I haven’t done one of these posts in a while, and the last couple months have been pretty fruitful on the eBay front. I’ve gotten discretionary in terms of what I buy from any and all second-hand shopping. Whether Goodwill, flea markets, estate sales, or eBay, I have really set the bar high in terms of what makes it into my shopping bag.
Well, I’ve gotten lucky lately, so I thought I’d share.
First, this Hunter’s Shirt from Ball and Buck. This was a really rare edition they did for Garden & Gun, and the Interwebs really took to this one, including this guy. I couldn’t believe one came available in my size, and the BIN price of $20 was a no-brainer:
My post-work and weekend attire has really become Baggies-heavy. I wear them all the time. I have one or two pairs that I bought new, but most of mine have been found second hand, or on eBay. I really like the vintage colors that they don’t offer anymore. I got a couple pairs that knocked it out of the park, both for under $20 a pair. First – this purplish/blue pair from Pebble Beach. While these might not be ‘Baggies’ in the truest sense, the pleats are really set them apart:
Second, a grail find for me – Green. Real green. For some reason, the only greens Patagonia has released recently are aqua or lime. Tell me that these hunter green baggies aren’t incredible?:
I’ve been a fan of Petrified Goods for a while, and really dig their Baggies that feature a bunch of dancing bears. The $90 price tag is a little much for me, and being that I never back down from a challenge, I’m sure there’s a pair of baggies that this $2 bear patch will enjoy.
I bought this $7 hat for the patch, but it turns out that the hat fits really well. I’m really excited to get comments on this one:
I actually get quite a bit of my fishing stuff on eBay. They have an excellent selection, and usually reasonable prices. Now, for the majority of my fishing life, I’ve been a Zoom Pumpkinseed work guy. The work in almost every single weather or water condition, and have yielded some serious results. Recently I stopped a sporting goods store that had a huge sale happening on their fishing tackle. I grabbed a couple bags of ‘Cajun Craw’, and have been SLAYING bass with these. However, I couldn’t find them anywhere. Until an eBay search turned up these two bags for $3/bag:
Lastly, this is a find that is a once-in-a-year type find. I haven’t really been into shell cordovan like I used to, but it hasn’t left my radar. I caught these Ralph Lauren X Crockett & Jones Marlow loafers in Cigar Shell for a really low price. I made an offer that I thought was super low, but they accepted it. Really low. Cole Haan-level low. I absolutely love them. Much more to come on these, as they will need a little work.
Have you had any good finds lately?
