" - THESE ARE MAGAZINES FOR AN M-16 RIGHT HERE.
[country rock music] - THIS IS THE WOW FACTOR.
- I'M NOT INTIMIDATED BY ANY BUYERS.
- CASH IS KING.
WINNER TAKES ALL.
- YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GONNA ENCOUNTER.
- LET'S GO! LET'S GO! LET'S GO! - * MONEY OWNS THIS TOWN * MONEY OWNS THIS TOWN YEAH, YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT MONEY OWNS THIS TOWN - [auctioneering] SOLD! [western movie music] - TODAY, WE'RE IN PERRIS, CALIFORNIA.
THIS IS A COMMUNITY SURROUNDED WITH MOUNTAINS AND SOME LAKES.
- PERRIS IS KNOWN FOR ITS GREAT OUTDOOR ADVENTURE SPORTS.
- SO THERE'S A GOOD CHANCE THAT SOME HUNTING OR FISHING GEAR MIGHT SHOW UP TODAY.
- SINCE I'M LOOKING FOR COLLECTIBLES, I THOUGHT I'D DRIVE ONE-- MY 1947 CUSTOM CADILLAC.
SEE IF MAYBE IT'LL BRING ME SOME LUCK.
- MY STORE INVENTORY IS PRETTY FULL RIGHT NOW, SO I'M LOOKING FOR ROOMS THAT I CAN BUY CHEAP AND MAKE A GOOD PROFIT ON.
ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER AUCTION.
- IS THERE A METHOD BEHIND YOUR MADNESS HERE? - YEAH, I GOT A POCKET FULL OF MONEY, AND I PLAN ON GOING HOME BROKE.
BRANDI AND I REALLY NEED TO GET SOME MERCHANDISE FOR OUR STORE TODAY.
WE'RE LOOKING FOR BIG UNITS.
WE'RE LOOKING FOR UNITS THAT ARE PACKED FLOOR TO CEILING.
- TODAY'S ONE OF THOSE DAYS.
I'M IN THE PICKUP TRUCK.
BRANDON'S IN THE BIG CUBE TRUCK.
I'M READY TO BUY.
I CAN'T AFFORD TO DRIVE THESE TRUCKS AROUND AND GO HOME EMPTY-HANDED.
- ALL RIGHT, BEFORE YOU GO THROUGH THESE GATES, YOU NEED TO KNOW THE RULES OF THE AUCTION.
WE'RE GONNA GO TO THE DOOR, WE'RE GONNA REMOVE THE LOCK, GONNA GIVE YOU FIVE MINUTES TO TAKE A LOOK AROUND.
YOU CAN'T OPEN ANY BOXES, YOU CAN'T GO INSIDE.
ARE YOU READY? - YES! - WELL, THEN, LET'S GO! [overlapping chatter] ANYTHING ON A PALLET CAN'T BE BAD.
- FROM MY VAST BACKGROUND AND KNOWLEDGE, THE PALLET IN THIS UNIT IS WORTH MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE IN IT.
- UM THIS LOCKER SHOULDN'T EVEN COUNT.
I NEED 30 OF THESE TO FILL UP MY TRUCK.
- THIS IS STUFF THAT WE COULD PUT IN THE STORE.
WE COULD PROBABLY MAKE A COUPLE OF BUCKS OFF IT IF THE PRICE IS RIGHT.
- I THINK WHOEVER BUYS THIS ROOM IS GONNA MAKE THE MOST PROFIT OF THE DAY.
SOMETIMES YOU DON'T MAKE YOUR PROFIT ON WHAT YOU SEE.
YOU MAKE IT ON WHAT YOU DON'T SEE.
THERE'S A BAG THAT LOOKS LIKE IT'S WORTH GAMBLING ON.
I THINK I'M GONNA GO FOR THIS UNIT.
- ALL RIGHT, HERE WE GO.

YOU GOT IT FOR 60 BIG BUCKS.

C-14.
LET'S GO.
HERE WE GO, FOLKS.
THIS NEXT UNIT IS AN INTERIOR CORNER UNIT.

