1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I know it's probably not the best price I could have collected, but for a shirt with this level of pit stains, I'm pretty stoked to get rid of it at this rate...

    I had a friend get laid off from Cisco Systems making ~75K a year, 2 weeks later they hired him back as a contractor at 125K. Something to think about, tell them you will work 10 - 15 hrs per week at double your old salary from home.

    Honestly an IT firm would have a minimum charge time, at least an hour, if not two.

    And as you probably know, billing rates of 100$ an hour for consulting is well within the realm of reason.

    So bill em a minimum time of 2 hours at 100 bucks an hour.

    And as for Spoo, he may be able to flip something we couldn't sell for a dollar....but the only reason he can do that is he has flipped thousands of LEGIT things we couldn't imagine getting our hands on. He has a combination of history, followers, volume, and quality of goods, as well as a finely polished listing style. It all creates a brand....

    When I left my previous job, they asked if I would be available for the occasional question / bit of work, and we agreed on 3x my hourly rate billed in hourly increments (minimum 1 hour). If you were salary, divide by 2080 to figure your hourly. It kept them from bugging me too much but also made it worth my while when they did.


    My last auction netted me a whole two followers (email marketing subscribers) on eBay. Which is 2 more than I had last week, so it's a start I suppose. I wouldn't even know what to send out in any sort of "email marketing"...and yet I work in marketing / market research - hah!

    So I picked up the BLK Denim stuff. Does anyone know anything about this brand? Seem to be kind of high-end designer SWD stuff but would be interested to know if any of you guys have experience.

    Two of these - super long (I'm looking at you Ian) DB peak lapel coats. Working cuff buttons, storm button on the vent, really heavy and warm. Retail $975

    Of all the stuff posted recently, this makes me the most jelly - I've got a small collection of vintage Hamilton watches, and would love to get my hands on a newer one. Great find.

    Was HUGE baseball card collector as a kid in the 90's (94-2005)

    All the books with players in alphabetical order + 8 large 5K count boxes on the floor to be sorted and put away.

    My "wall" of cards. All stuck on with velcro. Couple of grand in "beckett value" back in the early 2000's

    I think J Lindberg is behind this label and I think it's only a couple years old. I've never handled it in person those jackets look very nice and I too would have picked them up.

    I know of the label, but can not speak of the quality or the resale value. It is a label started by J Lindeberg; who makes mediocre stuff. His stuff got quite popular in the club scene a while back and everybody had the JL logo everywhere.

    Hey dude, wish I'd seen the post sooner. The black double breasted coat looks alright but I'm not sure I'd pick up Blk Dnm. It's a Johan Lindeberg line, quality from what I've seen is OK and the pieces seem to be hit or miss. But if you like it, right on.
