    haha no.
    he meant "sell it to a forum member for half of whatever the prevailing ebay rate is, develop goodwill, then reap the benefits in the long run"


    i was stoked.

    Best advice i can give you and it's not meant to sound like a jerk, but go back and read a few thousand posts. It will make you a better thifter and also not look like a total noob who hasnt put in any effort

    +1 IMO it's one thing for someone who has been here a while to ask a legit question about a random item price/etc on ebay (I do this myself from time to time, while I am bragging that I found the damn thing) but someone with under 20 (50?) posts to just ask stupid how much is my item worth questions, I personally think they are just illiterate and can't read the title of the thread.

    This is correct. Thanks Mexiterpreter.

    No offense, but post count is irrelevant. You're creating a distinction where one shouldn't exist.

    Are you Neiman Marcus? Are they new in box? Nobody ( except Spoo sometimes) get retail for stuff on eBay, and especially not if it's not new in box / with tags.

    No, that's awesome. I don't respond to every post I think is cool. I kopped Quoddy's at a thrift store for $10, cleaned 'em up, and flipped 'em for $70 even though they were pretty worn.

    Right, but the suggestion was to sell for half of what you could get. You couldn't even get half of retail on eBay.

    Don't do that. If it's made in Italy pick it up. If it's made in the USA it can be good too.
