    Question Did anybody else miss the vintage merch sale?

    I was so looking forward to picking up some vintage swag at reasonable prices to keep and give away back home. Really worked well last couple of years. Did I miss the sale somewhere or is the practice gone for good?
    Couldn't even buy older posters cheaper.
    Also noticed everything this year was tagged and inventoried - end of an era?

    I think I remember someone in our camp saying something about it Saturday morning, or Sunday morning? We were in the very back of lot 4 though and I didn't want to walk all the way over there.

    I thought about making the walk, but I already have plenty of coachella merch that doesn't fit from previous years and didn't feel like digging through boxes this year.

    Last year 2012 I went to the vintage sale with a couple of friends. The fucking douchebag at the entrance told us we needed to pick up 50 cigarette butts off the ground before he would let us in to look at the merch. I told him to go fuck himself and threw a can of beer at him and told him to pick that shit up. I wonder how much money Goldenvoice missed out on because of this piece of shit.

    Where the fuck were these vintage sales this year and last? Certainly we're not talking about the activities tent.

    Well, that explains why nobody heard anything...
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    I asked around if they were holding it and one of the guys at the boutique said he had done an inventory of stuff specifically for the vintage sale; strange that it didn't happen.

    It did happen? I went W2 so I don't know about W1 but I'm surprised they didn't advertise it more. I remember the first time I heard about it was 2 years ago and they announced it on twitter. My wife and I went to it last year too. If it did indeed happen this year, where did it take place?

    I don't know about weekend 2, but weekend 1 it was on sunday at around 1 or 2pm in the silent disco. it's never really advertised, it just kinda happens and if you don't see it or hear about it, it's like a tree falling in the woods. luckily I camp with a fairly large group and when some of them returned with ice, they told the rest of us it was happening.

    Yes I missed as well and got some lame excuses for why it was not going down. The crew who was supposed to do it twice never showed is all I heard. Got the goods from friends and others to play catch up. A few years back but there had to be to age out there. Let's get back to the 5 dollar shirts and 10 dollar hoodies Coachella
