In other news, I haven't had too much time to thrift because I've been engaged in a little renovation project on my laundry room for the last week-and-a-half. Seventeen years in this house and only now am I getting to it - it's the last room in the house to be tackled. I had dreams of making it my ebay man cave (i.e. having a dedicated space to store and photograph inventory). But space was at a premium. I'm posting photos here because some of what I used was "thrifted". The wood cabinet (and a mate I have for another project) are from kijiji - $40. The lower cabinets are from an architectural salvage place - $60. The countertop was in our kitchen before we renovated it a few years ago - $0. The whole project came in for a bit less than $750.

I just ordered some multi-bin laundry baskets on Amazon last night and I have some finishing and plumbing to do, but that's all minor.

Before







After






That's awesome. Been dreaming of putting in a room like that in our open basement laundry corner

If anyone finds decent pumps in a thrift store buy them! They do decent on ebay + most other members on SF will want to trade you.

well shit guys my first round of a bunch of shit I sent to spoo is ending tomorrow and it is at like thrift store prices, I might even lose money on a few of them. maybe I should stick to dealing only with people on the thread frown.gif (my frustration isn't directed at spoo he is a pleasure to work with and is probably the best consigner around, I just guess my items are just not very good...)
but I mean I got like 40349058458 pms on this rag & bone....

http://www.ebay.com/itm/310598044683?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

and this isaia is cool right?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/360593807150?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

this is a freaking cantarelli (for facconable..) with dual vents tasteful pattern ect. 0 FREAKING BIDS I mean shit it is a nice sportcoat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/350716223240?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

ugh I might have to get a "real job"

It goes with the territory dude.

This is the reality:

Take all these goods and on one 10 day stretch a few bidders are gunning for them. Result = profit and some decent prices. On another 10 days stretch, nobody even notices. Just the way it friggin goes my man! It sucks but that is eBay for you - up n down random unpredictable etc etc.....

Some sellers do the BIN with offer and keep the items on a fixed(ish) price for even months eventually getting what that item should of gone for. Spoo has gone for the random nature of auctions, presumably because he has such a high turnover that placing items on fixed BIN / OBO would mean a chaotic inventory and a mountain of work keeping track of everything. Lower volume sellers can take the BIN/OBO approach. In some ways the 10 day auction is superior - its temporal nature means bidders out there have to bid - although one needs the bidders in the first place during a short time span. On the other side, How many BIN/OBO items have many watchers and few to no offers? BIN/OBO says "put me in watch I will hang around". Auction says "make your stand, once gone always gone". One approach is slightly more deterministic, the other subject more to pure randomness. Neither way is superior - law of averages will always apply but one will only see these averages over a larger number of samples (i.e. over 100's of auctions versus a select handful).

He was here a few months ago, had a few posts but people ragged on him. Always seemed like a nice guy when I PM him. He buys/sells for a living (like a lot of people here). The Brioni sold at a good price will 99.99% end back up on ebay in a week or two.

Didn't get out this weekend. I was itching by the end of the day today and tried to find a gw that was open after 6 but no luck. I spent the weekend rounding up everything and got it listed. Definitely going at lunch tomorrow.

I think he means this collaboration:

I've got some Am. Living ties that I like. Unless, of course, you're asking Ian about the actual jacket...

On the subject of apparitions, I'd like to share something I have encountered that is not really scary, but it's just weird and happens at night. I live the the dc burbs and my area (NoVA) has had it's share of skirmishes in both the civil war and probably the war of independence. I also run and with the shorter days I run in the late afternoon after work when there is usually no light.

More than once I see this guy wearing a white gown (to the middle thigh) and walking out of the corner of my eye. He has long disheveled hair and is looking straight ahead. This road I run by has those waist high concrete dividers that separate both sides of traffic. I've seen him straddle the divider to overcome it but he will use his lead leg to go over it frontward, while maintaining his vision straight ahead. Kinda the opposite of how you would straddle a horse, if that makes sense. When I look right at him, he is gone. I only see him out of the corner of my eye. Also, he never looks at me he's just walking straight ahead.

Now, I've thought maybe he was in a military hospital during wartime. I've wanted to research whether white gowns were worn in hospitals during the civil war, for example. Also, I've thought that everyone during civil war time had short hair but I'm not sure. I do know that most of the civil war guys had facial hair. I can't tell if this guy has facial hair. That's it.

Damn I passed up a cashmere sweater exactly like this one, except it only had the white tag with red writing. I was 99% sure it was vintage Brooks Brothers but I was worried it wouldn't flip without the tag. It was in my cart and everything.
