Good on ya.

I've used BNWOT a few time when I've seen the shirt packaging creases. My catholic soul won't permit me to fib.devil.gif

Most likely. I never actually thing the BNWOT is really brand new, but if it's in good shape, I'm happy.

Not trying to rain on your parade smile.gif Just as long as you know. Only things I've sold BNWOT are personal items and will have a pair of unhemmed trousers shortly. Stick around this thread long enough and you can have all the sub $15 bb shirts that you could ever dream of.

Trends:
1. Thrift stores are getting busier.
2. People of both sexes are getting more clued up to the flipping avenue.
3. There has been a radical increase in young people thrifting (college age to low 30's).
4. Woman used to outnumber men around 2/1, now it is getting closer to even.
5. The vehicles have improved in the parking lot. See lots of trucks / BMW's now!

Oh I know, I appreciate the feedback. biggrin.gif

 

 

The only time I'll believe something is new is if the tags are still on it and there's still creases from where it was folded. I just assume when people say BNWOT, they're saying it's basically new, but might have been tried on or worn once.

My most pronounced memory of him is seeing him on The Muppet Show, puffing out his cheeks to freak out Kermit. This probably puts me on the farther side of the bell curve.
