Value Village picks.
« on: February 21, 2013, 10:57:39 AM »
Did well picking last night.
Did a donation and got a $3 coupon.  Went in a got:

Brand new Cuisinart rice cooker for $10, $80 retail.
A vintage Puma sweat suit for $12.99, eBay goes in the $60-$100 range.
Real, brand new with tags, Coach clutch for $19.99, retail is $120.  But it's last years line so sure you can get it online/outlet/macys for $80-ish.
Fake Coach duffle bag for$9.99.


Tho, my sister already has her eye on the Coach gear.  Note to self: hide name brand bags from sister! :-[


Best fake I've seen in a while.  CC lines up.  Lining is correct. Stitching is correct. Fasteners are brass, embossed and no weld marks.  Even leather and fabric is pretty dang close.....

But the zippers are wrong and inside label doesn't have a serial number.  Other than that you need to examine it to tell its fake.

Got a cheese board, brand new, for $3.99.

sears (dot) com/picnic-time-festiva-cheese-board-w-tools-square/p-SPM6764235303?prdNo=18&blockNo=18&blockType=G18

Also a Italian made grey camel hair sports coat for $6.99
Nikon tripod for $4.99
Made in Japan tea kettle for $4.99.

With $3 coupon it came to just under $20.

Already sold tripod for $20 so I'm even. 
Hope to get $15-$20 for cheese board. 
$20-$30 for coat.  I'd like to keep it but it *just*  fits so will try to sell it.  If not, lady at Sunday market should give me at least what I paid for it. Its her type of thing.

Researching kettle.   Looks old and all that but not sure.   They've mass produced so much, even if its old it may still be worthless.  But I liked it so took gamble. Worse case,  I like tea.  Maybe this will get me to make it properly and not just stick a mug in the microwave......

Today I got a Arc'Teryx Bora 70 backpack in pretty good condition for $10.  Has additional packs attached. Should get $50-$75 on CL.   I'd ebay it for more but it does have wear and would prefer the person examine it before buying.

Also got a sweet copper mixing bowl for $2.   Haven't fully examined it to tell quality but its heavy and hardly used. No wisk marks or dents.  If its one that sells for over $50 I'll sell.  If its a $20-30ish one I'll keep.  Rather have money but a nice mixing bowl would look nice in my kitchen.

I had the $3 off for making donation so mixing bowl was free...pack $9.

Almost got a backpack 4person picnic set for $20.  Never used. Assesories still in plastic.
Glad I passed.  Looked it up later and sells new for $29.99. 


Other than the two good finds I was disappointed.  Store was pretty empty and prices were really high.
Thrift store across the street was bad.  The goodwill was filled with stuff that if we found it in a locker we would dump.  I couldn't believe some of the items for sale.  Ripped couches.  Desks with missing drawers.
And my favorite....a bucket of cracked golf balls!  Why would you buy cracked golf balls?  Art project?

That's funny. I'm not sure what's up with BWD lately. He's been making these short replies to almost every post. Maybe he's just in a hurry to get to 1000 posts so he can get "whale" status and join the secret (until now) Society Of Auction Profesionals....also known by it's acronym S.O.A.P.   :D
