Well, they had two bears, one being a steiff. It was pretty new, so I honestly didn't think it was worthwhile. The second one, however, was a Fechter in perfect condition. It was older and 100% mohair. I can find the, sporadically online with prices ranging from €50-$2200, but I don't know where I'd unload it. Any ideas??

Agreed. Here are the first five steps, in fact:

 

1. We admitted we were powerless over high-end clothing and our living spaces had become unmanageable.
2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves, probably Spoo, could restore us to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of eBay as we understood It.
4. Made a searching and fearless clothing inventory of our stock.
5. Admitted to SF colleagues, to ourselves, and to a random thrift store cashier the exact nature of our difficulties.

Any ideas ...

 


Darrell from Storage Wars? I remember he found a steiff in one episode, delivered a few poorly written jokes to a dumbfounded appraiser, and looked generally awkward ... so maybe you can give him a call.

Like a lot of you on this thread, I have a ton of stuff to move. This weekend is ebay weekend, I think. And I'll probably return that RLBL tie just to make my workload a bit less.

 

And yet I still pick things up:

think a little bit of your cufflink luck rubbed off on me.  found my first pair of cufflinks at lunch, Thomas Pink, brand new, were $13.99, but still a good price v retail.

Today was a good day. My closet is the most organized it's been since I started thrifting. All the piles of clothes are gone, which will make my wife happy. I took all the excess stuff you guys didn't want or that went unsold on the bay to the local trade/consignment store. Amongst all the BR, J Crew, and Gap shit, I found these two gems.



RLPL 100% linen, and PRL made in the USA plaid linen. The PRL just need to be hemmed and they will be prefect, no tapering necessary. Funny thing, the PRL were more expensive then the purple label. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif I came out with enough bread to take my wife to a nice dinner and I also picked up a sick vintage plaid double breasted hounds-tooth top coat I'd been eying on the bay for a couple weeks. Made the dude a low offer and he jumped on it. Hand made in England. Pics when it arrives.

I just remembered, I owe the thread pics of the 20 pairs I picked up this weekend. Will try to get that done tonight.

Also, this means I can start thrifting again, right?
