The crew went to Garden Grove, CA for this episodes auction. The whole gang was back and Dave continued to annoy as usual. The new guy Jeff has been mysteriously absent since Dave’s return. Barry brought in actors to play the part of international lawyers to confuse the regulars.
The first locker was a big outside unit that looked to have a whole house in there. Dave and Barry squared off toe to toe for it. Barry flipped the script on Dave and dropped the unit on him for $2,300. Dave brought the contents back to his storage unit. He found many Egyptian pieces. He found $700 worth of scrap gold and lots of costume jewelry.
The second unit was small with a dollhouse and a piano. Barry used his “German” actors to distract the other bidders by asking for phone numbers. Barry won the unit for $245 while Dave talked to the actors about his email. Barry found several antiques and chests. The dollhouse had a lot of detail and was complete. In the roof of the dollhouse he found a “ready kilowatt” lamp. He took it to his electronic novelty expert Dennis. Dennis was thrilled with the piece from the 1930s. The bulb worked and it was very cool. The value was $3,000 for the lamp and bulb and Barry sold it to Dennis for $1,600.
The last unit had some mattresses and several sealed boxes. Dave made a late bid to push Jarrod up to $850 and Brandi was very pissed off. Old clothes and used electronics were not adding up to big money. Brandi was not optimistic and Jarrod believed. They found a leather jacket and a motorcycle helmet, which was their only chance at breaking even. The jacket was dated to the 1950s and it was in great condition. It was valued at $900.