- YOU KNOW, THIS IS A REAL INTERESTING LOCKER.
THERE'S AN OLD, OLD ANTIQUE JUG.
AN AMMO BOX.
THERE'S SOME OLD DIESEL HORNS.
THIS LOCKER IS GONNA SURPRISE SOMEBODY.
I LIKE IT.
- WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING IN HERE.
THERE'S CLEARLY NO PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP.
NOTHING'S ORGANIZED.
THERE'S NO WAY I WOULD EVEN WASTE MY TIME BIDDING ON THIS UNIT.
[overlapping chatter] - I DON'T KNOW.
IT'S A GAMBLE.
TAKE A CHANCE, LOSE YOUR PANTS.
MAYBE.
- THERE'S A LOT OF-- LOT OF THINGS IN HERE, AND THEY'RE FAIRLY WELL PACKED IN THERE.
I'M JUST LOOKING FOR THAT ONE COLLECTIBLE ITEM.
THERE COULD BE SOMETHING IN ONE OF THESE BOXES.
I'M GONNA GO FOR THIS ONE.

[cheering] - I THREW MY MONEY OUT THERE TODAY.
I'M HOPING THAT THERE'S GONNA BE SOMETHING REALLY GOOD IN THESE LOCKERS.
- ALL RIGHT, A BIG OLD NICE TEN BY TEN UNIT.
LOOK AT THIS ONE.
- AND I SEE WHAT LOOKS LIKE A SPACE AGE LEATHER SOFA.
I DON'T THINK A LOT OF THE GUYS SEE IT.
I TELL YA, I NEED TO BE THE SHARK AND STRIKE FIRST.
- ALL RIGHT, IF YOU'RE READY TO GO, WE'RE READY TO GO.

- LOOK AT THAT.
- WHOO! - WHOA! - COME ON IN.
- ALL RIGHT, TAKE A LOOK AND DON'T OVERLOOK ANYTHING.
YOU GOT IT? - IT MIGHT BE WORTH BIDDING ON.
THERE'S A LITTLE BIT IN HERE.
I SEE A LOT OF POWER TOOLS IN THE FRONT, AND A LOT OF IT'S COVERED UP.
YOU KNOW, THERE COULD BE SOME PROFIT HERE.
I'M INTERESTED A LITTLE BIT.
WE'LL SEE.
- I THINK I LIKE IT.
- AN IMPORTANT NOTE, THERE'S AN ARMY DUFFEL BAG IN THERE, SERIOUSLY, AND I DON'T KNOW THAT IT SAYS "U.
S.
ARMY," BUT-- EVERYBODY'S FIXATED ON THOSE TOOLS.
THERE'S AN ARMY DUFFEL BAG, AND I'M THINKING TO MYSELF, MAYBE THERE'S A LOT MORE TO THIS LOCKER THAN MEETS THE EYE.
- ALL RIGHT, IF YOU'RE READY TO GO, I'M ALMOST READY TO GO.

GOT TO GO NOW.
SOLD IT YOUR WAY, BARRY.
YOU GOT IT FOR 800 BUCKS.
- FOR 800 BUCKS, THERE BETTER BE A COLLECTIBLE IN THERE.
- WELL, LET'S TAKE A LOOK HERE.
I BID ON THIS UNIT BECAUSE I KNEW IT WAS GONNA GO CHEAP.
NOW IT'S TIME TO FIND OUT IF I HIT A LITTLE GOLD MINE.
JUST GO AHEAD AND PULL THIS OUT.
PULL IT OUT.
CLOTHES, CLOTHES, AND MORE CLOTHES.
YEAH, THERE'S, UH, THERE'S NOT A LOT IN HERE BUT, YOU KNOW, WE'LL PACK IT UP AND WE'LL DO SOMETHING WITH IT.
I DON'T MIND GAMBLING ON A UNIT AND LOSING.
BUT, YOU KNOW, THESE PARTICULAR ITEMS AREN'T QUITE HIGH END ENOUGH FOR MY STORE.
GRAB THAT ONE.
NOW I'M GONNA HAVE TO FIGURE OUT SOMETHING TO DO WITH 'EM.
