Obviously I'm the only one on the buying/selling threads making a profit on my items and the rest of you guys are all chumps doing it for next to nothing.
BTW if anyone is a 36X30 I came across 4 pairs of BB Madison pants (not orphans, all look pretty unworn, flat fronts no cuffs) black, khaki, light brown and medium grey.
Sorry to derail the thread....now back to waiting for Darkmatter's next huge daily score.
Will someone post said thread?
Shit like this makes my blood boil. It's like demanding that Saks charge you what THEY paid for an item. It may be a surprise to some of the folks that lurk this thread, but I don't spend time hunting down quality items so that I can simply pass them on to you for my original purchase price.
It's the NWT tie megathread in his sig... wait... what happened to it?
I've really been digging the stories in this thread, and getting schooled on which brands are worth looking for.
I visited two thrift stores this morning, and faired pretty well:
Aquascutum Blazer, my size. Excellent condition. $5
Burberry's and Luciano Barbera shirts, my size. $5 each
A Brooks Brothers and two NWT Jos A Bank ties (those are going on Ebay). $10 for all.
And a book of facts about Chuck Norris (just for the heck of it). $2
Damit, I had a good response to that one. I'm glad the mods cleaned it up though. That guy was a stupid lawyer.
hah, I am glad they did clean it up though. He was distracting people from a good deal on ties
Does thrifting then flipping undo the good that was done by the donating of the wares in the first place?
No way... The thrift store still get the charity proceeds. So what if someone else makes a few bucks flipping it? They money I make flipping stuff gets dumped back into the economy anyway.
How so? You give your money to the charity thrift shop. They hopefully do something good with that money.
Seriously, you always find something good.
I really wanted today to be great, so I'm a bit disappointed. I need to catch up on schoolwork the next few days, and I won't be thrifting as much
