I'm one of the few people I know who believes Johnny Marr was the true talent and the lame lead singer was along for the ride
So to close the loop on my by the pound discussion… I went in today just because… You know, sometimes you get the Jones. They had had a half-price day yesterday. There were no maniacs today considering it was the coldest day in Boston area in 59 years and they had all binged yesterday. Found nothing except a) mismatched (look so evenly worn that methinks they were bought as mismatched seconds by some Maine dude in the first place and worked in/rode his harley with for...
PS if anyone finds Gripfast black and white spectators size 9 (US; UK8 I think) PM me. On my bucket list. They are pure rock and roll. In fact I know a guitarist in a punk band playing Hartford and New Haven clubs wearing those on stage...
Exactly. Well put, Machiavelli MacklemoreBut nowadays it's more about entertainment for me than it was before -- and like you I'm teaching my daughter thrift-fu and she is getting pretty good and developing a very individual style. But also teaching her how to spot/avoid pervs and in the case of our By The Pound situation we're discussing, avoiding getting knocked down by maniacs (or getting hit in the face by flying Reeboks). Looking out for herself.
So the locals who aren't African engaging in this behavior must be stockpiling for summer outdoor fleas, I'll buy vexco's theory. Spoo, there are men in our By the Pound. Couples working together.It's just no fun being there, it just sucks the joy out of thrifting. Good thing I myself have way too many shoes already, I don't need more. My wife calls me Imelda as it is -- for those old enough to get that reference. I bet I'm not the only here who gets that from a...
Yes! Although there are plenty of Swamp Yankees (I say that with love because I look that part too, some days) in ours too.What are the doing with all those shoes? I also notice they pass on high end brands, I've found some OMFG brands left behind...and they never take what I know is $$$$$$ rollerblades, hockey skates and ski gear that the athletes come in and snap up for their swap meets/indoor fleas.
So we have the first in the nation (so clerks tell me) combo goodwill retail/by the pound the next town over, it's been open a year now. Found some nice stuff now and then. Tonight in the bitter cold taking sweetie out to Valentine's dinner...wore the Gripfasts I got from the by the pound bins that were kinda harsh upon purchase but cleaned up well... Anyhow, the main reason I'm posting is to ask...WTF are the people of many ethnicities including my own doing when they...
Hey guys… I mean shoe experts… Who made these? London Paris Milan New York And an oval logo that was gold leafy at one point. And these other markings: Thanks
It also is validation that we can DO something IRL with all this useless knowledge we obssess over and acquire while filtering through the 99% dreck when ripping racks.
Hi all. I had thought about posting this for a while, but I never did. I should have a year and a half ago. THANK YOU MOTHERF@CKERS for all your advice and trading and cheers and jeers and shit. At 46 years old in late 2014 I made a career change from journalism to PR. I got the job interviewing in an H-F glenplaid suit I got at an SA in Portsmouth NH, custom white shirt w/french cuffs that fit me perfectly from SA in Philly, and vintage Florsheim or Nettleton wingtips I...