- TAKE ALL THE STUFF OUT OF THE BACK OF THE TRUCK.
TODAY WE PLAYED THE NUMBERS.
I BOUGHT THREE LOCKERS.
THAT'S THREE TIMES THE CHANCES OF ME FINDING SOMETHING REALLY GOOD.
- I THINK I'M LOOKING AT THE "WOW" FACTOR RIGHT NOW.
- YOU KNOW, THE APPLE DOESN'T FALL FAR FROM THE TREE, SON, SO YOU'RE GONNA LOOK LIKE THIS SOMEDAY, RIGHT? - LET'S ROLL, DADDY-O.
- RIGHT THERE, YOU'VE GOT THE REFRIGERATOR.
THERE'S 300 BUCKS WORTH OF STUFF RIGHT HERE.
BUT, UH, JUST MOVING THAT REFRIGERATOR, THIS LOCKER'S LOOKING REALLY GOOD.
IT'S ABOUT A $250 BILL HERE.
LET'S CHECK OUT THESE GOLF CLUBS.
GOT A SET OF CALLAWAYS HERE.
THE CALLAWAYS COULD PROBABLY BE ABOUT $300 OR $400.
LOOK AT THIS.
THERE'S TWO COMPLETE SOFA SETS IN HERE.
I'D SELL THIS SET RIGHT HERE FOR ABOUT $500.
THESE IS BRAND NEW.
YOU KNOW, ON THE HIGH END, $3,200.
ON THE LOW END, $2,800.
YOU KNOW, THIS LOCKER WAS PACKED WITH A LOT OF GOOD QUALITY ITEMS, BUT I'M STILL LOOKING FOR THAT GOLD.
- ALL RIGHT.
HERE GOES LOCKER NUMBER TWO.
WELL, YOU KNOW, THE REASON I BOUGHT THIS LOCKER RIGHT HERE IS THAT OLD TIKI BAR COUCH TYPE THING BACK HERE.
WHEN I BID ON THIS LOCKER, I WAS COUNTING ON THAT FUNKY LEATHER COUCH IN THE BACK.
I'M HOPING IT'S WORTH SOMETHING.
SET HER DOWN FOR A MINUTE.
WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE? IT'S ONLY VINYL.
IT'S NOT AS GOOD AS I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE.
SOI'M BUMMIN'.
THIS COUCH IS NOT MADE OF LEATHER, AND I'M GONNA BE LUCKY JUST TO GET MY MONEY BACK ON IT.
- SO I'M BACK AT THE LOCKER I WON FOR $800 TODAY.
IT'S TIME TO SEE EXACTLY WHAT I GOT MYSELF INTO.
UH, WHAT INITIALLY CAUGHT MY EYE WAS THAT BIG DUFFEL BAG, WHICH WE'RE GONNA GET TO.
ALL RIGHT, HERE COMES THE BIG STUFF.
WE'VE GOT A HEDGE TRIMMER.
[engine growls] DAMN IT.
ALL RIGHT, THIS IS THE PART OKAY.
[bleep] BAG OF SNAKES IN HERE.
I WAS HOPING THERE'D BE SOMETHING COLLECTIBLE IN HERE, BUT SO FAR, ZIP.
CHECK IT OUT.
POWER TOOLS.
HERE YOU GO.
SAWS, A SAWZALL.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT IS.
ALL RIGHT, WELL, LET'S MOVE ON.
WE'RE ONLY HALFWAY THROUGH.
SOMEBODY'S LEFT THEIR BONG IN HERE.
PENNIES FROM HEAVEN.
- THIS IS VERY FRUSTRATING TO WATCH RIGHT NOW.
I CAN SELL MOST OF THIS STUFF AT MY STORE, AND BARRY'S JUST THROWING IT AWAY LIKE IT'S TRASH.
WHAT DO YOU GOT HERE? I NOTICED YOU'RE JUST THROWING ALL THE STUFF.
- UH, HANG ON.
WE'VE GOT A LOT OF STUFF HERE THAT REALLY SHOULD BE GONE THROUGH WITH A LOT MORE CARE.
