    It's amazing seeing what people go nutz for on Ebay...

    I posted my old(ish) Feathered Friends down park and pants (bought in 2003, haven't worn in 4+ years).

    180+ views in 25 hours before I accepted an offer.

    The Merrell Trail Gloves I posted have 80+ views, 13 watchers, 1 bid and end tomorrow evening.

    In my experience, outdoors sporting clothing and equipment and cycling stuff sell better than anything else. The trick is selling the good stuff that command premium prices...

    I would just like to thank ATLjon for hooking me up with a sweet sportcoat - quick and fair.

    Quick noob question, are Brooks Bros 1818 sportcoats of interest? There was one on the rack, but the patch pockets were stitched closed (not basted I don't think). It felt like there was a pocket there on the inside of the lining. Dunno. Was a reasonably attractive tweed. Tags were missing, im guessing 42-44 in size.

    Tell me about it. This reminds me of the time that I picked up that recent women's Kiton VICUNA jacket at a thrift and couldn't give it away on Ebay. Took about 6 months for it to sell for about half of what I expected it would fetch immediately. :embar:

    :slayer: Nice!! MMM is a great score, IMO. As for me, I found a bunch of stuff today. North Face Summit Series 700 fill down jacket, Mountain Hardware down jacket, NWT Icebreaker x Moosejaw Mountaineering l/s sweater, Filson waxed cotton hat, MINT Bose 201 Series II speaker, etc. Pics to come...

    Several "first time in a thrift" moments for me today - Valentino, Pal Zileri, Zegna tie, Armani tie to name a few. Likely all from the same owner because they were all about 15-20 years old and ugly as shite. Olive green DB suit. Gold and black colored Loro Piana 130s sport coat? W.T.F.

    Also, I stopped by a place that had Jos Bank suits (granted, some of there were NWT) for $150-$250, Jos Bank ties for $35 and white Cole Haan saddles for $79. I wanted to ask them if they just liked keeping that stuff in the store instead of selling it but I walked out after a few minutes.

    Anyone familiar with this brand. I can't find anything on it. I thought it may be something good because the person had some stubs and Wooten slippers and a pair of brooks brothers tassel loafers [​IMG]

    WTF, my earlier post was faqed up due to the spoilers. SO, reposting these for pure braggery! I'm keeping one and the other one is prolly gonna go towards a trade.

    Found these two side by side during a speed picking. Come to my greedy little fingers! I literally shouted, "Woa" after seeing these! Cherry popped!
