Also Pucci I hope has been on your radar, Ferragamo, Chanel, etc... when you cross paths with a truly nice piece of silk you'll know it. And if it's a sought after Parisian or Italian design house, you get it too. I've found nice ones from sorta-slightly lesser known labels like Balenciaga, Bally, Iceberg, Gianfranco Ferre, etc.. quality print or quality name you'll know it, just hope it's on the same piece of high quality silk.

Edit: Also look out for equestrian themed ones, if you spot some equestrian themed silk, whether it's a tie or a 40x40 piece of fabric, it's probably worth something, Equestrian themed ones do well, of course they do much better when this theme is printed on high quality silk, and a designer name helps a ton also.

Edit #2: Have an RN lookup website saved in your phones web browser, because sometimes the tags are removed but the small 100% Silk , Made in ___ and an RN # tag are still attached. I think it was my huge burberry one was proven to be so using this method. I could tell it was obviously Burberry but they don't label their scarfs on the silk itself, so other measures were taken to verify.

Thanks for all the info!

Thank you for sending me back for the skeets. I listed one as a test. It lasted less than 3 hours.

Ok, so they have to say limited edition on them? The most I have sold on of those for was $79. But, I don't think it said Limited Edition. Between this and the snow beach jacket, I feel like I need to go to every thrift and skim through every rack just looking for old polo and ugly print RG!

Polo bear is the only reason I sometimes dive into the t shirt rack

Hello - new poster here.  Over the last several weeks, I have gone through the whole Part II thread.   Feeling quite envious - I'm in a small metro area in the midwest and never see most of the brands mentioned here in stores let alone in our thrift stores - it is a big find to see a BB shirt where I am at :D.   

 

I'm going to be in Chicago area next week and will have some time to kill in between some meetings.  Wondering if any SF members would be nice enough to share any locations where I would have a higher probability of finding quality business basic clothing items (shirts, ties, suits/coats).  I will be in west and north burbs as well as downtown.

 

I'm not trying to steal anyone's spot or hoard a bunch of items for resale.  Just looking for places where I might be able to find items in my size while I am in the area.

 

If you would prefer to PM me that would be great!   Thanks for any advice in advance...

Sup Crüe. Took a break from unpacking at the new place.





I've got a couple packages to send out, and once I find them I'll get them out to you guys.

A trip to my grandmothers yesterday meant a quick run to a small store in her neighborhood. Just a couple of ties.

Colorful blankets, especially any of the "Indian blanket" designs - okay, basically anything that isn't a solid color - are worth picking up to flip. (And yes, Pendleton does (or has) make solid-color wool blankets. I carry one in my van for when I'm stuck at the kids' co-op and I need a nap.)  Throws are worth picking up, IMO, if they're under $10 and in excellent condition; ponchos are like grail finds.  Other Pendleton items have really never moved for me, although there are vintage jackets that do well. In my area, vaguely vintage Pendleton plaid items are pretty much everywhere in the thrifts, and I leave them where they hang.

 

Exception: jackets and coats made from their blanket fabric. Also purses, bags, and totes. Always worth grabbing.

 

Some of their Indian or historic/re-issue blankets are so gorgeous, you could be tempted to go out in public just wrapped in one. Okay, not exactly stylish, but you'd get all kinds of attention, and I bet most of it would still be positive (until the police showed up).
