  • 150 pairs
  • $20 average profit per pair
  • $3000

 

Not insane.

 

Just Economics 101.

Not that it happens all that often but finding stuff like this at a goodwill never ceases to amaze me.

Also found a brown label canali suit. Both were sitting there on the newly rolled out rack just waiting for me.... And on top of everything they both fit just about perfect!!! Also the zegna is even trofeo and in a good pattern! Fun stop in kc!!

Quick fit pic of the trofeo...
 

Ones that fit are the best kind.  Making a little $ is nice, but having baller clothes is the best.

That is very, very cool.

 

 

My sneakerthriftening for a size 13.  All new or close to it.

A preview of the cart, they're mostly collabs, all the new balance are USA made.  Didn't take a lot of research to know I needed to grab a cart.

so i know nothing about guitar amps, but remember someone posted an old fender (?) amp up a bit ago and it was a thing. so, just cleaned out storage locker of a moved out tenant in a building I manage. tenant moved out end of May, was payed up until end of July. emailed him about stuff he left behind in apartment and said throw it away, he took everything he wanted. have a new tenant moving in on 15th, finally got around to storage locker in basement. found this, and know nothing about it except it powers on, and there is one on the other site going for $350. anyone have info?

I've never seen the "Les Paul" designation but it looks like a late 50s GA-5 to me... you can tell it's low-wattage and a simple circuit since there's just the one volume knob and no tone stack or trem or anything, 3 tubes one would be the preamp, one power tube and one rectifier. if those are original and working that matters as well.

 

Fender used to do "student model" amps like the Bronco which was just a repackaged Vibro Champ. I'd guess that this amp was packaged with a LP Jr. or something and is just a repackaged GA-5...

 

nice to see what i assume is the original speaker. you might look at comps for just the vintage jensen alnico. i bet your comp is low due to unoriginality etc. make sure you've got all the details lined up which matters with these vintage amps. good luck!

Without seeing a better picture of that tag, it sounds like it was made between 1962-1976.

Im gonna post the rest of the haul on the weekend because I dont think the thriftening is done yet.
But had to post this.in 15 years I have not found a single BC sport coat.yeah there have been shirts pants sweaters but never a SC.
Ive found everything from Atollini to Kiton Vicuna but this motherfucker always slipped my grasp.
So its only fitting the one i find is new,unstructured,wool/silk...and oh so lovely.

Double00 feel free to shit on it.
