The Treasures and Trash of Miami
Miami was wilder than the first time we came … I guess they advertised it a whole lot. I could not believe my eyes when I saw this fantastic bronze among all the lost and unclaimed baggage. This I had to go for, regardless of cost. Most of the folks in Miami are after the jewelry, so I thought maybe it would go under the radar. I always love to bid on baggage because of the unknown factor; I guess it’s the gambler in me. My strategy was to make a deal after the auction with all the baggage that did not sell but unfortunately I ran out of time and money. I did buy one bag and it was a rude awakening to this business of buying baggage at these airport auctions. It was by far the most unsanitary bag in my career. I’m not sure America wants to see that one. They would have to put an X-rating on the show.
