ARRRGGGGHH I hate when I don't use my eBay app to check prices ffffuuuu.gif. Lucky these were $8 each and the brown one fits me. The other 42R (Cheap for the right person) can eventually go on eBay as a cheap auction to hopefully get eyes on the rest of my stuff (if I ever get around to listing anything).

Still way behind on bragging and photographs, but here are a few recent finds. These make me seem luckier than I have been, and span several of the driest weeks I've had in years.

Some ties.

THIS GUY teacha.gif but honestly I usually leave them if they don't catch my eye. That one I really liked. As you can see, most sell in the $10-$35 range and that is not worth picking up.

On the second one you're better off getting your 8$ back if you can.

Is that boss an old tag? I try not to pick up Boss anymore but I liked the color and the tag intrigued me, plus 75% off. Was it a decent pick up for like a couple bucks?

 

I would have passed seeing the damage on the lining.

Wow! That is some amazing luck. I know the one (and only) store that the boutique gets their stuff from so I know where to go looking for a match and still have never had luck finding an orphan piece at that store or visa versa.

That's the best thing about having low expectations, it rocks when it gets a lot better! I'm totally stoked for you, dude. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

three more ties



also left behind a few harold powell ties that felt pretty nice, a hickey freeman collection tie (I have another one that's been sitting on ebay for weeks with no watchers), a nice talbott paisley tie, a talbott BOC and a pair of lightly-worn park avenues in 6.5C that they wanted $100 for.
