Is that possible - is someone counterfeiting RL made in Italy shoes, with boxes and dust bags?  Stamps are all very clear, construction appears nice - nothing is sloppy etc.  Would be a surprise to me if they were fakes, but, maybe someone knows.

hmmm. 10.5 D. Normally I'm an 11D. How do those run? for example, I'm wearing a pair of ferragamo horse bits right now that are 10.5D and a bit loose. 

 

(see, I'm confident enough that they're real, I'm contemplating a bid).

^Didn't some have a bit of damage, or were those others?

Anyway, I still believe it was the right move. You had no idea whether you would want to continue, invest in the equipment, etc. There will always be other opportunities/deals to be had.

One had slight damage that I sold to a SF member.

The others were good. But yes you're right.

Its Ok to pass if you don't want to drop cash like that on your first go round. Its errors and second thoughts like these that keep you hunting. I have passed on brands that later I see in here that go for boatloads. It all a part of the learning process. Wes has been my model. I truly need to learn more and get my pics up to par as well as my consistency.

It's best to keep a credit card on hand for these scenarios. If I'm at an outlet and see something expensive that might flip, I'll throw it on my amex and just return it within 30 days if it doesn't flip. I closed all my credit cards years ago, but my fiance added me to her amex for this purpose alone. It's a huge advantage and something to consider if you plan on flipping NWT items from outlets.

This...I am just speaking from the thrift stores. Here in Atlanta not many if any allow returns, so I have to be 100% sure on items over thrift prices.

Interesting thing. Listed an RMFB Goretex jacket a little while back. $150 starting bid, no reserve. Didn't get any bids. Relisted the day it ended with $300 BIN and offers accepted. Just sold it for $200.

It be that way sometimes. I noticed that when I do second chance offers they never accept. But if I relist I sell for more. I ain't mad.
