TV’s Modern Day Treasure Hunters Strike It Rich With Viewers
We’ve heard of bargaining and thrifting, but the TV trend at the moment is all about competitive storage hunting. This is the basis of Storage Wars, a show that documents a group of people as they make their living off of the contents discovered in abandoned storage lockers. Although these auctions are competitive and there is no guarantee that units hold anything of value, these treasure hunters keep coming back for the chance to find something rare hidden among all the junk. After a few episodes you’ll be left intrigued by the items that are uncovered and the people who are determined to find them. Catch a marathon of the original series this Sunday starting at 7 PM on A&E and check out spin offs including Storage Wars Texas and Storage Wars New York and similar shows Storage Hunters, Auction Hunters and Auction Kings.
