Sweet vintage REI backpack

Only $68 or something at Afterlife on Valencia. Probably worth it, tbh. A good backpack is hard to find.

  2. Well I guess so says:

    C’mon, that store’s mark-up rate is INSANE. They bought that back for a few dollars in some thrift store in the middle of nowhere and now it’s $68? Explain please

      SRSLY. just spotted a similar REI bag from the 80′s on ebay for around $10, used.

      OK. Don’t think of it as “a backpack you could have purchased for $10.” Think of AfterLife as a “curator of cool stuff to save you time from choosing and shipping it.” So now $68 is paying for:

      * The convenient location so you don’t have to have something shipped to you and wait for it.
      * The fact that someone at that store knew that this bag even existed and had the eye to pick it out and select it for you, so you don’t have to scan Ebay.

      Not everyone needs this service, but some are happy to have it.
