Buy your neighbor’s abandoned stuff

While running out for lunch today – where I had TacoSoylent Bell for the first time in years and remembered why I don’t eat there – I heard a brief bit on the Kojo Nnamdi show about MD’s abandoned property program. Like all states, MD has to deal with abandoned accounts and physical property in some way. They ceased doing auctions on the courthouse steps – which comptroller Peter Franchot says had poor turnout – and switched to Ebay. You can see the various things up for auction that people have left in safety deposit boxes here.

None of it really blows my skirt up personally but it looks like there might be some decent deals.
