have you ever forgotten to empty out the pockets of something you've sold thru B&S?

    ...or vice versa, bought something off of B&S/ebay and found stuff in the pockets?

    I bought a pair of Acne's off of ebay and they smelled like the seller wore them to the club, then packed them and shipped them off to me. They stank like cigarettes, and in the pockets were the foil from an eastern European brand of cigarettes, a cigar wrapper, and $5 in the coin pocket.
    Got me thinking, though, I bet some there have been more interesting finds out there in the collective buying and selling population.

    haha! that's a great story. I sure hope I haven't left anything in pants I've sold, especially because I keep a condom with me everywhere I go.

    I've heard tell of people discovering c notes behind the liners of vintage hats off ebay, which was apparenly not a rare place to put emergency cash back in the day.

    Haven't come across anything myself though.

    I bought a suit from eBay that was sold as in New without tags condition. Suit arrived, obviously not new, and there was a yarmulke in the pants pocket.

    I once found a kleenex in an APC jacket I bought off of someone, which totally ruined it for me.

    Oy vey, call the ADL. Somewhere, someone, of indeterminate ethnicity, recounted a not 100% positive story about someone else of indeterminate ethnicity.
