The owner of a storage place is found by Jen's deduction, murdered. Jen saw an upset ex customer there earlier and the owner mentioned divorce. Is the break-in at Jen and Dany's store related? Dany meets a new guy.
Jennifer Shannon (Lori Loughlin) has a gift for finding rare treasures hidden in garage sales that she can resell at her consignment store, Rags to Riches. But her keen eye for finding valuables also gets her involved in the criminal investigations that happen at the very second-hand sales she frequents. When Jennifer's friend and self-storage facility owner Martin (Michael Kopsa) turns up murdered-just hours after auctioning off an abandoned storage unit full of unique items to Jennifer-she is immediately pulled on the case as a key eyewitness. Working with Detective Lynwood (Kevin O'Grady), Jennifer helps single out a disgruntled customer as the prime suspect, while she and her business partner, Danielle (Strange), sift through boxes from the auction. As her husband Jason (Bacic) worries about her safety, Jennifer starts to get over her head when there is a break-in at her store, and a run-in with Martin's angry wife. Then, Jennifer and Danielle discover their new merchandise ...Written by

When Detective Lynwood opens the storage locker, containing the body, the head and shoulders of a film crew member, although out of focus, can be seen on the right hand side coming between the camera and the opening roller door. See more »
Lori Loughlin, Sarah Strange, and Steve Bacic star in Garage Sale Mysteries: All That Glitters.
The show opens in 2009 with a jewelry store robbery of diamonds by two people pretending to shop for an engagement ring like Kate Middleton's, except she wasn't engaged yet. I don't know - I'm a writer and I have to look up things all the time. You'd think someone would have verified that.
Anyway, we fast forward five years later when Jennifer and Danielle (Loughlin and Strange) are shopping for collectibles and antiques for their store. Then they venture into bidding on storage units and win one. Then the owner of the storage place is killed, after Jennifer overhears an argument between him and a man. Their shop is burgled of costume jewelry. You begin to get the picture.
I liked this. It moved at a good pace, I loved seeing all the antiques and collectibles, and the acting was okay. It sure beats Mystery Woman or Jane Doe, both of which move much more slowly. Looking forward to seeing more.
