The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 6579

If anyone wants anything of the following PM me:
Double Tin Hunting Pants Otter Green 32
Double TIn Pants Tan 32,30
Double TIn Pants Green 42
Flannel Lined Pants 36,34,28
Mackinaw Bibs Green 36
Mackinaw Bibs Green 36
Tin Brush Pants Tan 36


Also found a lot of the Green Wool Outfitter jacket again, but it is not as good value as the pants. There is one other store in the city. Might go there tomorrow.

I really don't want to be a tough guy or anything, but this is what, the fourth time you advertise your flipping scheme with the - essentially - same things? And from what I can tell, not at cost + shipping, but rather with a hefty profit? I'm all for stuff like that, but I don't think this thread needs to be turned into a buy and sell thread. It is what it is, in all its glory.

And, on that note:

Picked up three NWT suits (all same pattern) from swedish Oscar Jacobson yesterday, and a Tiger of Sweden suit today. I recognize them from last year when they were obviously donated from a lokal menswear store, only then the prices were at seven times what they were now.

3 x


1 x


And while the last one certainly isn't anything to brag with (wool/poly blend) one of the exactly the same model did sell well for me just a couple of days ago.

Sorry if it came off like that. I'm just asking around as I'm new to the buying stuff just for flipping it and I was seeking advice. Those who have contacted me and asked for quotes have gotten a fair price I would say. It actually takes me some time to go to the stores and post offices so cost + shipping and a small surcharge ($20) is what I offered to the people who PM-ed me.

That's not a bad deal at all, so that's kind of you. Then, I just think it's the frequency thing, but on the other hand, sometimes other people post the same stuff a few times. Sorry if I sounded harsh.

hey guys!

just found an Ermegildo Zegna tuxedo jacket + pants size 52. Great condition

 

Do you know if it has any resell value on eBay? Or anyone interested by an exchange (I'm a 56L)??

oops sorry, and I'm not even interested to begin selling stuff on eBay actually. I don't know about other Canadian members here but shipping costs are ridiculous from North of the border so I don't really see how it would be interesting for a European/American dude to buy from us :D

 

Anyway about the Zegna tux, just wondering if anyone would trade that for SCs. I don't generally wear tux :D

Read the title :  "The Official Thrift/discount store bragging thread"   There are dedicated threads for selling and asking values. 

 

many can't grasp the concept. but they have been around long enough to get away with it.  out of ignorance or arrogance?  don't care either way.

 

this thread always has been, and always will be. - buyng awesome stuff for cheap and keeping it.  after bragging about it.

 

"Flippers" are a whole different species.   check the other threads out it you want to flip.

 

 

Stuff i'm selling...

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Haha,nothing for sale here.

No it hasn't. I'm pretty sure some of the earliest posts on this thread involved members that flipped a few things or bought them to trade or sell to other members for cheap. Otherwise it makes no sense for people to buy like 5 different sizes of things...
