    Only one decent find recently. This is a thing, right @Nataku? No size tag, but seems like a small or medium. Minty and available.

    @Woofa those peek-a-boo ties do have some collectors. The only one I found was really hardcore and vintage - like 1970s Hustler / Screw / Oui / Cheri.

    Damn @Thrift Vader how much $ did all that set you back?

    The non-suiting part of your paragraph pretty much perfectly describes one of my local shops.

    Yea that's what I'm saying, I got 2 spots in town that you can walk in any given day and find Commes des Garcon, Yohji, Junya, Geller, Thom Browne etc.. but it's resale, not true thrift. The prices are still really good for the stuff, definetley not worth buying to sell, margins are way too small, but definitely amazing deals.

    I actually found a few of his ties in thrift shops over the past several years. From what I recall he ended up getting his business off the ground and even had some local news anchors wearing his ties.


    Indeed it is. Nice pick-up! Great color, too. :slayer:

    This shop tends to get down to thrift levels or bellow, quite often mate. I hardly ever step foot in the resale shop in town, it's far too expensive.

    FLIP can be good for some eBay fodder every now and then.

    It's funny, I've never actually bought anything from the men's side, and only sold through the women's side, but the owner knows me, and knows what I am in town. He, I, and most of the employees there run into each other often out and about.

    They keep trying to get me to consign with them, but they just dont really have the appeal I want, and their terms are not so good.

    Quick stop while out running errands; no clothing, grabbed a couple books tho:

    [​IMG]

    Punk book is cool, not worth anything. The other book is this one:


    [​IMG]

    ...two other copies are active right now - one is $179, the other is $325. Not bad for $2.92 + tax.


    Probably the coolest thing I discovered this week:
    After I got home I went to look them up on eBay, and found that the barcode scanner on the eBay app does a good job of finding matches (assuming the same item is listed or had been recently ended on eBay, that it had a barcode, and that the seller entered the barcode in their listing).
    Next time I'm in GW I'm gonna run up & down the book aisles, scanning barcodes for a while - see if I get any good hits.

    There are a couple of people that do this at the local used media depot. All day, every day, and come out with boxes of books
