So there would be publicly traded thrifters/online consignors? I'll take $20 bucks of Spoo (there's a sentence I never thought I'd write) but I'm curious how the business model would work.

I can see it now - late night traders think they're investing in the FTSE 100 and accidentally buy into FTS.

dunno

each trader would have market value, like wes brian and dm7 are apple ibm and home depot or something

they would list their finds there instead of ebay

you can trade or sell and their seller points go up like stock shares... you can invest in your favorite thrifter.

ive had a lot of drinks and typing very ian erickson but this somewhat makes sense in my head right now anyhow

 I've been having the occasional visions of grandeur with a similar idea... Mostly, it's a pipe dream, but it would be a wicked use of the web design skills I have that nobody seems to want to hire me for. Avoiding Ebay's fees would be nice as well!

If it works as a way to avoid ebay fees, you've got my attention.

Years ago (like '97 or '98) there was something similar for Hollywood movies (new releases) and stars. It didn't do much for me, because i wasn't a film fanatic, but I knew people who really got caught up on it. But I am a thrifting fanatic, so this interests me.

It seems to be working?  You'll need to register to view the site.  The Sport Coats are currently going for $105.

 

What particular issue did you have?

post #79290 of 114933

Double never mind... given the two posts below, I'm guessing it's not working after all.

 

PS It's working alright DM, just a little slow starting out.
