Saturday sales didn’t look that great. Labor Day weekend (or any holiday weekend) can be sort of a drag, since most people leave town — including Jenny, this time. Karl was going to come meet me, but since it seemed like so few sales I told him that he shouldn’t even bother driving across town.
The first sale that I hit turned out to be really good. They had would I would call “high-end-normal-clothes” meaning stuff that I wear to my job, but I won’t pay $48 for at J. Crew. She had a bunch of nice stuff, so I filled a bag (along with getting a really nice Burberry belt for $20 –- something I would never purchase retail) I had spent $60 and it wasn’t even 8:40 in the morning.
The next sale that started at 8:30 wasn’t even happening, so I thought I would drive by one that didn’t list a time just to see if they were ready. The ad said “moving to Japan” (which usually means getting rid of everything) and tons of women’s clothing. Well, her taste was pretty bad (tons of clothing from Wet Seal, worn out H&M, etc.) but he was into horror/gore and good comic books and movies. Most of it wasn’t unpacked yet, so it was cool to be the first one there. The guy below spent the whole time on the phone asking a friend about the boxes of comics that he should or shouldn’t buy to resell.
In the very large free pile I picked up a free men’s tux. I figure even just for Halloween that was worthy.
I was also really into his bulletin board – I mean I don’t want to own stuff that someone saved like this, but to see the entire thing preserved is sort of cool.
I purchased a ton of books and movies here, but after this it was pretty much a bust.
Tons of kids stuff -– no thank you.
Great signs, but your sale doesn’t have anything good.
I finally gave up at 10:15.
