The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 1965post #29461 of 550582/10/16 at 6:45pmpost #29462 of 550582/10/16 at 7:06pmI've been fortunate to have witnessed pure aggressive greediness in full force only once. At opening, couple guys run to the suit racks and literally empty the suit racks, taking suits from the racks by the handful and throw them into the cart. I was speechless.
Minnesota is pretty passive-aggressive. I've had my run-ins where I've had to step it up a notch, but mostly folks just grunt at each other or sigh really loudly in frustration. We have rack vultures too though and they seem to get worse and worse by the day. LA is the worst I've seen. I've seen fist-fights break out there.
A new bin of records was sitting out like someone had just picked through it. Found this guy and thought "Haha, whoever picked through this wasn't thorough enough".
Then noticed it felt a little light....
Jokes on me. Pristine cover and inner sleeve (not a corner ding on the cover, nor a seam split on the sleeve) with no vinyl!
Went through every LP in the box looking for it. No such luck. My guess in a worker in the back wanted it, but since they can't buy it until their shift is over and it hits the floor, they snuck the record out and hid it. They've been known to do that with shoes at that particular store (hide the mate somewhere until their shift is over).post #29463 of 550582/10/16 at 7:10pmQuote:
Bape always have these Nowhere Co. Ltd. company address and phone numbers on them. Actually, all the Japanese pieces I've handled all have either phone numbers, address, or at least their company logo.
Also, compare the outline of the ape to this tag. Noticed the difference? That's another quick and dirty way to tell if it's real when in the field. But the new AAPE stuff no longer belongs to Nowhere. I think it's tagged IT? Not sure. I always pass on those. Found a pair of selvedge once but it was AAPE and not OG Bape. Pass unless that was a mistake...Quote:Originally Posted by Spruce Moose

Pass. I might pick it up for $5. But prolly will pass.
Oh yeah, not LVC.post #29464 of 550582/10/16 at 7:13pmpost #29465 of 550582/10/16 at 7:14pmQuote:ShunOriginally Posted by Takai
Question for the Cooks, and Chefs here; Im looking at picking up a custom, or "Custom" Paring knife. Main trio of knives I find myself using these days are a very vintage(50s/60s era) Chicago Cutlery Slicer, a Henckel Twin four star II Santoku, and a Twin four star II Pairing knife. Gradually I am going to attempt to replace these with much nicer versions from various places. I was looking at kopping a Carter Muteki Paring/petty, and I keep trying to talk myself out of it, but really havent seen anything that draws me quite as much.
tl:dr- Anyone have any suggestions on great paring/petty knives for ~150-300 shipped range?post #29466 of 550582/10/16 at 7:24pmpost #29467 of 550582/10/16 at 7:26pmpost #29468 of 550582/10/16 at 7:27pm

It is against GW company policy to set aside items for a particular customer. So if that rack of hold items was there, they are violating GW policy. I know of two people in my area who have been fired from GW for this, and there was no $$$ exchanged as far as I know. The GW's around me will not let you pick a rolled out rack, you have to wait until they put it on main racks, the reason being is that everyone is supposed to have a fair chance at it. I also know people who have been banned for picking racks or bins before they were unloaded.
Well it's not company policy, seemingly store policies in your area though. Goodwill the company, essentially franchises locations to private owners who operate under their name. However to operate under their name, there are a few company mandates all locations must comply with, and these rules like never giving deals or discounts at the register that aren't part of a promoted sale, or everything is priced as is, no exceptions, no holding etc.. are actually all in order to maintain their Brand Image, that is being the store that caters to, and cares most about, the less fortunate. So I guess they would be the exception to the rule, because it's a waste of time and resources to have a preferred client list when your best customers are the poorest people...and us.. However the back door of Goodwill and the front operate in two totally different manners. The backdoor business conforms with a classic retail strategy but that's a whole other thing..

I completely understand this, and its actually the thing that is most holding me back from ordering the Carter right now. I have no idea how it will feel, before I throw down.post #29470 of 550582/10/16 at 7:32pmpost #29471 of 550582/10/16 at 7:34pmpost #29472 of 550582/10/16 at 7:41pm
Yes the tag is legit, as is the tie. I am not familiar with that little attached black rectangular tag though, but with it looking like some sort of reference number and the first two letters being CA, I'm going to safely assume this is in reference to your country and added to their imports there.Originally Posted by Nataku

I went out looking for more Laura Piano today. Didn't find her, but found a few of her Italian cousins. I am hoping these are all SCs. I didn't find pants and was there until the warehouse staff left.
