    Well I am moving from quantity to quality, and I figure if I receive a few quality ties for these, someone here could benefit from all of these at the same time whether it be for personal use, of financial gain. Just want to pay if forward to someone.

    Obviously it is impossible to compete with the other worldly hauls this weekend. So, I will state ahead of time: "This group is merely interesting and does NOT represent epic hauls that you will tell your grandchildren about."


    I'm not sure how many still wear Double Breasted Suits. But, this is an exceptionally nice Burberry DB.

    As soon as I saw this I knew I had to buy it. If it was my size, I would definitely keep it with the idea that I might wear it someday. Although, I am not sure I would have the guts to wear a Pink SC.



    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I am not familiar with the Maker or the Store label, but this thing appears to have ZERO wear. It is in amazing condition. It is also very well made. Natural Shoudlers, great fabric, gorgeous.

    Its almost Football Season! I'm a Redskins fan and I always liked Chris Cooley (who is not playing anymore). I sold a few other Redskins jerseys previously that went for good money.

    A very cool Padres Vintage look Jersey.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This thing is amazing. Big, NWT, thick stitching and embroidery. I think this could be GREAT or a total bust.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    only my second SULKA tie

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    When I saw this tie, I thought it looked like a nice tie.

    [​IMG]

    Then, I saw this part of the label:

    [​IMG]

    But, alas, this was not quite the find I thought it was at first:


    [​IMG]

    My wife has made a TON of money recently on women's perfume. AND I'm not talking about the obvious brands. I mean discontinued cheaper brands that she has sold for $90-100! Its crazy!

    So, at an auction on Saturday, this was one of the frangrances she bought (bought it for me to sell). She bought a whole shoe box of fragrances for a few dollars. This is a men's fragrance. This particular one sells for $30-50 even for a partial bottle! The last box of perfume she bought for $8 she made $780 selling and still has 1/3 of the bottles left.

    [​IMG]

    I like political buttons, but for the most part they aren't worth much. I bought two buttons for $2 and was hoping the Jimmy Carter might go up.

    [​IMG]

    This was the one I really wanted. It has a 1978 Copyright. I don't know if its worth anything, but growing up in Missouri, I always like George Brett even though I'm a Cardinals fan.

    [​IMG]

    Another Auction find (true thrift price). A NEW Spyderco knife! These are easy money!

    [​IMG]

    This was another Auction find. Its a collection of OLD Boy Scout Medals. Most people would care at all. EXCEPT, there is something very special about the old Eagle Scout Medals. Can you guess?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Harley Ebay Fodder

    [​IMG]


    I thought this was a POP for me. I almost always buy Harley Shirts. AND this one is from the HD in Columbia Missouri (where the Mizzou is located). Since, I'm a Mizzou alum, I was very excited to find especially in my size! BUT, unfortunately, it is way too big (horizontally) and way too short vertically.

    [​IMG]

    A fun vintage Atari shirt

    [​IMG]

    More Harley ebay Fodder

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I can't tell if this is real vintage or a repro because the tag is gone. There is NOT another tag anywhere.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    A BB uni stripe. WIDE blue and white stripes.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ok, Polo experts, Did I find

    1. Nothing special
    2. A fake
    3. something great.

    It has a strange tag. I wasn't sure what to think about it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Here's a little something for the car guys:


    This was at a shop down the street from my office. I have gotten to know the manager. I saw this beauty and had to stop and ask about it.


    Its a 1971 Dodge Challenger CONVERTIBLE with the 440 Six Pack, shaker hood and absolutely perfect total restoration. My friend called the owner to double check on his price.

    $155,000! Too rich for me. But, the owner did say I could drive it (with him in the car with me).

    @Nobleprofessor, love that Atari shirt... A friend's dad was one of the creators of Pong, so I get to hear a lot about the old days of Atari.

    i thought that perfume denatured if stored in less than ideal conditions...

    i never bothered with the fragrances etc. maybe i should start looking hard at that stuff.

    I know one of the perfumes she sold was the early 80's. It had been opened, but was full. It still smelled. I have only sold one bottle (and only listed one) and it was from 2009. It still smelled good. It had been opened also, but was full.

    Some very nice ties! I really like the Polo. BUT, do people still buy Bert Pulitzer ties? I see them ALL THE TIME at EVERY THRIFT STORE.
