Not to persist in being a buzzkill, but I would suspect that most guys who would sneer at thrifting aren't buying used clothes to start with. The nice stuff would disappear from the thrift forum just as fast as in regular B&S, unless you really insisted on trades. Then, I imagine, things would slow way down. But I'd be pretty irritated if there was something I wanted and had nothing to trade, or the other guy traded it to someone else while we were negotiating. Maybe you guys could start a thread in B&S and see how it goes? My reluctance is just having yet another forum to check, especially when I suspect it won't get that much traffic, in terms of items posted.
