    Thought I'd struck out today, but as I was walking out of the last store, I spotted a guy loading a cart with artwork, so I asked if I could have a look. A bunch of nice, hand-colored etchings I convinced the guy to keep, and made him an offer on this one:

    The rest were decent things I may pick up if the store prices them low enough.

    First up, a very nice Shetland sweater by Pringle of Scotland. No size on it, but it would easily fit a L to XL. Saddle shoulders for you purists, made in the UK and in great condition!



    Chest: 24"
    Sleeve: 26"
    Length: 30"

    Next up is tradish but may be of some interest..
    A vintage YSL blazer in gaberdine. It is darted with side vents, patch pockets and fully lined. It's a very nice blazer and if it were a tad bigger I'd probably keep it. It's made in France and the buttons have the YSL logo on them.
    Size about a 40 short



    Chest: 21"
    Sleeve" 23" with 1" to let out
    Length: 29"

    A very nice pair of Johnson & Murphy tassel loafers. I'm pretty sure that these are the "Aragon 2" model. They are more burgundy than the photos show. They are in excellent condition, the soles look almost new.

    Size 9 1/2 med

    If you're smelling something French it might be the buttload of cheese I brought back from the motherland [​IMG]

    So with these art pickups, are we talking $5 $50 or $500? Nothing that nice ever comes through the thrifts here.

    Art pricing is largely arbitrary and generally relies heavily on the notoriety of the artist. A gallery price is usually 2-3 times an auction value, but could also depend on the reputation and location of a gallery--though, as we've seen with Spoo on occasion, there is the chance for a bidding war with an auction.

    Say, for example, I had a world renowned gallery in Key West and carried a few pieces by Jack Baron, a notable Key West folk artist. Depending on the size and subject of the piece, I could ask into the thousands for it and easily get it from a tourist who wants a one-of-a-kind memento from his/her trip. However, since I'm only on eBay at the moment, I opted to take the $400 offer on a Jack Baron painting I had up, which went to a Jack Baron collector in Sarasota.

    The etchings were probably (didn't catch the artist) in the $50 area on eBay , whereas a local dealer could probably have gotten closer to the $500 if he waited for the right buyer.

    Whelp, I was so stoked to find this one, eager both to detourn a bit of the old evil iconography and to give a shout-out to Alex P. Keaton all in one go, but alas...it's already just a shitty mass-market hipster thing. Oh well. Still good for the beach.
