The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 637

^Post pictures of those tags. They may give a clue to the maker (eg, Chester Barrie). Made in England is good for selling. You should take good pictures, including pictures of all tags, take good measurements, and list it here at SF. If you don't get nibbles after a couple of price drops take it to ebay. Edit: He wasn't knocking you for getting it for $10 (not in this thread). Some buyers get touchy if they know how much you're making on the sale, or think you're making "too much" regardless of whether or not they're paying a fair price.

Hey, I ain't judging how you make the money, just saying some people have criticized others for asking a price after telling what they got something for. I hope you get $200 for the thing, it's a nice coat.

Nice find. Try eBay, too. 100 or more. Good luck

Chill! This is a thrifter's bragging board. $10 is a good thing. Sell it for 500 and come back to brag about it, we'll all congratulate you.

Guess that came across wrong. It was written as more of a matter of fact statement. Not offended by what people said.

Nice find on that - some may debate Pink's quality, but I like them personally. That shirt is just awesome, too - wishing it was three inches bigger in the neck!

Found a Burberry DB SC and a mysterious "Made In Italy" SC with no labels whatsoever. Three buttons on the sleeve, ventless, two button. Anybody got any idea of the maker based on the attached photos?

How the fuk does everyone seem to find good stuff. Anyone from LA care to help out and tell me about some decent spots (please! pm me if you prefer). It is such a pain to look up thrift store on the Google then drive across town to find a piece of crap store selling sweat shirts and pants and a bunch of old microwaves....

Distressfully yours.

^More power to you if you get some good tips, however, finding shops on Google and going to check them out is exactly how I started. It takes awhile, and you're seeing all the finds, not hearing about all the busts behind them.

Do you have Android phone? My Samsung has an app that came with it that I think is part of google phones. It's called "Places" and you just add "Thrift Stores" and it finds them for you. Closest to farthest. Great for thrifting!

Persistance and learning when to go make a great deal of difference in what you find.

Learn when the sale days are, and know that the stores will often be cleared out of good stuff for a few days after etc etc.

You can;t get discouraged either, I don't know about others here, but I'd guess I end up buying something 1 out of 5 trips.

you only see the braggers! I have been doing dry runs, too.

Not getting discouraged is probably the biggest thing. I've gone months without finding stuff and then I'll have a day where I find a ton. You just have to believe that regardless of whats happened your last 1, 5, 10, 20 trips that your next big hit is just right around the corner.