- YEAH, THAT'S WHAT I WAS THINKING.
- GO AHEAD, GO THROUGH IT.
- THAT WAS 100 BUCKS, BARRY.
IT'S REALLY HARD FOR ME TO LOOK AT THAT.
I'M OUT HERE, TRYING TO BUY A STORAGE UNIT, TRYING TO MAKE A LIVING, AND THEN I SEE SOMEBODY LIKE BARRY, WHO'S JUST IN IT FOR THE ONE ITEM, THAT ONE THING.
SO THEY'LL BUY A WHOLE UNIT LIKE THAT, AND THEY'LL GET THE ONE THING THAT THEY'RE GOING FOR, AND THEY TRASH EVERYTHING ELSE, AND IT REALLY-- IT KIND OF MAKES ME SICK.
I MEAN, I'M OVER THERE, WATCHING HIM BREAK $20 BILLS LIKE--LIKE THEY'RE NOTHING.
- THIS MIGHT BE THE ONE.
- BARRY, YOU'RE DOING A PRETTY GOOD JOB, BUT THERE'S STILL A COUPLE THINGS YOU HAVEN'T BROKEN YET.
HERE IT GOES.
WELL, NO COLLECTIBLES.
IT LOOKS LIKE I'M STUCK WITH A WHOLE BUNCH OF POWER TOOLS.
- RIGHT HERE.
[groans] GOD! I BOUGHT THIS? HOLY SHENIZITS.
I'M MOVING ON TO LOCKER NUMBER THREE, AND MY TRUCKS ARE KIND OF FULL, SO I'M HOPING TO FIND SOMETHING SPECIAL IN IT.
HEY, I WANT EVERYBODY TO PUT YOUR HARDHATS ON.
THIS IS A ROUGH LOOKING LOCKER.
HEY, THIS LOOKS LIKE IT'S ALL SEMI TRUCK PARTS FOR A BIG SEMI.
THIS IS AN OLD, UH-- - LIKE A MOONSHINE JUG? - YEAH.
LET'S SET THAT ASIDE.
- IT'S REALLY HARDHAT TO BUY THIS LOCKER.
- THESE ARE MAGAZINES FOR AN M-16 RIGHT HERE.
GOD, LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THOSE THINGS.
OOH, THAT'S LOADED.
HOLLOW POINTS.
THAT'S SCARY STUFF.
I JUST WANT TO FIND THOSE GUNS.
COME ON, WHERE'S THE GUNS? - YEAH, DUDE, WE GOT NOTHING IN THIS BOX.
- TRASH, PLEASE.
IT SAYS, "BEDTIME ANGER CONTROL.
" THIS LOCKER'S FULL OF HOLLOW-POINT BULLETS AND MEDICATION FOR YOUR MIND.
THIS HAS GOT TO BE DAVE HESTER'S STUFF.
- WHAT THE HELL IS THAT? WHAT IS THAT? - I DON'T KNOW.
I THINK IT'S SOMETHING LIKE A, UH, A TEA STEAMER OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT OR A PIPE.
YOU KNOW, I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS, BUT I CAN TELL IT'S OLD.
I CAN TELL BY THE WAY EVERYTHING'S WORE OFF OF IT.
AND I'M THINKING, IF I'M RIGHT, IT'S, LIKE, PUT WATER IN IT, AND IT STEAMS A TEA BAG OR SOMETHING.
I'M NOT REALLY FINDING ANYTHING A WHOLE LOT EXCITING, SO I'M GONNA TAKE THIS BRASS TEA BAG STEAMER THING OR WHATEVER THIS IS, AND I'M GONNA GO GET IT CHECKED OUT.
- I ROLLED THE DICE ON A UNIT TODAY THAT DIDN'T QUITE PAY OFF.
THE MERCHANDISE IN THERE JUST WASN'T QUITE HIGH-END ENOUGH FOR MY STORE, BUT I KNOW A PLACE THAT CAN ACTUALLY USE THIS MERCHANDISE.
BACK IN 2008, I WAS, I GUESS WE COULD JUST SAY, APPOINTED TO DO 30 DAYS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE AT THE GOODWILL INDUSTRIES.
