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. 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.
