BIG THANK TO http://www.youtube.com/user/RaistlinsWorld for sending me the vegas ashtray…

About me and my Channel: Like some of you reading this I have been involved in the reselling business in one form or another since early childhood. I like to use the term entrepreneur. One of my first ways to make money as a kid was mowing lawns. I worked very hard one summer to save up for a VCR (when they used to be very expensive!). I have always enjoyed yard sales, garage sales, auctions, etc even as a kid. I used to tag along with my father to auto auctions, estate sales, and the occasional storage unit auction. The older I got the more involved I became at making money for myself. I loved the idea of being self-employed, buying, selling, meeting people, and basically hunting for treasure! Fast forward to today I am primarily involved self storage unit auctions, yard sales, estate sales, making money, selling on ebay, selling on craigslist, and any other way to make an extra income. I say extra income because I do currently have a full time career which pays the “bills”. My true passion however is everything mentioned above. When you are doing something you love then it is never work! I started my channel out of pure entertainment for myself and quickly got hooked into the youtube community. I enjoy making videos and sharing with everyone pages out of my life in the storage auction, picker, reselling, and make money world.
Thank you for all the love and support you have given me thus far!

That’s happened to …
That’s happened to me a LOT…especially when I was first starting out. I would have a feeling about something but then I wouldn’t buy it…and ended up kicking myself later. In fact, I just did that about 2 weeks ago w/ a really old set of encyclopedias and a pair of bookends. I went back later and they were gone. I have to trust my gut. Great score on the storage unit!!

I went to an auction yesterday and was determined to get coins.I let another guy get about 20 eisenhowers for 60 bucks.while I stood there and choked.

I thought about buying a 22 rifle at a yard sale for 75 bucks, but i put it down and another guy picked it up and bought it for 60.

The “do you live in …
The “do you live in a hotel” is kind of like the question californians get, “do you know anybody famous?”. Lol. I’ve gotten that a lot (I lived in California my whole life until a year ago I moved to Colorado).

How’s the economy …
How’s the economy out there, Chris? Housing, jobs,etc.? The 10,000 ft view does not look so good. Not that it looks good anywhere else. Hope you’re able to benefit from this crappy economy, and good luck out there!

why no smoking in …
why no smoking in the car? is it kind of hot to wear a hat is it more of a disguise so other people not notice you bidding? can any of the stuff you get have leins on it? when you buy storage stuff can the deadbeats find out who bought their unit or track you down just asking cause when I watch operation repo on tv the people get mad when car get taken away

I know the feeling …
I know the feeling about going to the STRIP. I work on the Strip, and do anything to avoid it. It does make sense to stop and take a look around sometimes. Great vid.

@annabellasgiftshop absolutely, and thats exactly what happened.. I ended up getting two different units and totally forgot about the other 2…

Great video – loved …
Great video – loved the drive-by tour of the strip! In response to your question: I kuck myself all the time for not getting something at a sale….but I then remind myself that there will always be another sale and another find for me to buy. I try hard not to look back and to just keep moving forward! :-)

@Ohio1TreasureHunter haha your right about me. I have 3 modes ON, OFF or STANDBY… I must have been in standy by when I let those units go..

To respond to your …
To respond to your question, yes that has hapened to me. I once has a basket full of items at the thrift store I knew for sure I could resell. Not for alot but still a profit. I ended up setting it down and not buying anything. IMO I felt it was my body telling me to stop and I was hitting burn out phase. I tend to go without sleep and don’t realize how tired I’ve got until Im ready to drop dead. A guy like you seems to have endless energy so I dunno, maybe you just werent feeling it that day?

@MakingMovesMajor hahaha! if your not the first to notice you are the first to say it! When I am doing anything auction related i just wear the cheap white tees. a few good shirts got ruined for me to figure that one out…

I stopped in …
I stopped in Pawnstars last year and there was no line. It was busy but not too bad. The big guard guy at the front door just asked me if I was there for business or a sight seer. I just said I’m looking for treasures and he let us in. The only person I saw that is on the TV show was Chumlee.
