I need someone who knows what they're doing to do a major project with me to give me confidence.

Nicely done.

Seriously you just need to lay out a step by step plan and then jump in with both feet. If you keep thinking about the project as a whole it feels really overwhelming and impossible but each step feels really easy. Plus once you rip the room out not having your master bath provides lots of motivation to get it back together smile.gif.

edit: also buy lots of beer and when you get frustrated put your tools and shit down and go have one (or ten depending on how frustrated you are, just keep drinking them until you aren't frustrated any more.).

^^ I know. It's the same with woodworking, but on a larger scale. Problem is, when I screw up a clock or some thing I'm building, I can just toss it. When I screw up the kitchen, well....

Anywho.

That feeling when you're photographing the YSL RG shirt you found last week and say, you know, this really doesn't feel like cotton. Then you find the tag and see this.
WHAT DID THE TAG SAY??!! (Click to show)


Yup.

That feeling.

I think you just summed up how I have to look at my job for the foreseeable future. Thanks!

This looks like a "burbs" haul ?

Any item does well if you take good pics , list correctly and price accordingly . It not rocket science but does take some skill.

I pass on dated items as well .

I would say about 50% of the stores around here have mens JC shirts in the womens section. I'm just too afraid to buy them :embar:.

Oy did one of you guys snipe this? I'd been hoping to pounce but got edged out :/

I should have thrown more $$ in. These suckers would have been perfect for just about everything. What a bummer for me, these are worth so much more. Wahhhh!

 

Blah. Dammit...

Haha, not at all. I actually just showed those photos to my wife as an example of what we could do to our bath - thanks for posting.

Ok guy, here was my haul from today. Fighting with my ancient laptop here, so hopefully everything came out ok. Many thanks to those who gave valuable input. Sure, mistakes were made but overall I felt I came out on the winning side of things.

I will edit after I upload to spoiler as my laptop is giving me fits.

Pretty much all available. Whatever spoo will take will likely end up in his hands . . . Depending upon how our current arrangements do. smile.gif
