Last week we saw five relatable moments from Ghost Town Gold that will resonate with antiquers, thrifters, and everyone who loves old stuff. This week we have 5 more relatable antiquing moments, this time from the Canadian reality show Storage Wars, where the show’s stars bid on lockers that are being auctioned off (delinquent accounts) in the hopes of making a profit. The quality of this show is a bit more touch and go than Ghost Town Gold; overall, I give it 3.5 stars. However, in spite of its shortcomings, there are still quite a few moments that antiquers and thrifters will find relatable. See five of them in this post.
When Roy opens a box full of voodoo stuff and wonders, “Did I just put a hex on myself?”
No lie, this has happened to me before.
When Roy discovers an arm and remarks, “Just when you think things are getting strange, they get even worse.”
This is actually just an all-purpose relatable moment.
When Paul and Bogey find a “vintage piece of sh*t here, ladies and gentlemen.”
Some people have all the luck. Or rather, don’t.
When Roy, while narrating his life, says “He steps away from this mess.”
Sometimes you just have to step away.
When Roy acquires a bad locker and makes a memo: “Note to yourself: do not make that mistake again.”
We all make mistakes. The key is not repeating them.
