One man’s forgotten stuff is another man’s treasure.
Especially when the man’s forgotten loot is Mark Wahlberg.
A friend of “Storage Wars” star Rene Nezhoda apparently came across the treasure trove by chance. Nezhoda’s friend spent $3,000 on three storage locker units at a facility in San Fernando Valley a few weeks ago. When he inspected the contents he discovered he had actually stumbled upon a wealth of Mark Wahlberg’s personal items for early in his career.
Among the items were some of Wahlberg’s old pieces of furniture, family photos, trophies, mementos from when he was rapping as Marky Mark and filming of the 1997 movie “Boogie Nights”. Most of the items went up for grabs with the actors blessing. Some of the personal items, however, were returned to the actor rather than selling them off.
It is amazing some of the stuff you can find with a self-storage auction. Just imagine, opening the door your next unit, peeling removing the tape and opening a box to discover some lost movie memorabilia.
