    Ironic that you thrift in Nashville and were sent those I&Ws. I've found just as much I&W outside of Nashville as inside myself...only two pieces each though.

    Oddly enough, I've never thrifted any IW, and both pair of Bartons I've owned came from outside Nashville. The pair I actually wear are from Steven Alan.

    Same, and I had one in my cart too! Sold out by the time I tried adding a second, different jacket.

    Honestly? the price varies widely, with the key being to sift through them all for the best deal. i normally pay $10 or under for a Tee. with my Number(N)ine x Disney being the exception. NWT for $30, retailing at over $180. so.. 20% of retail? Flannels can be had starting at around $10. going up to $80 for a NWT Flat head type item. jackets are all over the place. but a general rule of thumb is: NWT, or NWOT will run you 60% of retail. if you are savvy, and know a little more about the items than the shop pricers? - i can walk into a shop lined with Grails, and walk out paying 20-30% on jeans, and Jackets for personal use. by finding the genuine best deals on offer, meeting the criteria for what i need. or what others have requested.

    so, unless a member happens to find a rare item in a goodwill? perhaps only ever once? i can find it 24/7, at the best prices you can hope to find. and i can guarantee that i can beat your "e-thrift" prices, or your "Consignment shops" on SW&D grails, 90% of the time. because while in the 'States, you might get lucky at times, i simply assess what infront of me is the best value.

    Items make their way into my shops because here, it costs money to recycle or donate items. so instead of paying to dump stuff, people will accept the bottom dollar for stuff. because hey, getting a dollar is better than paying a dollar. [​IMG] really, you only get a dollar for stuff. so you can't do the buffalo hustle. bought at insultingly low prices. and sold at reasonable prices. giving me the monopoly on grail items at the best prices .

    This is true. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    False, there are NO Consignment shops in Japan. and, no "Goodwill's". it is in fact an entirely different business model.

    imagine a Wallmart, with wall to wall awesome, at brag worthy e-thrift prices. -it is a Japanese "Recycle shop". ie:Thrift shop. (used, unwanted goods going cheap)
    i never pay retail. i can get it cheaper than you, (unless you get lucky)
    And i thrift absolutely everything i buy. including the Computer i am typing this reply on right now, kopped at 20% of retail. a Sony Vaio S model.
    i look at all venues,including from shops here, from shopgoodwill, and from Rakuten/Yahoojapan.

    i get the best SW&D on the planet. at the best prices in general.

    hope this clears things up a little. [​IMG]
