Vampire Hunting Kit/Meteorite Oct 27, 2010 One seller comes into Gallery 63 with a softball-sized meteorite, hoping to fetch enough money to take a second honeymoon to Paris, while another brings in a vampire-killing kit from the 1800s that could go for big bucks — if the right buyer attends the auction.

But will experts confirm they're legit?

Love Meter/Knights of the Templar Sword Oct 27, 2010 Delfino's handyman skills are put to the test when picker Jon uncovers a classic "Love Meter" arcade game.

It could bring in $5,000 to $7,000 if the right bidders are in the crowd on auction day, and all proceeds would benefit the homeless.
