The crew went to Santa Ana, California for this episode. Barry called Dave out for his lack of buying. Jarrod and Brandi had their usual argument about overspending versus needing units to fill the shelves of their store. Darrell wanted to beat Jarrod out of a locker to him back in his place. Dave said he witnessed a unit sold at the location in the past that had a million dollar piece in it.
The first unit was a bare 9’ by 8’ locker. There were tubs and a model train set box visible. Action was slow and the price was low until Dave pushed the price up on Barry. Barry held strong and bought it for $595. Barry went through the unit in between sales. The vintage model train set was in tact and could be worth money. There was also an ammunition box filled with weights that was worthless. Barry found very little value in the unit until he found some more model trains. The unit was not worth a fortune, but it was better than a “$2,000 kick to the balls” according to Barry.
The next unit had a lot of volume, but the quality was not there. Barry then turned his attention to Dave and his lack of buying at recent auctions. Dave told Barry that he was around to make other pay more for their units. Everyone started to jump on the anti-Dave movement. The unit got to 4 digits fast and Barry wanted to show off his money, but Jarrod wanted a pissing contest. Jarrod and Brandi won the unit for $3,400. The unit had some good electronics, including a keyboard guitar. That needed to be checked out. The final result was they were going to lose money on the unit, unless the “key-tar” played monetary notes instead of musical ones. Brandi and Jarrod went to a bar to get their “key-tar” appraised. A musician gave the couple the good news of the value of $1,200 as Brandi fawned over him
The third unit was a gamblers unit and Darrell wanted it bad. He outbid Jarrod at $350 and won the unit. Dave stormed off happy he didn’t buy a locker. Brandon found some swords and clothes. A lot of the bags did not contain what they were meant to hold, but Darrell did find a box of nice China wear that he estimated at being worth $1000. The locker was full of very quality cookware that added up to a lot of money for the father–son duo. Darrel uncovered some solid brass bookends made by Ralph Lauren. Brandon was very intrigued by some “Magic: the gathering” playing cards. Darrell and Brandon took the cards to an expert at a trade show. Most of the current cards were worthless, but the binder had some very collectable cards. Darrell sold the collection for $700 after a flip of a coin for the final price.
