TON'S HOT COMMODITY
With Ton already at the auction in Thousand Oaks and Allen on his way from Reseda, our dynamic duo was initially split up and had to handle things a bit differently this time around. When the first unit rolled up for Ton to see, it was packed full of vintage furniture – unfortunately, that's one of Allen's specialties. Ton ended up losing the first unit to a feisty little blonde called Carolyn as a result. When Allen arrived though, the boys were back on their A-game and snagged two units for just $1,050. The Auction Hunters can't be stopped!
Sold For: $4,000
After saying their goodbyes to Carolyn AKA the "Warrior Princess," Ton and Allen strolled on over to their first unit. This "Fireworks Unit" was just a blast: cool masks, some antique folk art, a searchlight, and a very, very lovely bow and arrow set. This bow and arrow set was definitely the real deal, so they rendezvoused with Marcus, an Archery instructor and collector of all sorts of bows and arrows. The bow, a collectible, was made from Amazonian wood. Even better, it brought forth an Amazonian profit for our heroes: $4,000 to be exact.
Sold For: $3,000
In the "Sporting Goods Unit," things started heating up when the Auction Hunters found a flamethrower – correction, mock flame thrower. But just because this thing wasn't 100% real doesn't mean Ton and Allen weren't going to go fishing for buyers. They decided to meet with Jeff, a pyrotechnician and special effects wiz who could definitely tell the boys if their find was a blockbuster of flop. Alright, so maybe this thing was more Hollywood than it was military, but it definitely was sizzling with value, because Ton and Allen swapped it for $3,000 in cash.
What an explosive adventure for the Auction Hunters this week! A bow and arrow set from the Amazon that any collector would want hung on his wall, and a scorching hot flamethrower that put a smile on Ton and Allen's faces. The boys spent only $1,050 on the two storage units at the auction, sold their items for $9,130 and peeled out of Thousand Oaks $7,630 richer.
After all this talk about flamethrowers, you must be wondering if Ton or Allen got to put this badboy to use.
