I think the key would be if the people who bought it were made aware 'hey, I bought this unit, rummaged through it, and am now re-selling online'.

But what are the chances of that happening? Pretty good if Travis wants VSA.com to stick around for any length of time.

I bought a locker Friday.. a womans apartment..nice furniture , kitchen cookware & accessories, clothing of course ... and .. several NEW in the box adult toys ... I sold everything except the toys within 24 hours... I'm a top rated seller on ebay and have an excellent reputation.. I do NOT want to list any items that need to be placed in the "Adult" category... my question is How Do I get Rid of these 6 items?? any suggestions?

You could setup another eBay account to sell those types of items

The "BEST" (or the worst) bag I ever opened was a white plastic bag. Inside I noticed something LARGE and BLACK.  That was not so bad but the Brown smears on the  inside the bag made me vomit, just a little but sit there was vomit.   

Best part really about this was that the unit was an office.  The person called about 10 times over the next two days asking for his personal belongings.  All I found that was personal was INNNNN guess where a white plastic bag.

No not really. It's just that even one sounds like a lot when it's your unit.

You can reasonably expect to find porn or adult toys in 10-20% of the units you buy. It's just part of this business.

I don't see that much of it. Must be a Texas thing! :)

I think it's just a "human" thing and it's part of this business. We're dealing with people's personal property. Sometimes it's gets really personal. It's so common in this business, Glendon Cameron wrote a book about storage auctions titled "The Porn is Always in the DVD Player." Although it's a ridiculous title for a book, it speaks volumes about this business.

Hmm, I never thought of that. I usually bring along a carton of milk and a spoon, just in case.

Oh wow. I remember when I was younger and saw something of the sort in my mothers closet. Never went in there again. I was so grossed out. But finding a strangers... And a man's.... Oh, ouch. I would have dropped the box and ran like I saw a spider.
