For some people on the planet, there are few activities more rewarding than bargain hunting. Dan Dotson can certainly attest to this, as he and his wife, Laura, have auctioned off a number of different items throughout the years. However, in November 2018 the auctioneer shared an incredible story about a man who bought a storage unit for $500.
Born in November 1962, Dan took a real interest in auctioneering as a youngster. And this curiosity was stoked by Sam Fancher, his granddad, who operated out of Arkansas. Following some work as an apprentice in the 1940s, Fancher eventually became an auctioneer himself, specializing in farms and livestock.
As a result, Fancher began to impart some of this wisdom to his grandson. Dan was undoubtedly encouraged by this input, and ultimately, this wealth of knowledge inspired him to make a big decision. Indeed, during his summer breaks from high school, the boy worked alongside his grandparent in Arkansas, picking up some valuable experience. This growing passion wasn’t curbed when school started back up again, however.
