Freeman looks more like it. I was almost going to say Free, but I wasn't sure about the fourth letter. I'll search Freeman. Thanks,

Yeah, you got that look in your eye.

Sweet jacket, how much?

Nice find. My knowledge of leather jackets is pretty much zero. What would something like that retail for?

Ferre Jeans line? Maybe $500.

I'm so annoyed. I went to my local SA and found a new with tags from Neiman's Donna Karan linen tweed jacket in my size that was just awesome. Here's the problem, they won't sell anything that is missing their price tag. So it has to be sent back to their central branch to be retagged and then sent back to the store. I asked the manager to call me when it came back. I go back today and she's having a difficult pregnancy and won't be back for 2 months. No note left behind about the jacket so it's probably in another state by now.

This is why a dedicated thrifter will always carry a mini stapler, a pen, and a swiss army knife with scissors.

It's funny, last week right as I saw the jacket an old woman in a wheel chair was busted by the very same manager for having a stapler.

Do you mean that if the tag is missing, another tag can be stapled on?

what kind of stuff would have good resale value?
post #1334 of 115117
Well, I've never carried a stapler or pulled a tag. But then I live by the old-school thrifting code. It does seem like this sort of thing is becoming more of a problem as e-bay flippers continue to invade the stores. Used to be that only the crazies and completely destitute pulled off the tags. Now it seems to be done by people trying to improve their margins and the thrift stores around here, at least, are taking a much harder line on not selling un-tagged things. Anyway, sorry to hear about your loss, texas_jack. If it's any consolation, I've found that once the thrift store staff gets to know that you're an honest thrifter they'll be more accomodating in pricing tag-less items. So consider the DK jacket an offering to the thrift-store gods and an investment in the future. And, who knows, it could show up again. Thrifting is all about karma.
