Thrift Store Item 2 Sell - VTG B3 Bomber Jackets

This item is probably a HTF thrift item, I am not 100% sure yet because I have never really looked for them in the past. I'm looking now. Maybe someone out there has found them in the past. Let me know if you have and how you did?

I stumbled across this one because 1 of the the Salvation Army Thrift Stores in my area was having a sale on all their winter coats and sweaters. $2.00 for coats and $1.00 for sweaters. I picked up a 3 coats and a bunch of wool and cashmere sweaters. What a deal!!!!

Here's my auction:

I do admit I was a little disappointed with the sale, I was hoping for $150.00+ but still a nice profit for a $2.00 purchase with the Jacket selling for $50.99. So this might be something you want to add to your Thrift Store Shopping List, because if you research eBay some sell for $200.00+

If you do come across a B-3 Bomber Jacket make sure you pack and weigh it before you list it. They are very heavy and will need a bigger box (probably 18x12x12) and chances are it will sell internationally. So you don't want to under estimate the weight, because their is a good shot you will be shipping this Priority Mail International.

Good Luck

Also you should make sure you have identified the jacket properly and that it is authentic. There are plenty of online resources for checking on this.
