    ^^^ I have thrifted only once in Vegas and thought the exact same thing. I feel like someone out there must have it on lock down. I always thought it was parisvegas.

    actual stuff to post and actual money to be made, you know, the reason we do this.




    ALSO BREIFLY, IVE ALREADY MADE A CHANGE IN DECISION AS FAR AS THE TIE SALE GOES, ILL ANNOUNCE A DATE AND MOST WILL ALL BE NO MORE THAN 5 FREE SHIPING AND DEALS WITH THE HIGHER YOU GO, HOWEVER THE CHANGE TO CLARIFY, EVERY OFFER ON EVERY TIE WILL BE CONCIDERED, THERE IS NOTHING OFF LIMITS, NOTHING, ACT ACCORDINGLY.

    If you really wanna know the Vegas game i shall briefly inform you. One of my clients works in the dimaond industry which hass him in two other major cities and every elongated periods of time, due to the industires set locations when it comes to conventions as well as his companies operationss. Vegas and Miami, however its mostlly Vegas and he can be in vegas couped up for 2-3 weeks at a time, so all he does when hes not working is he thrifts....he does get some great pieces as im sure you can imagine do pop up there without a doubt, but keep in mind this is for 2 straight weeks, he winds up with a bunch of fucking good shit, highly in demand goods, stuff that sells and people want. But hes not poppin Kiton Cashmeres or Brioni suits left and right, because thats not the game there becaues the people that live there dont do that shit. First, theres this idea that the thrfiting woudl be aweosme so everyone that vists who thrifts does this, so you immediately have to accept that the most frequented city by travelers in country is have its racks hit hard daily, then you have to deal with the fact that the rich there, they arent in the business of just taking losses. In other words, they dont run chariteis, then run businessses that rob people of their 401ks and they fucking love doing it. Their closets, when items of theres are no longer being worn and just taking up space are then relocated to one of the various consignment firms that operate out of Vegas, are true menswear expertists, and maintain nationwhide cllientele base and presence. This isn't Linda is what Im saying, and they like this cuz they aren't taking total losses on their investments. That no matter what they will be seeing a return and that these businesses that are located in Vegas have extensive welathy clientele lists with all sizing information and all items wanted ready and waiting on record, so the turn over is almost immediate. So you will never succeed thrfiting that city, ever. But the dream will remain in every thrifter to one day hit the place and they will all thinkk that theyll be the ones with the ocme upand then they will all realize that theres nothing in that city for cheap that is worht spending money on, nothing. So do not bother.

    I thought i would inform the people here first as a favor if they wanted first pics of items instead of a bunch of strangers....but I wasn't even considering on doing that cuz Im not soliciting a sale here, I dont need to make any announcements at all for this shit, I could just do it and the rest would be history quite quickly, I, again was just trying to help out, with purely good intentions cuz im getting nothing out of othis at all, and lett you guys here know of what I will be doing. But fuck it, the act of putting you guys first and allowing you to knowthis so you can search througha nd find stuff to gra for nothing on the ollar when I announce wasn't something nice to let you guys know or by any means an act I would expect a single person to even recognize as me trying to be a nice guy to people here and help you guys out on some awesome shit and give back..a brief glance at the inventory will have things quickly in perspective. My good thrifts charge 5 bucks a tie, so right there im losing on every sale, then im losing on the shipping and ill be loosing even more with the offers of freebies with the more you take.... but fuck it, who cares. Thought I would just try and look out for some people here, again, someting I do for reasons I have no fucking answer to.

    I thought it was just me. I've lived in Vegas for 4 months and I'm disappointed with the results. I've forgotten what a Brioni looks like.
