I didn't. I always pass on size 9 Lacoste. I guess I won't be passing on vintage wash any size in the future.

I'll try to play, if I can get out to the thrifts. Given the amount of stuff I have stockpiled that I need to list, my wife may look askance at me if I try. rolleyes.gif

Man saw that your wife questions your valuable stockpile. Mine does the same and has me making financial reports if I buy polo shirt to sell!

Same boat here. I started looking at the sales prices of the jade Anchor Hocking Fire whatever it's called, because I recognized it from stores in the area, and my wife (almost) literally materialized behind me and stated in no uncertain terms that I am not going to start purchasing housewares.

Hopefully her mind will change once I get rid of the stockpile.

Just keep a log when you list an item for sale to record your purchase price the record sales price and show her the profit. She will then have a discussion about Ebay value fees...! Then buy lots and lots of roses for her....that always works for me.

It's the only way. It keeps her off my case and gives me the rest I need to keep going. We are going on our 3rd thrift paid cruise in the Spring. Belize here we come!

That would work if I wasn't too lazy to actually list the stuff I've found.

I find myself in this predicament as well. Yesterday my sons bullied me into creating a spreadsheet with every shirt I have to sell and they sat there for 3 hours helping me measure all of them and enter it in the spreadsheet. We plan on doing ties and pants tonight, than shoes and jackets tomorrow *. Then I will create a template for each category and let them create new listings for all of the items using Garage Sale. You just have to do it or box it off and ship it to a consignor. I am hoping to be ready by Sunday to use my 50 free listings.
