    Wow! Yeah, I agree with MZ but are they sorted by lines like one pile are the Brookease and the other pile are the Mainline? Do you have a time limit to haul these? PM sent.

    Even Brooksease, if NWT, full suit ought to bring $50 easy on Ebay, if you've got 200 suits in the lot that you can part with for $50, you could probably have your money back in less than a month on Ebay with a little work.

    And still be left with 1000 pieces...

    It's scary when you make the choice to step up to another level. If we came across a nwt sportcoat at $7, we'd jump on it without a hesitation; but when you have to put $10k down at once, it's nerve racking.

    I definitely am going to watch for updates on this!

    ...one thing FaceofBoh and I discussed before is opening of a pop-up store for a weekend. If you pick up this load, a pop-up would be perfect. One weekend with all them priced to move and you'll make a killing

    That's sort of what the guy from Boston's AnAffordableWardrobe does twice a year. Invites a few other vendors too to make it fun.

    Vintage (?) Brioni opera pumps - real, non-plastic, patent leather. Great condition, but they're sticky for some reason, and I have no idea how to care for this type of patent leather.

    Antiques Roadshow Anaheim:
    [​IMG]
    Shirt - Bical Bird - thrifted
    Pants - Unis - thrift funded
    Shoes - Carmina Shell jumper boots - thrift funded
    Sunglasses - Persol - thrift funded

    Warning: Antiques Roadshow is a lot of waiting in line. Even more so than a day at Disneyland. The Jewelry line was 2hrs for 2min of time with the appraiser. I skipped showing one of my two items because the collectibles line was a 3hr wait.The appraisers are very nice, and always begin by telling you how nice your item is...before they tell you how little it's worth. I didn't expect anything from my items, but my wife had a pretty fancy diamond ring that, after the appraisers reaction to it, thought she was going to end up on TV. Very high quality diamonds, platinum, lots of intricate handwork, 100yrs old, art decco...$2000. That doesn't get you on TV. Still one of my favorite show, but I'd skip it if it's ever in my area again; unless I had something really special to show.

    LV Uniforms is not really anything special. Im sure the quality was not that great. This is what the employees wear.

    I love me some 50L Brooks Bros staple suits. cough cough. Fantastic score!

    The shop down the street had somewhat empty shelves in the vinyl section. Today I walk in to find them full, with no one going through them. I may have actually muttered "oh shit." I'm sure I missed a few here and there, but I tried to go through all of it. If you need any album by Billy Joel, The Kingston Trio, Bette Midler, Johnny Mathis, many a barbershop quartet or Gordon Lightfoot, get at me haha. Managed to grab a few:

    Another copy of switched on Bach (first one I found was beat up, I think), also the follow up to it, which should be fun. A couple Beach Boys (finally), had to leave a few scratched BB albums behind. A little Floyd, some Frank, some James Taylor, a little Dead, and the soundtrack to the Sgt. Pepper's movie because well, actually I don't know why, I haven't even seen the movie haha. Any dead heads here wanna shed some light on this album? Picked it up because the vinyl looks nearly unplayed.

    Sell them slowly as not to flood the market and floor the price.
