Fine by me. I skip the rest and start on the other side, different rack, different section, whatever. It's all for the taking, first-come, new stuff all day every day. Times like that I check sections I usually skip - vinyl rekkids, housewares, electronics, rugs. Has paid off a few times, but usually not.

I saw that here last weekend - dude had 3 carts - THREE CARTS - loaded to the top with shirts, pants, you name it. It was 1/2-off day at a local indie thrift place (not just 1/2 off a certain color, but 1/2 off everything if you have the right coupon). Then he went off into a corner and painstakingly looked everything over for damage. I was all kinds of pissed off at this hoarder, until I looked at what he left behind on an empty rack in the back - all Stafford, Van Heusen, CK, Izod etc. I should not have been worried - I was working the racks right behind him and grabbed a Robert Graham he passed on.

I do not own that rack - I own one side each of two opposing racks - one left and one right - and you can wait your turn. Not like there's much to find up here in hillbilly town anyway; y'all would be kind to leave it for me...though I read with some dismay a few pages back about a pro flipper at the Roswell GW store (I believe ATLjon posted it)...wasn't me (not "youngish" and I rarely get out on a weekday), but that is one GW on my bi-weekly route. I like to think that these folks are the people with perpetual yard sales / resale shops who buy anything with the color of the week in decent shape and a name-brand label, and make 2 or 3 bucks per item - volume sales. And hey - I thought ATLjon was strictly ITP?!
