but yet, people will buy old brass or wood that you couldn't give away 20 years years ago because the world was going to constant air and semi?
trends are trends because one person wants it, and another has to have it. if you can predict what and when an item will be cool, then you'd be rich.
i have a sandana that i couldn't give away, flying skulls with the original tag. when they became cool, i know i was ahead of the curve. i could sell it, but it doesn't matter to me.sometimes i like the fact that i have a $200 head wrap and a $75+ strap.
so just shake your head and walk away. no one invites you into the room, you walk through the doors yourself.
