Anyone who knows us knows that we are always up for an adventure. We found another one! The Las Vegas Auction is like the world’s biggest garage sale- furniture, cars, coins, 80’s porn [I’m not kidding!], tools - if you can dream it they have it! Although you have to find it under all the dust in their dirty old warehouse and wait all day for them to get to it.
As part of her job, Dana’s Mom works with the auction guys. When we showed up we got the grand tour. They gave us the secrets to a successful auction experience. It was kind of like Disneyland, only insiders know that you start at the back and work your way to the front to avoid the crowds. Amazing items were going for pennies on the dollar. For example -- They had a huge travel trailer that could retail for $25,000 go for $12,500 – half the price! We bid on a few items and took home some watches & other assorted goods for a few bucks.
If you want to win in the auction, pace yourself, drink plenty of fluids, and don’t eat off the Roach Coach!Some of our treasures:
[Don't you love the nasty trailer behind Chad in the Harley picture? That is NOT the onle that went for $12,500.]
They’re somebody else’s now, but they were ours for a day. [Chad is still dreamin' about the Harley!]
