These days, it’s almost impossible to flip through the channels without seeing a show that has something to do with storage auctions, antiques or pawn shops. Antique & vintage items are exciting and the history behind them is quite interesting & entertaining. Storage Wars & Auction Hunters are the two new storage auction reality shows that premiered almost simultaneously. The storage auction business was rather obscure before these shows came along. Since then, the popularity of these shows has essentially taken an underground business into the limelight.
