Dad was funny when Big Hoss bought the boat. What makes it work is they all think they are in charge. I couldnt beleive when Grampa didnt buy that 51 yankees ball.

I've caught parts of it a couple of times. It is pretty interesting what people bring in, and the knowledge the owners have about a wide variety of items.

Ive got it on the DVR to record.

Very interesting on all of the historical stuff still floating around out there yet and people choose to bring it to a pawn shop instead of trying to sell it themselves.

I was talking about this with my wife.

I think the producers find things on HSO-Classifieds / HSO-Classifieds / trade show papers that people are selling, contact the people, and have them bring their products to a pawn shop, and then the producers pay behind the scene the difference between what the customer gets / wants and what the pawn shop says.

The show I saw last night, a guy brings a $20,000 cannon in to pawn. Why wouldn't you list that on HSO-Classifieds or a Civil War HSOforum?

I would have to agree that something is going on behind the scenes to get people in or to make it worth their while.

On yesterdays show they said that 75% of people CANT reach an agreement on price.

Caught the show for the first time tonight. Had to laugh at the guy with the colonial era pistol that he thought was worth about $1000 or more and came to find out it was a replica worth about $75. I think he said he paid $800 for it and the wife was making him get rid of it. Ouch.

This show is hilarious. I enjoy all of the crazy stuff that's been brought in. I am sure the producers find these people, but its still crazy what they are trying to sell. The old man cracks me up.

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
