[quote:Anonymous Coward 5744154:MV85Njg4MzVfMjgyNTQ0MzBfRjdBMTRBQTY=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 5744154:MV85Njg4MzVfMjgyNTQyNTFfRDI3MUExMDQ=] Here is the OP's problem...He/She is a Picker and is pissed off at all the attention this show has brought to the Biz...Before this show and others(Storage Wars) stuff was even cheaper, alot Cheaper....It was a "Insider Secret" Now you've got these shows and BAM! more folks are getting into these types of business and making it harder for the "Old Timers" [b]to get the "Deals" they were used to[/b]. FWIW, I'm an Auctioneer and my crowds have tripled due to "Storage Wars"...Good for me and the seller(s) but not for the buyers BTW, Storage Wars and the others like it are all "Set Up" for the camera....THERE IS NO! GOLD IN THEM LOCKERS! [/quote] I'll even go further and give you an example: Washer & Dryer...Most folks have them right... Before these shows came out/on...It wasn't uncommon to see a "Maytag" W&D in like new condition to sell for 60 dollars for the pair....sold a set yesterday at auction for 200 dollars...and the Junkers we used to not be able to give away brought 30 dollars(I chalk this up to the increase in scrap metal prices) [/quote]
I can NOT believe that the HISTORY channel would show such a disgrace to our older generation. TO think for one minute this would somehow be cleared to air is appalling. To brag or somehow boast about an unsolicited visit to Leland's farm and the price paid versus the actual value should be illegal. If this would have been my granddad I would have felt robbed of my family heirloom and treasures. The History Channel should immediately cancel this show!!!!!!!!!!!!! We were so looking forward to a new show that was really about hidden treasures in American not thievery we couldn't even finish the show.
These guys are scum bags !!!!! Nice job History Channel way to promote thieves . I would love to meet these guys face to face , and work a deal out with them. If you know what I mean ! And my parents always told me crime doesn't pay, unless you make a show for the History Channel .Way to teach kids its ok to steal from the older generation. History Channel you should make things right pay these people fair price for their stuff, and fire these dirt bags
