Latest purchase..Powerbilt Cart bag from Goodwill bright orange

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think it's so ugly it's beautiful.

 

I won't say what I paid, but I know its worth substantially more than I paid. Very sturdy construction/stitching. They don't make them like this anymore. No rips, or tears in the leather and all zippers work great. The rain hood tops it off (No pun intended).This will probably be on the Bay before too long, although I'm half tempted to keep it. I would never take it to the course, because it screams for attention that my game doesn't deserve. I would put it in an office or den as a club storage container of sorts. I thought it was quite a find.

That is a cool find. I am a big supporter of Goodwill in particular, but thrift shops in general are fun places to shop from time to time.

If it were me, I might be tempted to keep it and maybe use it to store an old set or spare clubs instead of just having them lay around in a corner or closet.

I like The classic styling and leather construction. Grab some persimmon woods and old blades and go play some vintage golf ....pimp style. f1_cool.gif

I was browsing the "vintage" golf gear on ebay and came across this. Granted this is a Staff bag with all the accessories, but daaaaayum!!! $285bugout.gif

I don't have the "game" to do it and probably wouldn't anyway--too orange.  But I do like the old vintage style bags-reminds me of the good ole days.

 

I think I might keep it to keep extras in--but for $285 she'd be GONE!

 

My main cart gamer is a huge white PING staff bag that I don't have the game for either--but I bought it for $6 at a church yard sale.

Thats sweet...cooler that anything at the Goodwill in the town near me... being in that store feels like being in a huge dirty public bathroom that is never cleaned...They did have a big putting carpet but they wanted a lot for it unless that wasnt their tag.

Saw a guy with the same bag last weekend at tahquits in palm springs , I thought it was pretty cool. Hope you have been using yours and enjoying it.

I think that big old staff bag eventually went for $170.

 

Mine is currently on the bay. I doubt it'll go for the current price, but we'll see. I will probably just end up keeping it.

As for the unclean dirty comment. I feel the same, that's why they make soap and water.rolleyes.gif

 

I feel especially dirty when I walk out with a steal of a bargain!! Just the other day my wife bought an old pentax camera ($60-$100) for $2. Some people just don't bother with looking up the value of their old "junk".

I don't consider taking something to Goodwill (or Salvation Army or Value Village or Bibles For Missions) to be losing out on money. I consider it a donation to charity, albeit one without a tax receipt. It makes me feel better than fielding 50 emails to possibly have someone take enough interest to haggle over a $10 item. Some people live to haggle. Me not so much.

Goodwill gives out receipts for tax purposes if you care to take one.

 

You make a good point. It is a donation to charity.

 

As for haggling, I'm a cheapskate, so it comes with the territory I guess.

I'm a Truck Driver for Goodwill and you would be surprised at the quality of some of the GOLF Equipment we get donated!! The prices are really cheap also. I suggest to everyone, go to your local Goodwill and see what they have.
