So just walk out the front doors to the mall and enjoy the world of Kiton, Ricci, Ford, Piana etc.

Have a great trip.

Is this a superstition?? I do this but just because my momma raised me right (for the most part). However, if the store uses those clip type hangers and one clip is still desperately hanging onto the item as it dangles, that shit is getting sandwiched between the other items on the rack with a quickness.

I think the thread constantly needs fresh faces to thrive, otherwise we'd get into a rut.

As someone who is back from the dead on the forum I like the fresh faces and finds on here.   I still have about 2000 posts to get caught up on.

Sup crew! I just got back from spending the week in the north woods of Wisconsin for some much needed R&R. Going through some serious thrifting withdrawal, hahaha. I hope you all had a wonderful 4th!

I always do this too. I think it makes up for the people who trash the store with no regard for the employees.

I was just sensing the thread going more toward the subject of flipping, reselling, thrifting strategy, etc and that usually is followed by a conversation about this

It ebbs and flows.  I've never been bothered by flip talk, as long as the core subject is the love of the game.  I don't know of anyone here that wears Robert Graham, but we post anyways, and it's all good, because it funds the addiction.  Love the killer audio gear, furniture and art posts too.

Yep knowledge is power in this game.  Having a healthy knowledge of many different things in the thrift arena can turn a thrift trip from a 0 to salvageable.  

 

We purchased a new home this winter, went from 1200 sq ft to 3500 sq ft.  So we needed a ton of furniture.   I got many of my nicest pieces at Salvation Army.   Hancock and Moore leather chairs, Mitchell and Gold Leather chair, etc. 

 

Its ok to focus just on high quality men's clothing but knowing a good bit about art, kitchen goods, furniture, audio equipment can really turn a waste of time into some $$$ or an amazing piece for your home. 

 

I know over the last couple years we have built up about 12 pieces of Le Creuset for our kitchen at thrift prices.

Was in the poker room at my local establishment Saturday night, I counted at least 4 RG shirts...I've located the market!
