      Found this in a 44 L at a true thrift. It didn't see a lot of wear at all:

        and this piece that's very close to being perfect







        Full canvas, 100% thick cashmere, wood buttons, crazy lining, but...



        Unvented. Dammit.

        Unvented...so what did you do with it? What does everyone say about unvented jackets? I just thrifted one for $3. Fits like a glove. Literally my best-fitting jacket, but it's unvented.

          What defines a 'high end thrift store', and how do I find one near me?

              I would say it's location primarily. Thrift stores located in wealthy areas tend to have higher end items.

                        Just snagged a nice silver/blue Michael Kors tie at TJ Maxx for $4.99! Original price on it was $49.50, TJ Maxx had it priced at $10.99. There was a small imperfection in the fabric, which I pointed out to the cashier, & she knocked it all the way down to $4.99!

                        What I neglected to mention to her was that I tried on the tie, and it just so happens that the imperfection falls right under the knot when it's around my neck...Score!

                          Good to know that you can do that.

                            Man I worked in retail for 9 years, and I've learned that it never hurts to just ask. I'm not saying to be a tightwad and ask for discounts on everything, but when there's something wrong with the product then 9 times out of 10 a place like TJ Maxx will discount it more just to move it out of the store. Besides, worst case scenario is that she says no, and I still get a nice tie for $11.

                              This makes me think of Act One from This American Life, the "good guy" discount, ha --> http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radi.../515/good-guys

                                Pendleton Aztec robe 100% cotton green and rust colored. $9.99 from savers. Retail was $179.
                                Salvatore ferragamo burgundy and navy strip tie. $2.99 sold it on eBay for $20. Brooks brothers seven fold tie. Few cool things. Hand knit polo wool cashmere fisherman sweater.

                                Some good flips thus far for me on eBay. Saving all the cash and not spending!
