The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 2123

post #31831 of 109269


Looks like when I was going through the racks at LastCall in Atlanta. If I had had $1000 I would have gone home with a gorgeous purple plaid Isaia SC that fit me like a dream.

Thanks everyone! I'm still sorting through the PM's but I wanted to address the thread as well. A half inch too wide (but I could live with that) and 3 inches too long for me! ffffuuuu.gif

Yep, discount store. And one not known for usually producing anything for me. I caught the rack literally leaving the stock room.

This is the only thing I have that might fit your needs. 3.5" wide.

Yeah, it's probably a good thing I don't live near a LastCall. It would be too tempting.

Excuse the triple post, but today I found two albums I think are worth some dough -- Scorpions Virgin Killer, and one from -- what, some band with Eric Clapton? -- Blind Faith? Both covers discontinued/famous (I think) for, erm, nude women who are way too Jung for that sort of thing. The only reason I know this is because I remember some sort of free speech debate over eBay or Google or someone deciding to block sales/images,etc. TOO SCARED/EMBARRASSED TO COP!

This reminds me - do any of you guys find vintage (70s + 80s) concert/tour/band shirts? If you do, Id be interested in any size.

I think it's time for me to defend myself a bit.  The doubting and accusing hasn't bothered me before now.  I've taken it in stride, and at at times have found it funny.  I just figured that I know what I've found, where I've found it, and how I've found it.

 

Recent posts have been inflammatory, and disrespectful.  This forum is a community that I value, and part of a hobby that I enjoy, and I'd like to keep it that way.

 

As for the origin of my finds, here are the stats (the amount of times that I have bought from each):

Garage Sales: 2

Estate Sales: 1

Consignment Shops: 0

Discount Stores: 0

The rest of the items have come from true thrift stores (Goodwill, Salvation Army, and smaller local stores)

 

When buying from Garage and Estate sales, the prices have been very similar to thrift stores.

 

The most I have paid for a single item by a large margin was the Chanel Boutique piece that I found.  It was $69.99.

 

As for connections I have, or people on the inside giving me tips to large hauls, there are none.  I am very friendly to any employees that I get the chance to talk to, but I don't do this expecting any favors.  I just find it nice to walk into a familiar store with familiar employees.  Several times (3-4) these employees have given me Senior or Military discounts (usually 10%), however, I didn't ask for this.

 

Finding large hauls has either resulted from the pure volume of stores that I visit, or in some cases by doing a bit of thinking and legwork.

 

For instance:  These Marc Jacobs jackets came from a large chain.  This chain uses a central distribution network in such a way that all donations get processed through a single warehouse, then shipped off to various stores in the area.  I first found a small number of the jackets at one of these stores.  I knew which stores would possibly have more jackets based on several previous orphans that I had matched between stores.  I found a few more jackets at other stores.  By looking at some price tags, I determined when these stores would be getting a new shipment.  I arrived at the largest of the stores 15 minutes before they opened, and picked up a bunch more jackets from that shipment.

 

Hopefully someone will find that helpful! 

 

Now Valium, I'm speaking directly to you.  Before now, the only times that I have quoted you, or referenced you, has been to congratulate you on a find.  There is always a fair share of bickering in this thread, but until now it has maintained maturity and respect.  Several of your posts show neither.

 

Quite a few prominent veterans on here have come to my defense from time to time.  I appreciate it.  It's not the amazing finds, or ebay bickering that keeps this thread alive and kicking:  It's you guys who maintain a friendly, helpful, and complimentary community here.

Where does all this rage come from? What are you referring to? Why all the profane language and hostility?
Scroll back and provide evidence of these charges. There isn't any.
I've never attacked you but I certainly will place you on ignore. smile.gif
Quoted for further evidence. Keep it up Frenchie. You've been banned for this type of behaviour once already.
I enjoy this thread. I don't care if people flip or not. It doesn't affect my life in the least. I am happy for them.
Why you come to this forum to troll is beyond anyones comprehension. No friends offline?
Don't bother with a response. I have no choice but to place you on ignore.
You can use your tricks to create new accounts all you like but your behaviour will always give you away.
Really..give it a rest.
 

 

Holy shit, shit just got way to SRS BIZNS just now.  It's a thread.  Focused on thrifting.  Within a forum.  Focused on clothes.  Everyone needs to:

 

 

Now, I like trolling with the best of them.  I've done so quite successfully on other forums much to my own enjoyment.  Interestingly, I can provide this important insight: the single most important thing to a troll is that he rile up his target.  Whether DM7 is a troll or not is entirely immaterial; either he has amazing finds, or he doesn't.  A "yes" or a "no" answer to this question should have absolutely zero effect on the daily lives of anyone tangentially involved with this thread.  However, if he IS trolling, and he's managed to get: 1) Valium to leave, 2) several people to get SUPER MAD over the accusations about him/come to his defense/bring the pitchforks against him, and 3) get people to talk about him more than 9000 seconds, then he's succeeded in his efforts to troll.  If he isn't a troll, then 1) he knows that, and 2) he can, as a result of this knowledge, rest secure with the realization that those calling for his head are "h8rz".  My point is that to spend more than 2 seconds thinking about DM7's legitimacy is spending 2 seconds too many on the subject.  It really doesn't matter.  If he is...then, well, shit, our lives change none.  If he isn't...then, well, shit a dude somewhere finds a lot of good shit. 

 

And now, I acknowledge that I've spent more than 2 seconds thinking about DM7's legitimacy.  And now I'm SUPER MAD at myself for that.
