I don't really know watches either. I feel like I've seen modern Seamasters like that go for anywhere from 1000-3000 bucks, and I don't know enough about the nuances that make one more valuable than the other. Plus I am super happy with my $100 Orient Ray...hahapost #27996 of 550501/28/16 at 7:50amQuote:
St. John. I can't figure it out for nothin. I know there are some pieces that do very well, but I've picked up some really cool looking pieces that I was sure would bring in $$$ and they sold for peanuts. Stopped picking that stuff up.post #27997 of 550501/28/16 at 7:50ampost #27998 of 550501/28/16 at 7:51ampost #27999 of 550501/28/16 at 7:53am
Shell Cordovan horse. No cracking or creasing. Rolls.
Not really the best pictures close up but you might get the point.
Good close up. See how it won't crease or crack?post #28000 of 550501/28/16 at 8:22amQuote:Originally Posted by Nataku
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)A month or so ago I was the first to a "New Arrival" cart at one of the Goodwill stores on my route. I found a new-in-the-box Willow Tree Nativity Set. My wife has been after one of these for a long time and always tells me to keep an eye out. This was marked at $5. I grab it and put it in my cart. I call my wife to tell her the good news and she is thrilled. I see the manager walk by so I ask her "I found this Willow Tree Nativity Set on the last cart that came out. Is there a way you can check in back and see if there are any more Willow Tree things that will be coming out?" She then snatches it from my cart and says "Oh! That's not supposed to be out there! That was supposed to go to our e-commerce site.". She then takes it away into the back room. I was so shocked by what happened I was pretty much speechless. 15 minutes later, she says "I know you wanted it so I put it up in the case if you still want it".They repriced it at $50.Quote:
Gouging is different. It's increasing the price because demand has spiked because a critical commodity has become temporarily rare, usually as a result of a natural disaster. Think gas or tree removal services in the aftermath of a storm.
However, this does violate at several handfulls of common law and consumer protection laws. It's very, very, very impermissible, and I would very, very, very much have called them on it.
Footnote: I've also been very, very, very unsuccessful in achieving a positive outcome by doing so. Other than venting my own anger and making a scene.post #28001 of 550501/28/16 at 8:37ampost #28002 of 550501/28/16 at 8:37ampost #28003 of 550501/28/16 at 8:39amQuote:
I saw one once in someone else's cart, but it stung less because from the size of it, it was a woman's small or kids.Quote:
It most likely is a reasonable amount; depending on condition and the features. I would spend a lot of time on the watch forums reading up on the watches before you make a purchase. Similar to clothes in this forum, there are lots of details that make the difference in watches. Omega makes a variety of watches, from $1500 quartz versions to $700,000 diamond covered ones; the second hand market varies just as widely as well. The number of complications, if it's automatic vs wind, open case vs closed all are major factors.
That being said, I'd most likely pass on that watch...at that price you're getting into the used Speedy price range; a far more better looking watch in my opinion.post #28004 of 550501/28/16 at 9:16ampost #28005 of 550501/28/16 at 9:19amQuote:Originally Posted by Chotii
Good luck with that one. I have not found a decent secondary market for Escada, which I think of as high couture for frumpy, snooty old ladies, but if the price were low enough and it NWT, I'd put a happy price on it and let it sit. There are still frumpy, snooty old ladies out there. ;)
It was very cheap. I bought it with eyes wide open regarding its potential value. I think it is an all or nothing sort of thing. It will either do REALLY well or it won't be worth crap!
Speaking of clothing for snooty old ladies, I just went to an estate sale and there were TONS of women's clothes by Carlisle . . .
Flip talkBut, the Carlisle stuff is like a lot of old lady stuff. Its expensive at retail, but I haven't seen any evidence that is worth trying to flip for any real profit. Anyone have experience with it? It looks like nice stuff (for rich old ladies) and it is similar to St. John, but obviously not as high and St. John still have good resale value.
