Yes, they are. I had a pair of CT Chelsea boots a while back that sold for a decent amount.
Also, why does everyone have my bag?
IMO it's unfortunate people have to justify not "going stuff away" on this thread. This is the bragging thread, not the "I found this and want to give it away for free thread" I LOVE trading and always appreciate great deals and think a lot of people appreciate what I've sold/given/traded with them, but I just find it funny how a) some people expect the world with nothing in return here just because YOU (the finder) didn't pay a lot for it and B) if you dont offer it dirt cheap you have to give a reason,excuse, feel bad.
This is not directed at you per say pnutpug, just in general but your comment made my point.
SIDE NOTE: Was super super super pissed of last night at a Marshalls. Picked up two great items 1) John Varvatos mainline summer (cotton blend) double breasted, peak label, suit for $135 (down from $1695 retail) and 2) Corneliani paper thin, perfect for summer sport coat in a smaller size for $100. Got up to the register and the guy couldnt get the sensor off the Varvatos, and proceeded to explode the secuirty tag all over both items and himself Thankfully I didnt get any red dye on me and these were to ebay/trade an not my size. Pretty pissed though as they were easy money
Little bit of bragging:
Where's the little horse? (Click to show)
Not available- arms have stretched out a bit, but fits great everywhere else.
And authenticity check, please? Asked a while back, but during the Spoo hiatus, so no dice. I'm now thinking this may be mega-fake...hmmm.

We could just talk about our dreams.
I'll start with the dreams. I was in a thrift and found a few things, noticing that there were two guys across the rack from me who seemed interested in what I had set aside. I looked away for a couple seconds and the bigger gent (think Abbot and Costello proportions) snatched the three things I had set aside. Dior (not monsieur), Margiela, Loro Piana, whatever. I was obviously incensed, while he was quite amused by the possession is 9/10 nonsense. I finally got it all back and put it behind the counter. Moments later, as the store was closing, I dug out a minty fresh Filson bag that I've been after for awhile (the Pullman). This time it was the skinny fellow, only this time he had paid and was already walking out the door when I asked the clerk if she had seen someone grab a bag in such and such a shape. Her blank nod, not unlike ones I've seen from thrift store volunteers, indicated that yes, someone had just walked away with the bag of my dreams, literally.
In conclusion, I processed Nat's real life nightmare into my dream and have realized I think about this hobby way too much. Hide your finds, protect your carts, shit's getting swiped.
