AIR DATE: December 2, 2010

The History Channel's new show, Storage Wars, is about people who auction off the contents of storage units. We've got plenty of those in Las Vegas. With foreclosures and people moving out, storage units are filling up. But what do people keep inside? And what are you buying when you bid on that garage of mystery items? (One woman found a bag of cash!) The state also auctions off unclaimed property from safe deposit boxes - what do they find inside? Stories of gold, paintings, and other treasures. The auctioneers spill the secrets!

GUESTS
Curt Hubbard, auctioneer, Grand Ole Auction & Clark County Public Auction
Mary McElhone, Deputy Treasurer, State of Nevada Office of Unclaimed Property, Nevada Office of the State Treasurer

How do we find out about the county and safe deposit box auctions? Whenever the news reports them it's always AFTER the fact.
