There are always a few gems at liquidation sales...I go every once in a while to try and find good deals too.

I went once - $8 to park, $5 to get in, and I found nothing but junk that wasn't even priced low. The 1,000 commercials on the radio made it sound like you could get stuff cheap - I went for a lap top and they were the same prices as Best Buy or Walmart, but the boxes looked like that had been dragged down the street. Never will I waist my time again!!! The kicker was right when you walked in there was this huge booth selling "solid 14K gold" chains for next to nothing. They HAD to be fake I'm talking a chain that would sell for $2000 was like $50 and when you picked it up it was as light as a feather. I asked the guy if they were hollow and he chuckled and said - read the sign these are solid gold chains. I lost all respect for that convention center for letting them crooks in to take advantage of people.

i seen the same thing with the boxes and stuff i asked about them they informed me that they were slightly damaged goods but every now and again there are some actual good electronics the one we had, had what looked to be like 10 year old computers and there ipods were made by a brand yakishira or something like that. they had a sign on the window sorry for the inconvienace but our truck carrying the ipods ps3s ipads and real name brand stuff had gotten into a wreck which i know had to be made up cause there werent any semi wrecks that weekend it would have been on the news or blasting over my police and fire fighter scanner radio but the car audio was real i ahd them checked out before i baught them

That sucks lol. The ones I have been too cost $5 to get in with no parking fee and usually have good deals the first day and the rest of the days are the junk products. The good stuff goes fast in my experience.
