1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Don't worry, all the good stuff will be claimed by that eBay turd who marks up the prices on EG seconds to the likes of EG Top Drawers.

    If you want slight seconds and seconds, then it would be worth going

    If not, just wait for the post x-mas sale at the Jermyn Street store

    I remember being the second person through the door into one of these events and he was already there (and he wasn't the one stood in front of me) with about twenty pairs of shoes.

    That sale was a lot different than the one planned. Picked up many EGs for £100 I gather...

    Spoo...



    It reminds me now - I had a belter of a hangover and probably for the most part was still drunk when I got the train to Northampton from London around 7AM on the Saturday morning. Severely worse for wear I was propped up in an office chair and fed aspirin by the great female staff! Oh youth...

    Thanks

    Well I love to hunt for potential bargains so I am planning to attend

    I am considering offering proxy services (up to a few pairs) if there is enough interest.

    However, not having performed this role before I am unsure about the usual "terms and conditions", so hopefully more experienced members can help out.

    I wonder for example whether it would be expected that the 'client' put down a deposit -naturally fully refundable if the agreed shoes and or price could not be achieved- or is the risk fully on the proxy's side? Is the proxy's fee fixed upfront, or some percentage of the final price, etc

    Thanks for any feedback

    Labels everything as "super rare?"

    One of the ' old timers' around here has all the "dirt", on how the Spiv manages to continually pull this Off.
