If it's just too bad, cut your losses. Er. Bait.

 

This is not the first time I have heard something like this here.  Do the thrifts (particularly the chains,) go through the clothing and remove damaged items by you?  Here in DFW I would venture to say that only the one or two higher end private thrifts do this and of course they are charging a higher price.  I would venture to say that many, if not most of the items I see on a daily basis are damaged beyond everyday wear to include holes, tears, serious stains, etc.  Hell, I probably leave ten times more sweaters than I buy because of moth holes.  Just curious to see what it is like in other places.

Woofa, they are supposed to. It's Goodwill store policy to not sell damaged clothing, but that's bullshit, obviously just based on the sheer quantity of damaged clothing I find on the floor. If you take a piece to the person at the counter and tell them that it's damaged, they'll say "Oh how did that get out here, we're not supposed to sell them when they're like that. I'll take it to the back", but when you come back a few days later it's still out.

Dang, a lot of Raider hate in here. I've been a legit fan for a long time but I'll admit there are some fans who are embarrassing just like any team.

 

Quick question for the lawyer friends in here. Our complex got a new landlord who came in to do a clean sweep from all the shady stuff the previous landlord was doing. He evicted a ton of people and we somehow got sucked into the mess. He changed our locks and we couldn't get in for a few days until everything was sorted out. He offered to do a pro rated rate for the next months rent. Should I be asking for more or take this to court? Was crazy frustrating since we didn't do anything wrong and had all our records/payments to prove it. 

 

We can take this to PM if anyone is willing to throw some advice my way.

 

Sorry for being off topic!

 

Promise to post some finds I had stashed in my trunk lol

edit: not a lawyer, just my average-joe opinion.

Pro-rating for the days you couldn't access your place is just compensation for a product/service you didn't get. If I were in your shoes, I'd argue I deserved more for the hassle and pain of having to deal with it. I'd probably start at a month free and negotiate from there. Would not go to court.

i've noticed these custom jackets come up on the thread from time to time. i consigned an Astor & Black suit made for Steph "Babyface Assassin" Curry with a very legit sports auction house a few weeks after he won league MVP and a ring. while it did fine and i'm not complaining at all, it showed me just how little headroom there is for things like this. plus a lot of these guys have inhuman measurements (Curry is about a 38L with surprisingly short arms btw), so the market can be kinda narrow. i would pass unless it was something remarkable, and even with the Curry thing i basically had to sell the shit out of it to my consignor. 

I have to disagree with you. While the sizing can sometimes be really unusual, I have done really well with athletes items. I recently purchased a bunch of Brian Cushings Suits/Sport Coats and killed it. Hes just an over hyped LB.

I made about 10x per item, about the same that I would make for a high end suit selling on my site. Out of the 10-15 items, I only have 2 left!

Oh, I would love to have seen Currys suit:nodding:

^ do you find camelbaks at thrift stores? I love mine and fancy buying a bigger version for my commuting runs but never see that stuff. Not sure I'd like using a second hand drinking tube, wearing old shoes is enough for me!

Yes, yes I do. I found all three of those yesterday, and have found about 6-8 in the past month.

Mostly coming from me. I think I am still a little butt hurt over my Cowboys who have been a real let down this year! I'll start drinking something else other than the haterade. My bad..

Hey man, Raiders have been in a long enough drought. This seasons success is very refreshing!
