Okay, today I went to the barbershop. It was the same ole same ole, as usual. However, after I finished getting a cut, a booster comes meandering towards me.
Now, you all KNOW what a “Booster” is right? It’s that dude who comes into any barber or beauty shop with all this name brand, high price, material–in bulk–trying to sell it. It can be bootleg DVDs all the way up to a 100 inch flatscreen television. And we ALL know that the material in question is hotter than August in hell…
Okay, as I’m walking to my car the booster sidles up alongside me and say, “Whassup kid…I got some new J’s and airforce ones in the trunk. I can tell you would probably like em.”
Well, I do like sneakers so I figured I’d give em the once over. So, I walk with the booster (Markell was his name) towards his Cadillac and he pops the trunk. Oh my god, I swear he had a mall in his trunk! EVERYTHING was in there.
“How much you sellin those for?!” I pointed out the airforce ones. I wanted them so bad. They looked CLEAN!
“twenty dollars” he said.
I blinked my eyes, “You forreal?!” I asked, knowing at Footlocker or Champs they would probably be close to eighty bucks. And the booster had the nerve to have size nines (my shoe size!). So I decided to take them. Then he started showing me all of these shirts and pants he had (five sets in all); and they were name brands too. Some of them were a size too big in the waist, but I could easily have them taken in…I’m a shopper so I KNOW good material when I see it. This was ALL good material. He said he would give ALL the clothes to me for a total of seventy dollars! On top of that he had a BRAND NEW IPOD (still in the box) and he said he would let it go for fiddy dollars…However, haggler I am, I got it down to forty.
Chile, I bought all of that stuff for only $130.00…Ran right to my ATM and got it ALL!
I would never have gotten off that cheap in the mall, EVER!
Thank the heavens for boosters.
I won’t give the location of my barbershop because, uhm, I am going to start having an affair with Markell. I love him. I really, REALLY, love him.
Well, I’m kidding. I felt kind of bad buying “HOT” merchandise. However, it was too good a deal to pass up! My first and last time buying in bulk from a booster.
So, have you all ever gotten really great deals from boosters?
All his merchandise was GOOD too. I’ve already downloaded several songs onto this IPOD…lol.
