Ricky and Bubba seemed like a sure thing in buying a locker with musical instruments in it. At the last minute Lesa starts bidding and they drop it on her when it goes over $2000! A bit surprising she overpaid, but she will make it work. Rudy was on the hunt for an appliance locker and got one below $500 pretty easily.
Ricky and Bubba find a lot of good tools in the locker they bid on. A few curious items were skeet shoots, clay targets and a kiln. Looks like the previous owner used to bake and make his own skeet clay targets for a business or to use. They appraise the tools and get the skeet throwing gear looked at. Their total for this locker made them the winner in making the most money in this round of bidding.
Kenny, new bidder, seems to have aligned himself with Ricky and Bubba as their main competitor. They bid Kenny up on a locker full of junk, but he does win a few lockers on this rainy day. Mary and Jenny to have some okay items in their furniture locker.
Jenny does focus on a big furniture locker with her mom and wins it. She is only bid up a little bit by Bubba. Ricky and Bubba are there to buy big lockers to build up their inventory for a big sale as their warehouse. The tools locker Bubba buys ends up being just about empty of all the tools. Moe and Mary need big items, but end up buying a locker full of mystery plastic tubs. Against Mary’s advice, Moe does buy the bins locker and they end up with a valuable gun site, worth $325 dollars.
Jenny is wise to Bubba and Ricky’s tricks, but still get taken by them and bid up on a locker full of luggage. She thinks there is designer luggage and some value there, but Ricky and Bubba don’t see a thing. Jenny bids, but cannot keep the bidding below $500 and overpays for it. She gets some old cameras and a cool leather jacket that fits her perfectly.
Victor is trying to bid and score a locker to break his curse of not buying anything lately. Jenny is trying to get advise and team up with Ricky and Bubba, but later finds out she is being tricked. Ricky and Bubba miss-lead Jenny and pick up a few good lockers themselves.
Ricky and Bubba clean up with two great lockers full of furniture. They end up calling down their nephews to unload both lockers and load up the furniture. They appraise all their items and it looks like they will make some good money on all of it. We finally see what Mary does with the TV she bought from Jenny, she makes a fish tank. There must have been something wrong with the water though, the fish appear to die immediately.
Mary was bidding in this episode without Moe. Ricky and Bubba saw this as a time to strike and get all the lockers, while Mary didn’t have her financial backing. Jenny was shopping for guy stuff for her store and to resell. Mary did try to channel Moe a few times and guess what he would say about her purchases or ideas. Pretty funny!
Ricky and Bubba bid on a locker originally for the furniture inside. While going through the pieces they discover a lock box. The get it open and find what looks like diamond rings. They are unsure and think they might be fake, so they go to Rickys mother to check. She uses some electronic tool to confirm if they are fake or not. Green light is real!
