Scavenger Life Episode 516: Being Punk Weirdos Made Us Good At Enterprise

Nice present.  Love the thought of be punk wierdos.  One of many enjoyable issues about going to Property Gross sales is seeing all the opposite scavengers.  You may inform most of us are a bit out of the mainstream, although I’m undecided I’ve made the wardrobe transition transition but.  I’m nonetheless not lengthy sufficient and much sufficient away from company America and hanging on to outdated habits. 😉  I guess there could be some nice tales about how their lives transitioned to get to being scavengers.

You talked about home gross sales and it made me consider an article within the Washington Publish I learn over the weekend.  One home in Chevy Chase, MD, offered for $1,000,000 over the asking value: $4.4M as a substitute of the $3.4M asking value.  Fairly rarified air in that neighborhood.  Washington Tremendous Properties: 23 PRIMROSE ST, CHEVY CHASE, MD 20815 (

One other home a number of blocks away from this one offered for upwards of $10M final yr, and the brand new homeowners instantly started intensive renovations.  I imagine which may be the costliest zip code within the US.

Didn’t have a a lot better week final week however no less than again above worst week stage.    Spent loads of time posting objects I bought the earlier week and researching public sale heaps to bid on. Received a number of heaps at a Maxsold public sale and am fairly happy with the haul.  Felt like outdated instances, pre-pandemic.  This specific public sale was neglected by different patrons and I ended up with a number of heaps for affordable.   Very eclectic mixture of stuff from Tumi baggage, to outdated cameras, to vintage beer steins.  Vendor should have had a retailer sooner or later as a result of loads of the objects had been model new in field.  Fortunately, the one that took the photographs did a crappy job, and there was way more within the heaps than anticipated, so it felt like a serious rating.  Will hold me busy for a number of weeks.
