    maybe it's a flipper unloading losers?

    i've seen similar with buffalo exchange & gw, but i think that's a straight b2b donation.

    Yeah, friendly and conversational. DON'T TALK FLIP guys that think you're killing off each item you buy and if they get into a position of pricing shit, they're going to mark it up next time. Being courteous also gets you noticed.

    ... I think that if I ever won the lottery, I would still shop at Goodwill and Savers for the thrill of the hunt. Maybe a side hobby would be to bring some of the purchases into other thrift stores and leave them hanging on the rack as if they belonged there.

    Quick (quite literal) coffee trip today.

    Thrifted a Bonavita BV-1800. Coffee snobs know the deal with this. I already have one, so if anyone in the LA area wants a baller coffee machine hit me up.

    Luciano Barbera Raw Silk blazer. Size 40. Has a lil stain so if anyone wants some otherwise gorgeous cruisewear I'll let it go for what I paid.

    If I won the lottery I would open a saver in oyster bay New York and put baller ass NWT Loro piana on the racks priced $10 below MSRP

    Then I probably couldn't drive it to you today. ;)

    I'm willing to ship, I just figured it would be easier for someone local to snag.

    Its a very well regarded coffee maker. Sort of a poor man's Technivorm Moccamaster

    I'd start a prop house, which would enable me to travel the world buying dope shit, warehouse it, and rent stuff out for movies & TV. Get to keep all the stuff and make $ on it at the same time.

    I might be interested if you say this is significantly ballerer than my Zojirushi.
