At the total risk of belabouring a point, is OLK serious? Ten random books, covered with copies of old maps. OKL total – $379, reduced from the original $580. My total – $3.76. That would be ten free books from the Book Thing and about $3.76 worth of copying some old maps I have at the house. Ohhh, maybe add about $10 worth of my time for cutting and wrapping the books. Seriously!Four 1900’s vintage wood tennis racquets. OKL – originally $480, now down to $279. My price – $20. Four racquets from the Goodwill @ $5.00 each. And they don’t even need to be restrung.
We used to have a big trash can at our house growing up and it was filled with things like wooden lacrosse sticks handed down from cousins, old wooden tennis racquets with the wooden presses, also handed down, and a polo mallet or two, from gawd only knows where. I should have saved all of that stuff to sell to fund my old age!
It’s getting so I can barely read the OKL Tastemaker Tag sales because some of the prices are so insane. To be fair though, Nina Griscom did have some lovely and very well-priced items on the OKL sale this evening.
