    Anyone here watch Storage Wars on A&E??

    Episode on tonight had a sewing armoire that was so neat. Was a full size tall with double doors that opened and had a drop down sewing table with 2 levels to place sewing machine. It also have a bunch of shelves/cubbies in it. The guy who won the unit said it would sell for about $200. Wish I were there, I would have bought it! LOL There was also a portable sewing machine but he didn't unbox it but valued it at $200 (was probably a plastic machine).

    I'm just waiting for the day one of the units is opened and there sits a whole bunch of vintage and antique machines!
    Right now the show is mainly filmed in CA and then there's the Texas episodes. This is a funny funny show!!

    I have watched the show a lot, but was not home tonight so missed that one. Maybe I will catch it another time.

    I love watching that show! Wouldn't that be fun - going around bidding and then rummaging thru?

    I would only hope that there would NOT be a Dave, if I decided to start bidding on these units. What a hateful character.

    I think it wouldn't have as many viewers if they were all nicey nice. I love this show and American Pickers. There are storage locker auctions around here once a month or so but I would have no way of hauling that stuff or what to do with the stuff you don't want. But it would be an adventure!

    I actually like "Auction Hunters" with Allen and Ton better. They work as a team and have a great time doing it. You don't get the bickering that you get with Storage Wars. And Allen and Ton have such a wealth of knowledge about so many things, it just boggles my mind. Love those guys.

    My neighbor told me that there is a cabinet like that at a little re-sale shop in our town. The show last night reminded me about it. I think I need to go check it out, it even has a sewing machine in it.

    "YUUUUUPPPP" I love this show...and have just gotten my Mom hooked on it, too...Dad says that she watches it for hours when they have a marathon.
    I didn't see all of the show last night...figures that I would miss that part. Will have to catch it in reruns.

    Darlene, I would hustle right on over to that re-sale shop and grab it up if it is the right price and in good shape!! It would work perfectly in my very small sewing room!

    Welcome, Craftycat! Did you find your cabinet in a sewing machine shop? Thanks so much for giving us the model # and info...now we can start watching out for them. Since you've only seen 3, wonder if Singer just made them for a short time?

    Yup I do watch this and the others mentioned here as well. Dave is a real jerk though. But on the cabinet, I have seen 2 of them on Craigs list in about the last 6mos. I would have jumped on either of them, but....I do not have the room for one. One even included the sewing machine!!

    About once a month, I watch whatever shows are on file in the on demand lifestyle channel. It's like my own personal mini marathon because there are usually at least four I haven't seen before.

    I like Auction Hunters, occasionly watch Storage Wars. I enjoy the "finds" but often think of the poor people that didnt pay the rent and lost their possessions. Many times with valuable items stored, I wonder why they didnt sell the items to pay the rent.

    One time there was a box filled with a coin collection, easily converted to cash.

    oh I LOVE that show - since we got a DVR with DISH, we can record ANYtime and do! Barry seems to know everyone in the music business, and was wondering something about him - WOW - it took me to "what are these bidders worth" My my my - Barry can buy and sell ALL the others including the irritating YUUUUUUUUUUUUUP person! That sewing cabinet was wonderful! The Texas one - not so great - the podiatrist sounds like Barry and was wondering why the guy who lives in New York goes all the way to Texas for these auctions??? It is great entertainment!

    I manage a storage facility, and am the auctioneer for our sale units. Storage Wars has been an amazing boost to our sale prices!
    Before the show, we would get anywhere from $5 to $200 for a unit. Now, a 10x10 that's full will bring as high as $1500... from folks that are sure that they are going to find that elusive treasure that's valued at $20K. It's almost kind of sad, really, since most folks that have anything of value pay for their units!

    Those "treasure" units are few and far between, and SW doesn't show all of the units these guys buy that they loose money on. Not only that, but I'd go to a few of these auctions myself if I had the resources that these guys have for researching value!

    I love watching the show tho, and would love to have those guys show up at one of our auctions!! Would show my own "Dave", "Barry", and wussernames a thing or two!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    I've watched, and would love to go to one of those auctions too - I've always loved farm auctions, but now that I'm in a townhome, no need for anything much, other than quilting related!

    We watch that channel almost religiously, I like all the hunt ones with the antiques and unique finds. DH also likes the Axe Men, Swamp Hunters, Ice Road Truckers, man, you could spend ALL your time watching them. I was watching one that I cannot think of the title, but they paid a guy $1500 to go through this old Lace Factory and they could have anything they wanted out of it except a couple of items that were iconic to the town, like the bell in the bell tower. They came accross a room with a bunch of machines in it and just passed it by. He said he was reminded of the time he bought a room full of machines and couldn't give them away. That statement caught my attention. I guess he didn't know enough to post them here on the QB! LOL

    I have a storage unit with most of my sewing paraphernalia in it while I'm waiting for my studio to be finished. Have wondered what these guys would think of my unit. Would they even appreciate the value of what's in there? Just a thought.
