One would think the people who make their living out of this would be reluctant to advertise their business model in return for a 15 sec. fame to people who would never take a second look to thrifting thread of styleforum even if they stumbled in a google search. confused.gif Oh well. Carry On.

I doubt 90% of the people who read that article will even set foot in a thrift store after reading that, let alone turn into hardcore flippers.

 

If anything, it might make eBay customers a little more wary of where their products are coming from.

Also, not sure what you mean by "thats not the dior you're looking for" , they're both very nice items. 

 

Does the tag say Christian Dior Monsieur or simply Christian Dior? If it does...sarcasm.gif

There are plenty of ways to make money. Donald Trump's business model isnt a secret, but can you reproduce it and is it a threat to him if you use leverage to buy some rental properties? No. The dedication, the leg work, and the knowledge that it takes to be successful are the critical elements. CapnWes in contrast to Private Eyes, for example. No disrespect to PE, but as Capn said, you must be doing it wrong. 

As for Spoo mentioning Luxe Swap, why wouldnt he? He's a business man and this is how he makes a living...and an even better one that I thought he did, it turns out. Had he NOT mentioned LuxeSwap I would have been shocked and thought he were crazy. No point in being a secret business, is there?

I doubt anyone who reads the article would all of a sudden willing to spend countless of hours just to find that one piece...Wait a minute...This sounds familiar...

Great job guys!

 

The cat has been out of the bag for some time now. Sorry catside, no pun intended. What separates these three, as well as most of the regulars here, is the knowledge that we have "paid" for over the years.

 

Fakes, orphans, stains, moth holes, brand identification. . . It is hard to hide 50,000 posts on the most active thread on SF on any given day. . . lookaround.gif
