Rent a van. Rent a storage cube. Hire Tony. Profit.

Maybe a Uhaul 10 footer and pawn shop Steve, and probably pawn shop storage, but basically yeah. As I said to glatt in p.m., it's weird how there isn't a market for this, but it requires all that stuff to come together. You almost need a failing pawn shop to do it all.

A 10 footer is exactly the size you need.

Reminds me of that old Seinfeld episode where they "borrow" a mail truck to drive empties to Michigan to get the 10 cent deposit on them. They paid no deposit, so it was all profit! Hilarity ensued.

And you can't discount the labor involved in selling this stuff. It's not like it's a pile of cash sitting there. It's a big chore sitting there.

You probably can't sell this stuff in big lots because the people buying it don't want to spend that much in one purchase. I think you need bundle it to keep each auction under $60 or so.

I'm sure Steve would know how to handle it, if he wants to take this on.

True, but the Pawn shop has the mechanism in place.

You could prolly unload the whole lot at a fair-sized hobby shop.

It's turning out that this could be a really huge benefit for pawn shop Steve. I think he's planning to no longer be at the shop and this could really help him out for a while.

Bad news this morning.

The attorney who told me to trash the stuff has gotten cold feet. The client had paid to buy all this stuff, so he is now going to write a letter to the client to ask what to do with it.

I had found a couple boxes of legal files in with the merchandise and had to relay that information to him, and that opened a can of worms.

Everything is now on hold and up in the air.
