MY CHANNEL: http://www.youtube.com/user/bluegeno

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!

@cycosteve2006 @cycosteve2006 Actually my wife had our son and it just became too much at the time.. It was a blast and a pain the at the same time. We mostly did car shows, events and vendor stuff. We also parked in front of bars downtown around 10pm -2am You would be suprised how many drunks buy ice cream in the middle of the night!

@bluegeno —it brutal here too!(bay area)–now $5 lockers are $100—these newbie think they are going to find the they see on tv —i can hear them dreaming —it’s always been a nickel and dime business—you can make a living but not get rich.

I recall of few …
I recall of few years back, around 1998 or so, a large car dealership in Vegas did huge amounts of TV advertising with a guy working for him dressed up in a genie costume and painted blue, head to toe….The guy went by the name of the Blue Genie………….I can’t remember the name of the car dealership, but, I remember the name of the guy dressed up in the Blue Genie outfit!!,,,,I think it’s a Great name for your business.

@bluegeno I would …
@bluegeno I would guess that your family members that have been long-time storage buyers aren’t real excited about you joining the TV shows in bringing additional public awareness to this business? Must be tough to operate out of a storage complex. I know you’re in a great spot for finding storage units – For over 25 years I’ve heard about the ‘finds’ and huge number of units sold monthly in Las Vegas…Best of luck to you in your new career of chasing the Storage Unit Home Run..

@bluegeno No joke .Me and my dad went 1/2 on it. The lady sold it to us for $5300.We sold it to a collector in upper state New York for $14,000. he is giving it a full resto It was ruff. The car came with 2 NOS rear Quarters and tons of small nos parts. If i would have know what i know now i would have kept it. but when the cash is there you cant resist. The lady that sold me the car sold a real A12 Superbee a week before foe $4100. I almost had a hart attack

Th coolest thing i …
Th coolest thing i ever found was back in 2007. I was at a estate sale very very green to the biz. started talking to this guy about some car parts he bought. I told him i was into cars. We talked and i gave him my card. By chance i wrote on the back looking for auto parts. never did that. About a year later i get a call from his wife saying her husband passed away and she found my card wanting to sell his stuff. I ended up with a 69 dodge charger RT #S match needed resto but had tons of NOS PA

@shadowfaxx1 Thanks …
@shadowfaxx1 Thanks for watching my vids, If you read below in the comments someone had asked me that already :) as far as ebay I have been doing it for a long time under a different username but for undisclosed reasons I had to change my ebay name. Dont let being new to ebay fool you. If you noticed I only bought 1 thing. All my other good feedback is from selling PLUS I sold a pair of $595 oakleys when I had about a 3 or 5 feedback rating!!

Posted by | June 26th, 2011 à 2:42 pm



I noticed that you …
I noticed that you are new to ebay? Or am I wrong? I thought you didn’t have much feedback yet, anyway, gotta ask how long you have been doing storage units? I’m about to break into the business myself. I’ve never gotten a sense of how long you have done this. Oh, and “Hi” Arizonapublic, love ya big guy! :P COOL CAR!!!

The weekend before …
The weekend before Memorial Day I hit one of the best garage sales of my life. I ended up spending $150, but most items were only $1 with only a couple being $5. I ended up getting a LOT of collectible items for my antique mall space, but it will take a long time to liquidate those types of things. (German hand painted plates, green glass stuff, a couple very nice vases, decorative items, etc.) Mostly stuff that is too scary to ebay due to the fact that it is fragile and heavy.
