I spent £500 buying a storage unit from 1990 – a necklace I uncovered inside is worth thousands, I'll make a tidy profit | The Sun

A MAN who buys abandoned storage units looks set to make a huge profit from one he nabbed for £500.

Daniel took to his TikTok page to share a look at the unit, which hadn't been opened since 1990, before revealing some of the treasures he'd found inside.

"Storage unit that’s been sealed since 1990. Paid $660 (£536)," he wrote.

As he zoomed in on the unit, countless cardboard boxes could be seen, as well as a barrel of some sort, a stool, a ladder and numerous plastic bags full of bits and pieces.

Daniel then lay out some of the best finds from the unit, including a huge crystal, several art prints and an album of baseball cards.

He also found a huge pile of jewellery, including a gold watch and a coveted 'squash blossom' necklace in the first unit – one of two he'd purchased from 1990.

People were quick to comment on the video, insisting Daniel could easily get back the cost of the unit just by selling the necklace.

"The squash blossom alone is worth more than a grand if it's sterling silver an has the artist signature," one wrote.

"That squash blossom turquoise necklace will cover the price of that one unit. Maybe both!" another added.

While someone else commented: "The necklace is worth thousands!!"

"The squash blossom paid for both units," another comment read.

While another woman wrote: "Omg the SQUASH BLOSSOM!!! I would sob."

And that wasn't the only potentially valuable piece he came across.

"that crystal is probably worth 3 grand," someone else advised.

"Oh wow, really?" Daniel responded.

"yeah find out which one it is, some of them are crazy expensive," the person replied.

Others weren't convinced the unit was worth Daniel's time.

"As someone who grew up with horders like this, it looks like a whole lotta somethin and a whole lotta nothin," one wrote.
