    Hey guys, new here. Been lurking for a few months. I found some Ferragamos today at a thrift store that aren't in great condition. I may keep them, as they fit me well (12 A- I am actually an 11B but it works) but Id like to see what I would get for them on the open market. Sorry about the quality of the photos, Im not awesome at it.

    Welcome to the thread. "How much can I sell these for?" is a question not likely to ingratiate you with regulars here, you'll know if you've been lurking. Your best bet is to check eBay.

    Careful, or he will find you.

    Edit: Wait better joke

    Too bad completed listings searches isn't part of his specials skills.

    That sounded better in my head.

    I should have phrased it, 'How much has the wear and tear lowered the value of the shoes?' Because I havent seen wingtip ferragamos on ebay with scuffs on the heel and toe like this.
    Also I wanted to share my excitement/brag about finding Ferragamos at a thrift store.

    We can't give you a dollar amount. You'll get whatever bidders happen to be willing to pay when you list them. Disclose clearly the degree of wear in your auction and cross your fingers. Try the eBay thread for selling tips.

    And enjoy your find. Didn't mean to sound like a dick...just trying to point you in the right direction.

    Yeah, I was excited at the find but then bummed when it didn't fit. But you can't complain for $1!

    Facconable Wool Cashmere jacket. Fits me well and I love the fabric/pattern, but I'm not too fond of the slim lapels. Keeping for now.
