REAL OR FAKE ? ----WHO CARES?
Please keep in mind the fact that Cris really cleaned these up before the picture was taken.I wish I would have taken a before picture but honestly I didn't see anything there at the time. The shoes were high tops and were bent over in half . DIRTY and CRUDDY dosent even begin to describe how bad these shoes were.
These shoes are made in Italy by the GUCCI company and they are EXTREMELY expensive. I knew that they were a designer shoe but I had no real understanding of just how much a Gucci price tag demands.
After a little Internet research I was aware of two things:
#1 Gucci is expensive and therefore they are copied by knock off companies that produce fakes.
#2 It can be rather difficult to tell the difference between a real and a fake.
- Have serial Numbers? Check.
- Feels like leather? Check.
- Says "Made in Italy " on the inside insert? Check.
- Handsticthed " Crap i dont know. CRIS!"
Don't worry , I had never heard of FOOBLITZKY either. Apparently it an early computer game that flopped hard after being released by computer company Infocom. It actually has some history behind it that can be found on wikipedia. Remember the huge Floppy discs? This one was made for IBM.
Some of the games were made for Apple too and some of them are selling for $150.Mine was missing the dry erase markers and the box is absolutely trashed. I disclosed its condition in my auctions description so I wouldnt run into any unhappy buyers.. It set me back .50 cents at Goodwill. It sold today for $24.99!

The Columbia Jacket -AN Example Of What Not To Do
Lesson #15 - Learned this week. When you find a NICE item , make sure you can photograph it properly. That way you can show the world how special it is.
I was very excited when I found this jacket on the rack for $3.99.It was different and it had the name "Columbia" On the jacket. I know Columbia clothes to be rather pricey anyways but this was different because it also had Verizon embroidered on the front. It also had two embroideries on the back. One said USA LUGE and the other Official USA BOBSLEDDING TEAM 2012 ! Im going to make this short and sweet: If you cant provide the right kind of lighting to photograph your treasures . WAIT UNTIL YOU CAN . The patches were not clearly shown here and I feel i could have done a LOT better here. This could have very well have been an Olympic team members jacket worn during the 2012 olympics. From what we gathered it probably was. Moving on,.
