Junk or Teenager treasure

Never tried to post a pole, no idea how to do it.

I bought this coat back in the late 80's, I call it a "Black Market coat because it "seems like it would have been" handy for that with 5 internal pockets. It's patchwork denim, hand made by Mr. Kim.

I was going to post in on a local web sales site my wife uses, she said "You're not posting that piece of junk" under my name. Said that thing needs to go in the trash, I say it's a one of kind, some teenager would love to have.

I say $100, she says trash can.

If it is very sentimental, or some cool "remember when" moments while wearing it, I would keep it. And you may never wear it again, but you might have some cool memories.

If it were me, donate it, fast.

You could probably get more than a $100.

This I can part with even though it IS a VERY kewl coat.

It's the box of German beer steins and mugs that I can't part with, stuff has been in the attic since the late 90's...too may German mammary's attached to those.

Hell, I'm surprised that KidA, who is truly the resident Dapper Dan throwback, hasn't at least asked what size it might be...

I hope you sell it. I'm curious to see if it sells and for how much.
Who knows, maybe some of us have a small fortune tucked away in our closet?

It's all in how you market the item...

Custom Made, Concealed Carry five pocket design, with Mongolian Mink lining...

Get Creative man... I saw a Guy selling a Mosin BOX for $200 on a Facebook page today... the write up was so hilarious, I almost hit him up to see what he would take in trade (I was offering a Barely fucked Chicken).
