Counting Cash In Kailua

September 22, 2012
With all the fun the Auction Hunters had in Hawaii last week, they knew they had to stay for one more auction…just one more adventure to find some loot in the tropical paradise. Heck, they did fly nearly 2,500 miles just to get there, so why not, right? Was the second day in Hawaii filled with as much fun and cash as the first day? Let's find out:



Everyone knows Ton loves two things to death: antique firearms, and tattoos, so it's no surprise that when he stumbled upon antique Polynesian tattoo equipment he was like a little boy opening up a present on Christmas Day. When Ton and Allen rendezvoused with potential buyer named Keone, a Polynesian Tattoo Artist (FYI there's not a lot around these days). Not only were these things made out of water buffalo horn and seabird bone, they were in the mind of Keone simply priceless – so it was only fitting that Ton and Allen would donate the tools. Sometimes, things just need to go into the hands of tradition. The boys did get one reward though: Ton got a one-of-a-kind tattoo!

A traditional Polynesian tattoo, profit, and some beautiful sunshine and surfing made Hawaii yet another pleasurable (yet profitable) venture. Our team spent $1,925 on two units, sold their discoveries for $9,125, and left the beautiful island with $7,225 of profit in their pockets.
