Ton and Allen were back on the road this week, landing in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Things started off a bit rough as these out-of-towners were not the least bit welcome by the local bidders. Luckily for our Auction Hunters
they know how to warm up a crowd and were able to get a quick and easy insight to how storage auctions work in Florida, gaining a few pointers from the locals. What rooms they would win, how much they would spend and how much they would come out of this week's auctions with was anyone's guess. With new episodes airing Tuesdays at 10PM/9c
, let's jump right in and find out how things turned out in episode four for the Hunters.
Dice Popper Sold For: $5,000
Well over a hundred years old and with its original hand blown glass intact, this old time gambling device is the find of the season -- so far! If you weren't having any luck at the tables, you would throw down your nickel and play this quick game of chance. As a precursor to the slot machine, if you rolled the right number you won a small prize; a cigar or whatever the saloon was giving out that day. In the case of the Auction Hunters, pop goes the money.
It was these two big ticket items that went head-to-head on our weekly Facebook
competition to see which of these two our fans thought would come out on top. Without getting the full scoop on the items, our fans didn't fail to impress, choosing the smaller, more obscure 'popper' as the winner. Way to go Hunters!
The Hunters spent a sizable $3,450
on this week's rooms, but after selling the pinball machine, the dice popper, unloading some furniture to locals as well as some small tickets items they raked in a mind boggling $10,600
! The bikini clad beaches of Ft. Lauderdale proved to be very kind to Ton and Allen as their final take home totaled $7,150
in pure profit.
