post #73141 of 112461
I strayed into some territory I don't usually go into.

Lee denim jacket. I'm hoping it's pushing into the 1960s because of a couple of clues from its construction.




Navajo design western ROPER shirt, Made in USA. There's a stamped tag next to the mfg tag and it appears to say 1983. So probably of an age to have inspired Ralph Lauren passion for the Southwest. I think the hipsters in Brooklyn go for this stuff.

I think the only modern rugs readily available that will truly increase in value are Persian hand-made silk, as there is still an embargo.  I met with a lady a few weeks ago that had in excess of 400 hand-made Persian silk rugs stacked all over her house - she had collected them as investments and was doing very well re-selling them some 20 or 30 years later.  But at $15 each those Karastans can easily be worth a few hundos more than you paid if in good shape, and depends on the tags (vintage vs. new tagging) and material.  I mean, they are American and machine-made, so they are desirable but not nearly the same thing.  Some longer custom Karastans can fetch more but 12' is standard and yours are probably the 2' to 2'6" width - the wider 2' 10" are pretty scarce and more valuable (so check your size tags / measure!).  Nonetheless I would have loved to find those for $100 - $150 each, so at $15 you did amazingly well.

Found this Sid Mashburn at GW, checked it over, bought it and was all proud of myself:

 

 

Looked good in the store:

 

 

Then I got it home and found this hiding in the rear back pleat:

 

 

Motherf****rs who donate torn / stained / damaged stuff to thrifts really irk me.  Like they think "Oh, those poor people will definitely want to buy my old, faded, stained collar, torn shirt because it's [Brooks Brothers or whatnot] and poor people want to have nice things like this shirt used to be."  Or whatever - no idea what goes thru the mind of someone who donates unusable and unwearable stuff.  For the tax write-off?  If so, that's pretty crummy....

Everyone I've met up with or spoken on the phone with on here has told me I have a pretty thick Scandinavian accent. I've never noticed myself until I went to SoCal for the first time (my wife is from there) and people asked me where I was from.

Well, what do ya expect? I am from Meen-ah-soh-tah, doncha no-oh. laugh.gif

Thanks!
 

Faketey fake.

This stuff is from all over the place - true thrifts, resale, consignment clearance sales, outlet mall clearance sales, etc...
Nothing available at the moment - some already scheduled to start on the 'bay tonight since I've been too busy doing that and have been negligent in posting here in quite some time.

Won't bother posting the more run-of-the-mill PRL, BB etc stuff that I always pick up.

I second that. This shit doesn't even work half of the time.

Just tossing my hat int he ring....never had a single issue and there should be no issue with setting a bid at the BIN price due to the fact that if the bidding gets to be that high (BIN price) then the BIN price will have already disappeared it will be like a regular bid. One has nothing to do with the other.
