No returns?
I'm with k on the lock and tag may be real. Also the strap may be as well , I think it's been replaced. Is there a stamp on the shoulder pad section?

Strap definitely didn’t come with it. Hardware looks like shit tho and the patina isn’t looking right, you can compare to the pic of the tag below it, the red edge seal looks sloppy and off color too. The tag I’m pretty sure is good tho

Busy day yesterday: my favorite consignment stores had their twice-yearly progressive sale, and I just go in on the first 70%-off day and have a blast. Result: over 100 items, PPU $10. It will keep me (and Cap'n Wes) busy for a bit.

I'm working double shifts right now, but will get started on these on my days off. Here are a few bits and pieces.

Bullhide MiUSA Dopp kit and tie case, for me.

Ties. That Brioni in the middle is the first pleated Brioni I've seen. Wild. And I expect will flip handily.

Nope. They're vintage and I personally would've grabbed. Idk what margins you're after, etc though. What size were they?
Size 34, fit me in the waist but way too long, guess i could hem them for personal use. They were priced 139 SEK = (14 dollares). I don't really flip anything, I just buy to expand my own wardrobe.

My 3 year old son is obsessed with rolling suitcases so If he sees one at a thrift we have no choice but to buy it or shit escalates really quickly, this one luckily had an easy $20 bill attached to it

definitely fake, the wand should be 3.57" long, looks like its only 3.56". Also the green stars on the front should be Pantone color 346 these are definitely 345. If you count the squares in the background pattern this bag has 1055 which is a super big tell as these bags always have 1050.

Gorgeous. What is the weight like? I think those were a maple/walnut.
Heavier than I expected, haha. It is quite substantial. I am still researching it but so far I know it’s a win as it has the original tuners that are highly sought after and near impossible to find. Some minor dings but nothing drastic.

Sadly I don’t play, but an employee does and when he saw it he got more excited than usual and asked if he could play around with it before I got rid of it.

Any guitar experts care to weigh in on how/why it has different controls/switches? Comparing to others online it seems like they all randomly have different arrangements of knobs. All custom made? There doesn’t appear to be a standard layout... so as a novice I don’t know if my setup is more desirable or not.
