Whut up guys, its been awhile since ive posted any finds. Ive been trying to stay focused and work. Anyway, just wanted to vent a little....
Went to the Flea Market the other day and got proof that the dealers are worse than the Thrifts now.
Found a pair of Alden Penny Loafers in a light brown...very GOOD condition. Im thinking "Awesome! no way this guy is gonna ask for more than $40" hahaha. was I wrong. This guy wanted $200. Look em up, They went for around 160 on the 'bay. So lame. No one that goes to the flea market is gonna wanna drop $200 on Alden's. Maybe $100, but not $200.
I think dealers (and thrifts) have forgotten that their customer base are people with a limited amount of cash. People who broke or People that know their shit (Flippers) arent going to pay close or above eBay prices.
Anyways, go to another stand. In the past, this stand had a Barbour Waxed Parka jacket or whatever for $50, I shouldve probably picked that up. These people have access to some good shit. We're talking Filson, Gaultier, CP Company...prices were decent, but still more than I wanted to drop. CP Company Wool jacket for $60.
It just made me wonder, if you have access to such a good amount of shit and you know your brands (this old lady was on point, wasnt in the dark about any of the brands) why the fuck would you go to the Flea Market to slang this stuff at prices that will make bargain hunters gassy?
Last stop. What looked like a recent Burberry Duffel Coat. It wasnt new with tags so I doubt it was fake, it felt awesome. She wanted $300.
What the fuck is this world coming to?