HALFWAY THROUGH THE FIRST DAY, I STARTED NOTICING, IN A LOT OF WAYS, OUR BUSINESSES ARE SIMILAR.
WE SELL THE SAME TYPE OF PRODUCT.
THEY JUST SHOWED ME A DIFFERENT WAY TO PROCESS AND TO HANDLE LARGE VOLUMES OF MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS.
WHEN THE ECONOMY CRASHED, MY BUSINESS WAS HURTING, GOODWILL INFLUENCED ME TO COMPLETELY CHANGE MY STORE AROUND.
AND I ACTUALLY DID MORE BUSINESS SELLING THE MISCELLANEOUS, LOW-END MERCHANDISE, THAN I EVER DID SELLING THE HIGH-END FURNITURE.
I ALWAYS FEEL LIKE I HAVE A DEBT TO PAY BACK TO THEM, BECAUSE THEY ULTIMATELY DID SAVE MY BUSINESS.
- THANK YOU.
- THANK YOU.
- HAVE A GOOD DAY.
- OKAY, YOU TOO.
- I CHASED THIS LOCKER IN HOPES OF FINDING SOME COLLECTIBLES, AND INSTEAD, I WOUND UP WITH A BUNCH OF POWER TOOLS.
THEN I FIGURE, IF I CAN SELL ANTIQUES, POWER TOOLS SHOULDN'T BE THAT BIG A THING.
HONEST TO GOD, THEY'RE NOT STOLEN.
THEY'RE NOT STOLEN.
- ALL RIGHT.
- YOU'RE PROBABLY THINKING THEY'RE STOLEN.
- [laughs] MAYBE, YEAH.
- YOU READY? - YEAH.
- DON'T LOOK SO IMPRESSED.
- WELL, THOSE, YEAH.
THE TOOL, I MIGHT BE LOOKING A SKILSAW.
- YEAH.
I GOT A SKILSAW FOR YOU RIGHT HERE.
- HMM.
UH, YEAH.
I WAS LOOKING AT A DIFFERENT SKILSAW.
- YEAH, THOSE ARE PROBABLY A LOT OF MONEY, THOUGH.
- YEAH.
- THIS ONE'S NOT.
WELL, WHAT DO YOU FEEL LIKE PAYING? WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO PAY? - SELLING THESE TOOLS IS A HELL OF A LOT MORE WORK THAN I BARGAINED FOR.
I WONDER IF I COULD JUST HAVE A SEC OF YOUR TIME, MAN? I'M BARRY WEISS.
NICE TO MEET YOU.
HOW ARE YOU DOING, MAN? MY NAME IS BARRY WEISS.
HOW ARE YOU DOING? HOW ARE YOU DOING? I'VE GOT SOME POWER TOOLS I BOUGHT AT A STORAGE AUCTION.
I'VE GOT SOME POWER TOOLS.
THEY'RE SLIGHTLY USED.
- I WOULD SAY SO.
- SEE ANYTHING YOU LIKE? I'M SELLING THEM PRETTY CHEAPLY.
YEAH.
YOU WANT TO TAKE A LOOK? - NO.
I'M TOO BUSY RIGHT NOW.
- I SEE.
I'M GONNA DEEPLY DISCOUNT 'EM.
- YOU'D BE LUCKY TO GET - OKAY, WHAT WOULD YOU GIVE ME? - NOT A DIME.
- NOT A DIME.
SO MY PLANS DIDN'T REALLY WORK OUT.
I THINK A NEW APPROACH IS ON THE HORIZON.
- I FOUND THIS OLD BRASS TEA BAG THING.
I'M NOT REALLY SURE WHAT IT IS, BUT I KNOW BARRY KNOWS ENOUGH CUCKOO BIRDS OUT THERE THAT'S GONNA BE ABLE TO TELL ME WHAT THIS OLD BRASS THING IS.
- HELLO! - HEY, WHAT'S UP? - HI.
- WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU? - WELL, WE'VE GOT THE BRASS THING HERE THAT WE CALLED YOU ABOUT, AND YOU SEEMED TO THINK YOU KNEW WHAT IT WAS.
