    Default Think there would be any interested in a specialty items for sale thread?

    As I was looking through my watch case last night, I got to thinking...which can sometimes be a bad thing.

    Do you guys think there is room on this site of a specialty sales section. I have a watch or two I would be willing to part with for cash, bike stuff, other collectibles, etc. I also have other cool stuff (vintage cufflinks, etc) that someone else might want to put to good use, trade, etc.

    This may come across as sounding like a desire for a swap meet, but I bet there are other guys on here that would like to trade watches, fountain pens, bespoke items, etc.

    Thoughts?

    Sure... I have a Klepper folding kayak, an IWC 3251, some nice Aldens, all of which could be traded for bike stuff.

    It's up to the mods, of course, but I've had thoughts along similar lines. Thumbs up from me.

    as a whole, i would rather do business with a salonist than nearly anyone else. i wouldn't buy a used watch or super record derailer anywhere except here (or MAYBE the old here....heavy on the MAYBE).

    It might be a very good thing. I have Instruments, watches, how about a convertible ready to restore?

    i think it could be an interesting sub board, at least in beta testing: a classified for non-cycling related stuff atmo.

    It sounds like there are a lot of thumbs up for this idea. I would love it. I would get the party started with one of my Seamasters that I rarely wear, and maybe a couple of Mont Blanc pens, if that is anyone's interest.

    I collect guitars too, so that might make for some interesting trading. As stated above, the reason I thought this was a good idea is because I would never trade my possessions anywhere else on the web. On here, I would feel 100% confident.

    I like this idea too. Sometimes you have cool stuff that you no longer have a need for and want cool people to have a chance at it.

    My original thought was just that it was a section for non-bike items to be listed for sale, trade, whatever. For example, I have multiple watches, and even a couple of close doubles of almost the same watch. When purchased, they were all good ideas. Now some of them spend more time in the winder then on a wrist. I would personally sell it, trade it for another watch, trade it for a bike, trade it for the right guitar or bass, whatever. I know someone on here would love my America's Cup Seamaster for example. That said, there is no where else on the web that I would feel comfortable buying or selling anything.

    This isn't much different from the classifieds, but it gives a spot to list non-bike items. I personally would use it more for trade than sale, but if someone is looking for an outlet to free up some cash by selling other cool items, why not?

    This quote says my thoughts perfectly. Cool stuff to share with other cool people.

    So you log onto a bike forum to trade your Telecaster for a Seiko?

    Sure, sounds good.

    I am interested in a Telecaster, if you have one to trade. I have no Seiko to offer, but what else are you interested in?

    See how cool that would be.

    That was my hesitation with The Art of Wardrobe in the first place. Took some pokin' and proddin' from the bigwigs to get me to do it. Its their place, so let them decide.

    PS- If that's your reason for logging in here, then you're not obviously not doing it enough. AllsI'msayin'.

    There is a saddle trading thread in the classifieds. Why couldn't we have a "cool stuff" trading thread in this sub-forum. The Art of Wardrobe forum has been a big part of the Salon evolving beyond the bike.

    While I haven't seen a formal "thums up" from the powers that be, it doesn't seem like there is too much resistence to the idea either. What I was hoping for is that whoever has the ability to do so could create the sub forum in the classifieds, so it gets exposure. A sub forum of Non Cyling Classifieds, where we can trade, buy, and sell our cool non cyling stuff.
