Treasures hidden all over the metro, some worth thousands of dollars. That's how a growing number of Oklahomans view storage units.
When people don't pay their monthly rent on a locker, places like Mid-America Self Storage in Edmond can auction off the contents.
"It is fun, it's a gamble. You never know," one anxious bidder said.
Oklahomans line up for a quick peek inside then the war begins. The highest bidder takes home everything inside. Some people are looking for antiques, others for big ticket items to resale.
A winning bidder said, "I can probably sell that couch and loveseat for about 200-bucks. Microwave for maybe $25."
Sometimes they own a new pile of junk.
"Bought a unit full of green garbage bags and they were all styrofoam blocks in it," One bidder said.
It's an addiction catching on across Oklahoma.
