Heavy Hitters In Hermosa Beach

October 2, 2012
Hermosa Beach is known for its golden sand beaches and amazing pier, but this week it was the target city for Ton, Allen, and Carolyn. It was tempting to let go of their goal and just go surfing all day long, but the trio was determined to come out of this place with fistfuls of cash. Let's find out how our heroes did this week, shall we?

REPLICA TREBUCHET

Sold For: $2,175

After dragging out a 50s diner booth in their second unit (not your typical living room furniture), Ton stumbled upon a trebuchet. When you're in the auction hunting biz, it's a war out there, so it was very fitting that the boys found a siege war weapon. Okay, maybe it was actually a replica, but that didn't mean it couldn't' fetch some coin according to Allen. This time, things got a little different: Ton and Allen brought Carolyn along to actually help out with negotiating a fair sale price with Dave, a weapon maker who wanted this mega weapon. The fella sure was thrown off when Carolyn started throwing numbers out aggressively (go Carolyn!), and eventually our dream team ended up getting $2,175 in cold hard cash for their find.

There's no doubt it was indeed a small auction, but it was also a big pay day in Hermosa Beach for the Auction Hunters: they bought two storage units for $950, sold the items inside for $5,518, and left the city with a profit of $4,568. If Carolyn was being put to an auction hunting test this episode, she definitely passed with flying colors. A+!

You've probably been always wondering who would win in a boxing match between Ton and Allen. Why ponder any longer?
