We had a major gold rush in our house today. My son has been trying for months to buy something from Supreme – anything – and continually failing. Until now.
Do you know Supreme? Me neither, but it has crept up on a certain demographic to become one of the world’s most sought after brands. They release a limited edition ‘piece’ once a week at 11am. Clever.
As my son pointed out, “this is very kind of them Mum, as it’s during our break at school.” See what I mean – clever.
The only way he was going to have success was to take my very expensive lap-top to school, with details of MY BANK CARD, and set up something called a ‘Bot’ which automatically lands the piece into the basket. With the re-sale value of over 200% of the ticket price, I agreed, only with the promise of a profit share.
SUCCESS – he landed the big fish – a limited edition very rare branded sweatshirt for £130.
After all this fuss, I suggested he keep the trophy. But no. It was immediately up on Depop and sold for £375. Profit of £245! Ker-ching.
You can see why the boys are going crazy for this stuff. It’s serious money.
