This is either a great idea or a diabolical trap. From a Racked reader; "Could you host an online swap meet of items snagged at recent sample sales that are now inflicting serious buyer's remorse? Because I'm sure a fellow Racked reader might want the Alexander Wang, size 6, wool-lapel leather blazer I fought for and now wish I hadn't. (And I won't mention the THREE bags I snagged at the Anya Hindmarch sale-o-rama. I absolutely wasn't going to go, but you made it sound so enticing! Fiends!) Anyway, the first gal who shows up in front of the Hearst tower on Monday morning with four crisp Benjamins scores the blazer. Any chance? Any?" [Racked Inbox]