- OH, OH, OH, RIGHT.
IT'S A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS, ISN'T IT? - THERE YOU GO.
- ALL RIGHT.
- IT IS AN EAR TRUMPET, AND, UH - IT'S LIKE AN OLD-FASHIONED HEARING AID.
- YEAH, THIS, LIKE, UH, THIS ONE WOULD BE CALLED LIKE A BANJO MODEL, YOU KNOW.
IT'S LIKE, YOU COULD - OKAY.
- THIS ONE, THE SOUND IS PROBABLY BETTER, BECAUSE IT CAN ROTATE INSIDE THAT BIG-- - YEAH, LET ME HEAR.
SEE IF IT WORKS.
- HELLO.
- YEAH.
GOD, IT WORKS.
BUT IF YOU HAVE TWO, YOU CAN HAVE STEREO HORNS.
THAT'D BE REALLY GOOD, YEAH.
YOU KNOW, IT'S GOT A NICE PATINA.
IF ANYBODY DOES FIND SOMETHING THAT'S BRASS OR BRONZE, NEVER CLEAN IT, 'CAUSE YOU WANT TO KEEP THE PATINA.
IF YOU CLEAN IT, THEN YOU'VE, LIKE, SCREWED IT UP.
- I LOOKED AT IT, AND YOU COULD TELL IT WAS PROBABLY SOMETHING PRETTY COOL, I MEAN-- - YEAH.
- ESPECIALLY 'CAUSE, I'VE NEVER SEEN ONE.
- WELL, IT'S PROBABLY NOT AS OLD AS YOU THINK IT IS, 'CAUSE THIS--THE END HERE IS LIKE BAKELITE, WHICH IS LIKE THE FIRST KIND OF PLASTIC, AND THAT CAME OUT SOMEWHERE AROUND ABOUT, I DON'T KNOW, 1910, SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
SO THAT WOULD KIND OF DATE IT IN MY EYES.
- TURN OF THE--YEAH, TURN OF THE LAST CENTURY.
- SO LET'S GET TO THE MEAT OF THE POTATO.
WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK IT'S WORTH? - SOMETHING LIKE THIS, UM I WOULD SAY ANYWHERE FROM A COUPLE OF HUNDRED UP TO, IF YOU'RE REALLY LUCKY, MAYBE $350.
- $350 IS AWESOME.
TO ME, THAT'S THE WOW FACTOR.
YOU KNOW, IF I CAN BRING TWO TRUCKS EVERY TIME AND HIT LIKE THIS, I'M GONNA DO IT.
- WELL, YOU'RE--YOU'RE THE MAN.
GO FIND SOME MORE.
- THANKS.
- YOU'RE WELCOME, MATEY.
ANYTIME.
narrator: THE BIG WINNER WAS DARRELL SHEETS, MAKING A FINAL PROFIT OF 3,000 BUCKS ON HIS THREE LOCKERS.
JARROD AND BRANDI WALKED AWAY WITH SOME EMPTY SHELVES.
DAVE HESTER SPENT 60 BUCKS ON SOME GOOD KARMA.
AND BARRY WEISS - SELLING THESE TOOLS IS A HELL OF A LOT MORE WORK THAN I BARGAINED FOR.
BUT I'VE GOT ONE MORE ACE UP MY SLEEVE.
THIS MUST BE THE PLACE.
- BARRY! WHAT'S HAPPENING, BARRY? - LOOK WHAT I'VE GOT FOR YOU GUYS.
- WHAT IN THE--? - UH, WELL, REMEMBER THOSE TOOLS? WELL, I DIDN'T DO THAT GREAT.
- MAYBE BARRY'S STARTING TO REALIZE IT'S NOT THAT EASY TO MAKE MONEY DOING THIS.
- ALL RIGHT.
I'LL TELL YOU WHAT.
TAKE 'EM FOR WHATEVER YOU'VE GOT IN YOUR POCKET.
- ALL RIGHT, THAT'S A DEAL.
- [chuckles] THIS IS LAP DANCE MONEY.
