For some people, there are few activities more rewarding than bargain hunting. Dan Dotson can certainly attest to that, 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 of 1962, Dan took a real interest in auctioneering as a youngster. And that 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 that wisdom to his grandson, which inspired Dan to make a big decision. Indeed, during his summer breaks from high school, he worked alongside his grandparent in Arkansas, picking up some important experience. However, that growing passion wasn’t curbed when school started back up again.
