Home to wealthy residents, a famous monthly flea market, and jam-packed with antique items that would make any collector jump in joy, Pasadena was stop for the Auction Hunters
this week. Let's jump right to it - time to clean out the storage units and see what Ton and Allen could salvage from their trip to the City of Roses:
FAKE PUNT PAYOFF
Humongous shipping containers means humongous finds inside, and that's just what the boys were hoping for when they stepped onto the scene. At the auction, there were old faces and new faces, but one thing was for certain, they were all ready to pounce on any unit and give the Auction Hunters
a tough time. On top of that, there were lines and lines of units this time - 36 to be exact - but Ton and Allen knew which ones were the winners and purchased two very promising units for $600
SEGWAYSSold For: $5,500
The first unit, the "Bubble Wrap" unit, was just ripe with goodies: a wooden executive desk, air pumps, "zorb" balls, and an awesome pair of Segways. Who doesn't want to ride on a Segway at least once in their life? It's just a good time. It was then time to go hustle like pros, so Ton and Allen visited Suzanne, a Segway Dealer who was interested in seeing what kind of Segways the boys had on their hands. The Segways were apparently super oldschool, Generation 1 Segways to be exact, and Suzanne took them off the Auction Hunters'
hands for a cool $5,500
. See? Segways are always a good time.
PUNT GUN Sold For: $5,000
You're probably wondering who would use a huge carpet to wrap something, right? Well, it's definitely worth it when what you're sheathing in protection is a gigantic gun – really, really gigantic. I'm talking so big it even made Ton look so small. After talking to Brian, an avid collector of antique firearms, our heroes realized that this beast of a gun was a punt gun. So maybe it wasn't used in Football, but this kind of gun was in great shape and more importantly, hadn't even been made for about 100 years - so it easily fetched $5,000
for the boys. As is Auction Hunters
tradition, Ton absolutely had to put this mega firearm to work, absolutely decimating the shooting target. Yep, big guns mean big cash.
It was just pure Pasadena profit this week: after spending just $600
on two units, The Auction Hunters
were simply surprised with how much moolah they stuffed into their wallets. The boys sold their finds for $12,760
and took home $12,160
in profit. Cha-ching!
