It's key to factor in time spent, whether it's actual working on the posting, or waiting for it to sell, either way that's your money making no money and your time is worth more than the time it would take in total from point of purchaseto fiinal sale on the other site..

Mines close.... it was before my true selling days and back in the casual selling stuff days to feed my denim addiction, I just wanted a quick few hundred so instead of holding on to them like I i knew i should have I just said fuck it and sold my deadstock first edition release of the white/pinnk Ice Creams, every item that came in the box was mint and still packaged, box was fucking prisitne condition as well, shoes were never even tried on and I settled for a few hundred instead of just tossing them in the back of my closet and waiting a few years.

 

EDIT: Researching them now is even more depressing. Not only is there no pairs for sale on ebay, but I literally can't even find a picture of them on google. They weren't the bullshit huge diamond reeboks that are like 6 bills, they were the diamond ice cream cones.....fuck me

Sold all three in less than 5 min. baldy[1].gif I guess they were priced to low

What have yall regretted selling?

 

 

The only thing I sort of regret selling was my fixie (a converted Bianchi San Jose). I bought it new in 2006, and sold it last fall. I sold it for about $100 less than I paid for it. Man, did that bike get some miles...

 

 

But thrifting stuff? I really have no regrets. I probably don't look at clothing the way most of y'all do. I'll wear something for a few weeks or months and then sell it if it appeals to me at all. I like having a constant stream of things to check out.

I was very close to passing on a 2003 14 MIL Zegna sport coat last year because it was too big for $15 but @Jompso slapped some sense into to me before I did that. 

I grabbed those Indians.kept one for myself.

I was off on the details a little. It was a 2004 piece and 15 Mil and you gave me a run down on it because I was shocked at how soft it was although I can't find that pm

Thrifted items I regret selling? I have a few..... laugh.gif

Most notable clothing finds that I regret selling are a RLPL blackwatch plaid pure cashmere SC and a RLPL wool/cashmere down puffer coat. Both my size. Both bought for peanuts and both sold for peanuts.



Other thrifted items that I am still kicking myself for selling:

That Polo bear might actually be the greatest sweater of all time. Is there a name for that piece so I can try to find one?

 

You thrifted a Snap-On chest? Wow

It was pure cashmere to boot. Never seen another. There's a long story behind that one.....

Yep. Put all my tools inside when I got home and filled it up about 1/4 of the way. Figured I'd sell it to someone who had more tools that could get some use out of it. Now I have the tools to fill it and it's long since been sold.

My Google skills led me to Polo Downtown Bear. Looks like it was used in some sort of hiphop video lol
