Side note - wait for the right buyer.... listed since FEB!!! but finally sold at the BIN price :D

CANALI Brown Multi Color KICK ASS Flat Front Casual Dress Corduroy Pants 34 x 30

I love those pants. I looked at them a dozen times.  If they were my size, I would have wanted them.

The one I have is a solid dark red probably dating back to the 70's. 

 

I've had a run of ties that looked good in the store, but under the photo light I can see a single pulled thread missing or the remnant of a stain I never saw before. I have a stefano ricci, a hermes and a bb makers all with a single thread gone. 

 

Drives me nuts. I need to buy one of those portable lights that CSI use, but I'd be afraid of what other "biologicals" I might notice if I did.

I personally do adhere to seasonal clothes. Part of it is to get the highest amount and part of it is to maintain a coherence in my store. I sell both new and used items and keep it seasonal, including sales. That's just my own policy though, I can see why others would opt to list all year. I have a few summer items hanging around that will be pulled and stored until they get renewed interest in the spring.

It can be expensive to do that, both in space and tying up money in stock, which is why I attempt to be conservative in purchases. Retail locations start early fall merchandise in late summer (early August), so I attempt to be about a month later than them. Stores move their summer stuff out, but people still look for it, which is where I come in to the equation. By now, I should have pulled all summer gear and moved into fall and winter. I will keep that going until the first week of March when I introduce some spring stuff. By mid-April, I'll have 90% of my store with spring/summer and the remainder is heavily discounted winter stuff.

This way, my attempt is to attract a wide audience...bargain hunters, those going on holiday before/after summer, those trying to find things at the "proper" start of a season (read: those willing to pay for items relevant to the weather), etc. My goal is to have minimal things to re-list, but a jump-start on the season in a few months.

First I'd say YIKES on the pattern. As to the label, no, I believe the 'good' Lanvin always has the lady in it, like:



Although I'm not familiar with Lanvin Boutique, so maybe that was a separate line of notably better quality.

Nope... 99.5% of the time, the Lanvin you find isn't going to be the good Lanvin. Think of it like old Christian Dior and Dior. There's a crap ton of the former out there, and very little of the latter. The former is usually dated in style/material, and the latter is very up to date if not fashion forward.

Ya not the best looking but it was a $1 so I thought it was worth the gamble! I figured since it was made in Italy, it may be the good lanvin

Eh for a buck why the hell not haha. The unseen price of admission into this black art of thrifting. I don't even want to think how much I spent on passable stuff in the beginning.

I think your best bet is to get that thing listed and promise delivery before Halloween!

I won't post new stuff out of season, I'm so backlogged, I can ignore out of season stuff and get in season listed. But stuff that's already GTC will not be taken down because it is out of season.

For example, as I was writing this, I noticed I sold a pair of Tommy B. shorts.

Is 336 views and 40 watchers good? How about with 5 days to go?


How bout the rest of you guys... how many views you usually get on some of your high end items?
