With the economy in the crapper, even those people who do not enjoy exploring Goodwill or trolling for red clearance stickers at Target are much more willing to seek out a bargain.
There is an online auction site (similar to eBay or Amazon) that is run by the Police. That’s right…. The men in blue, the coppers, the Po-Po.
Propertyroom.com is run by an alliance of police departments across the country. They auction off items seized in raids, property that has been forfeited, and stolen property that could not be reunited with the rightful owners for some reason.
Now before you say, “Thanks, but I already have all the grow lights I need.” you should know there are all kinds of items. From jewelry, to tractors, to baseball equipment to plumbing fixtures. All items are examined and appraised, and they have a “no fraud” guarantee. (I feel safe buying from the police…)
Proceeds from the auctions get funneled back in order to help law enforcement. Sounds like a win-win situation to me.
