Do these count?
Thanks. Me photography skills lacking, but it's there
I was hoping Thrift Thread 2.0 would be a little less edgy, a little kinder and gentler, and what the fuck do I see but Mr Rogers is flipping me off, like over and over and over and over. You people!!! Hey, shoe experts, please confirm these Florsheim Imperial mothers be shell, I feel good about the situation after cleaning up these $4 beauties (my size, ladies, so they're N/A). Since we have no sense of decorum here, either, I am pleading that you help keep my...
Yes! I am way further into debt with the record habit now than I ever was with the clothing habit. Effing store owners have me on speed dial when 500-lp collections walk in the door. It's not the $4 records that get you, it's the dead-mint "Last Waltz" triple for $30 and its cousins you can't resist. Or youre so sick of seeing either reprocessed stereo or beat to crap Miles Davis (or for us who like blues, Magic Sam, Muddy Waters etc...) that you end up getting nice $25...
Love and kisses, Kat.
There is no good jazz at thrift stores, save a few really beat up Miles Davis records and the occasional Ahmad Jamal and Ramsey Lewis if you're in that sort of thing (I am, but not everybody is).In other news, I don't always wear Bass Weejuns.

If I get another assignment in this topic area I will definitely be calling upon more of you for the next...
HEY I always wondered what Spoo looked lke in real life. I think we've spotted him!!!! Ferrari Guy For Hire Although I am assuming he more frequently wears a shirt -- the gallery is just for show
Grail = solid gold blazer buttons like 3 lucky thrift threaders have hit so far
AE Randolphs were in such nice shape and hell, they're $365 new right? Cobbler: heels & Topys for New England nasty weather, salt, sand, silt and other crap. Of course the second I sign off for this work, someone here finds the exact same pair in shell Still. In my thrifting I come across three kinds of shoes I purchase: Keepers I baby, awesome shoes I burn out/beat and love every minute of it (i.e. I have some Gucci and Ferragamo shoes that have 100,000 miles on them --...
