The crew did an auction marathon of 25 units in Riverside, CA. Darrell had a new whispering technique when discussing the contents of lockers. The heat started to show as tempers rose between Brandon and Dave. Barry drove his roadster and wanted to prove he still had some stamina.
The first unit was a huge 12’ by 43’ unit. It was crammed full of all sorts of things. Dave was determined to make everyone pay. Barry won it for $1,100 after Dave bid him up. The unit was massive and Barry went to work on sifting through it. He found a nice antique wood table and some average athletic equipment. Barry found fencing uniform and some old swords. The fencing stuff was dated to the 1950s and the swords were used only as props for some sort of theatrical event, so everything was worth only $50.
The next featured unit was clean and had a lot of new items in plain sight. Several people were very interested in the unit and Jarrod went way over the $800 cap, but Darrell still won it for $1,350. Brandon and Dave then got in an argument and Dave looked legitimately ready for a fistfight. I was impressed with his moxy versus the much bigger, younger, and heavily tattooed Brandon. Lamps, chairs, and lots of household items with price tags added up fast. The unit was filled with 15 tubs of new brand named clothing. Brandon and Darrel were very happy with the guy
The last featured unit showed some age with some many boxes. Barry tried to bid Dave up a bit, but Dave said the couch was 120 years old. Barry bet Dave $5,000 that the couch was not 120 years old. The unit was filled with personal clothing and only $300 in little miscellaneous yard sale stuff. Barry and Dave took the sofa to an expert and both of them ponied up 5k each before the appraisal. Dave began to get very nervous as the expert continued to talk. The age was set at 1950 and Barry won the bet.
Dave had a very bad day with a near fight, a bad buy, and a lost 5K bet to Barry. His new saying may be Yuuuckkk!!!
Brandi and Jarrod $0
