If anyone has some wimmenz cash gloves, shoot me a PM.
Simple numbers spread sheet, price paid, price sold, days listed, etc. I use the row number as the item number so when something sells I can find it quickly.
Proper thread for that is here, there have been many discussions on that. As they say read the whole thing.
Me, too. Every estate sale where its a very nice house and you can tell the couple was wealthy. I'm always thinking to myself, Ok, there was a St. John suit in the closet, so she had to have bought an Hermes scarf at some point. But, alas, it is always full of Anne Klein, or Echo, or no name scarves. I still have not found a real Hermes. I have found a couple fakes that were obvious, but never the real thing.
This might go without saying...
But if you list on eBay be sure to mention that it is Polartech. I didn't realize it was a thing, but one day I listed two Patagonia vests (one was a Retro-X and one was a normal looking Polartech) and I couldn't believe how many more views/follows the Polartech one got, in spite of it not being as "cool" of a vest as the Retro-X (in my opinion)
All of that was a great haul! But, I love finding Hartmann luggage and briefcases and Haliburton Briefcases! I have never seen the black Haliburton only the silver and the gold. Very cool!
Off topic Coffee Talk
Not this kind of Coffee Talk:
My brother bought a house a couple years ago and it has a fancy built in Coffee maker. It makes regular coffee or it also makes cappucino or other fancy drinks. I don't know what brand it is. But, between the time of the contract and closing on the house, something went wrong with the coffee maker and the seller had to take it out and send it to the shop. It cracked me up that a coffee maker has to go to a shop for repairs. I made fun of him for him. Then, I had a cup of the coffee. Damn! It does make freaking great coffee and now I am just jealous that he has it. I am still on the search for a coffee maker that doesn't cost more than my old car that will grind the beans and make a cup of coffee from the freshly ground beans.
It's been a bit dry around here for me but I thought this J.Press was really cool, a slim 42 with suede elbow patches.
I'm somewhat new to the thrifting scene so please excuse my ignorance.
Do people ever buy an orphan jacket and hope to find the corresponding pants later in life? It's so rare to find a full suit at any of the thrift shops near me.
Depends on the make and colour of the jkt I reckon.
Yes, if the orphan is a very very high quality brand and could probably make $20-30 on its own as an orphan. I have only been successful once out of about 10 tries.
Anyone heard of W.K. Backhouse? Barbour owned brand made in NZ. Looks like a nice coat but doesn't seem to do well on eBay.
Authenticity check. @SpooPoker or anyone else. These are fake as hell, right?
Yes and no.
Anybody know this logo?
