Selling then regretting doing so?

Postby Moondog55 » Wed 15 May, 2024 10:50 am

Have you ever made a decision to sell something? For a good and valid reason at the time and then later on decide you'd made a mistake?
Well I've just done that.
I've decided that I'll start downhill skiing again and because I get cold little fingers doing so [ I got frost nipped a while back and the smaller fingers get numb very fast] I used to use OR HighCamp trigger finger mitts. Sold them to Icefest a couple of years back and now I'll have to go and buy a new pair
How many others have done this more than once?

Far better off hoarding then selling, although my family beg to differ.

haha, I was going to say the same thing except that my family don't differ in that opinion - my bushwalking better half is a better hoarder of gear than I am!

^^^ This.
As I own my own home my family have no say in what I hoard or frequently "update", especially when it comes to road bikes!

OR makes some of the best equipment for outside. I discovered them in the late 1980s and have one of their earliest red foam insulated soft boxes for storing food. Probably from 1988 or so. Sunhats, beanies, gloves and polartec sunglasses cases show more than a little devotion to a brand that has been around a long time.

I did have a tear in my eye when I sold off most of the Everest and Denali gear. If we win the lottery I'll be able to afford both to re-purchase and a wheelchair guide to the summit.
I just re-bought a pair of HighCamp trigger finger gloves. This pair I'll have to keep just in case

I've realised that selling multiple things on marketplace means that occasionally when I need one thing again, I can afford to buy new or upgraded versions of what I sold.

Not a foolproof methodology but a lot of clothing etc does perish with age, so often getting something new is worth it.
