I just set up a scraper that is pulling through all of my eBay data, and it’s working on every browser except Chrome – these are the console errors I’m receiving: Any idea what I can do to get my shop working on Chrome?
One day back in August or September, the wife and I were hittin up the local Marshall’s and TJ Maxxes… For some reason, I thought it’d be a good idea to pick up these brand new boats on heavy discount: $13 – size 17 KD IV Creamsicles: $10 – size 17 Hyperdunk Elites: $3 –..
I first moved to New York the day after the Blackout of 2003. I think it was around August 15th, 2003. I got off the plane at like 6am after having sat next to some cute chick who hooked me up with a cab ride to Mackay. I literally showed up on the door step..
I love the look of these and have owned probably 7 pairs of III’s…I’ve just never been able to hold onto them for long. I just don’t like them on feet. Not very comfy IMO. I bought this pair for $140, wore them twice, then sold them for $200 a couple of weeks later. Great..
My buddy put this together for me the other day as I was looking over his shoulder…a nice little (Warriors-colored) stamp to add to my ebay photos. I really need to learn some photoshop, though. Anyone know of any good resources out there?
This dude SBTG kinda came outta nowhere and ended up making a pretty big impact on the custom sneaker market. When he first started releasing pairs, I really just thought he was a local (NY) dude trying to make a name for himself…the prices on this kicks were comparable to retail prices and I did..
I love it when I make a sale on ebay. I love ‘cha-ching’ my phone makes when I get a payment. I love seeing how much cash I made. Packing up the shoes and affixing the label is always a pain, but… I ABSOLUTELY LOVE dropping these boxes off at the post office. I walk..
Picked up the other day at NTSF. Didn’t even realize it until Toni pointed it out…gettin kinda sick of Nike. I don’t know if the quality has really gone downhill recently or it’s just something I began noticing when I started picking up other brands.
There used to be a really nice 9-foot hoop behind the Truckee Recs department, which made for some awesome photos for guys like me who couldn’t do anything special on a 10-foot regulation hoop. Cruz and I went out there one day for a nice little photo shoot. Here’s a few few of my favorites:..
Picked up for $39.99, sold a week later for $149.99 + shipping. Probably could have gotten more but these are the kinds of sales I love – fast and profitable.
I purchased a pair of NB M574WCB’s from ebay a few months ago, and when I got them I realized that the sole of one shoe was at least a half inch thicker than the sole of the other. I was pretty pissed off and bummed that I had had spent ebay cash on ebay..
When I first discovered ‘The Great Mall’ in Milpitas back in 1998 or 1999, they had the worst stores imaginable. I don’t know when they decided to smarten up and add some places that people actually wanted to shop at, but I’m glad they did. One Saturday a few months ago, I found myself in..
I had a bit of an obsession with runners back in 2005-2007…funny when you look at my collection now because I really don’t have any left – I sold them all. Anyway, I got these 3 pairs on discount…I don’t remember what they were all sold for, but as usual I probably made out OK…
Another pair from Dan. I barely remember selling these but I think I got around $150 for them. Beat to hell but I could sell water to a whale.
There used to be this great little flea market near Alphabet City on the weekends in the LES. I think it took place in a school parking lot or something…but I always used to always find steals at this place. One day I found some OG Penny (Pippen) Foam Pros…size 11 or 12…in tip top..
Jordan hybrids. Why o why did anyone ever release these monstrosities? And why o why did I think I could make some money off of them? I think I bought each pair for around $20-30 and sold each pair for like $30-40…waste of time.
When I first moved to New York back in 2003, the first friend I made was this dude name Dan who put me onto the sneaker scene. Dan was a cool guy and we had a lot of fun times bouncin around the city checkin out the latest kicks. At the time, he wasn’t the..
I love telling this story because it’s just so ridiculous and nobody ever believes me, but here goes… When I first moved to New York, I wasn’t up on the whole ‘pay ridiculous prices for limited shoes’ kind of thing. I mean, I figured people did it, I just didn’t know how many people were..
As I’ve said before, when I was in college, money was tight. I spent a great deal of my free time hustling and trying to figure out how to keep some cash in my pocket. Gas was only about $1.25-$1.50 at a time so I used to drive often to small jobs here and there…
Shortly after I discovered the joys of bidding on ebay back in 2000 – I discovered that I could SELL items too. Being a broke college student, I was always lookin for ways to make a buck. Back before the first internet bubble burst, there was a website called ‘hoopdreams’ and it was marketed as..
