But if he does you pack your bags shut up and never post here again.
i wasnt gonna comment on your morning LV brag but since you like a good shit on parade.
You basically bragged that you paid OVER asking.you.OVER.PAID.
For what a dingy 80's garment bag.
Now im gonna guess they were asking a certain number.you must have doubled it or tripled even.you wanna know why they accepted,because they saw a sucker from a mile away.
Ive been to estate sales.i know the pricing i know the drill.
Now i know youre gonna try to puff out your chest at me and come at me hatd.dont.

no pressure @brianpore

When you find out that all that awesome shit in the photos is going on display this weekend you get pumped. When you find out this weekend is by appointment only and is booked solid and reserved strictly for high end collectors and their best personal clients, you get bummed. Knowing the good shit will be gone when it's open to public next weekend leaves you with no option but to get in there this weekend somehow. Judging by inventory, you conclude Barneys reps are involved, you text the barneys rep whose number you have to confirm. Confirmed. You then tell them to tell the owner of the item you want, you'll pay over asking via paypal transfer site unseen immediately if they will sell it to you that day. You pay and you pick the item up that night. And that's how you get shit done, and fuck over a shit load of appointment making, eager collectors and buyers in the process. Sorry but I'm not sorry. 

 

Vtg 1980s Giant LV Garment/Travel Bag. Excellent Vintage condition. some superficial marks and the tan leather definitely needs a cleaning, but no staining and just natural leather patina, no distressing. Most notably and important however, every single piece of hardware, zipper toggle, rivet clasp, handle, clip, are all pristine and attached. Not bad a bad pickup for Thursday night past 9 oclock.

 

 

Interesting...though seems counter-intuitive to over-pay, unless it was a must-have personal grail item, or the sellers had it under-priced to begin with.  

 

I've been to estate sales on day 1 at full-price, and days 3/4/5 at 75% off, and have found stuff worth buying at both ends, so you never know.  Last few sales, I only made the last day and found minty Hermes & RLPL at 75% off (original prices were going rate), Hartmann NOS, minty Barbour etc.  No idea how these things make it to 75% off but those are the scores that get my heart pumping.

You're still confused, you're going to refer to yourself in the second person from now on to make things simpler.

I thought it was quite fitting when I saw this beauty sitting there as I was walking out of the shop with the jacket. May thrift fund something similar soon :smarmy:
