This is really interesting. I bought it at an antique fair and am going to try to get in touch with the dealer to buy the few others he had. It's a ball for a southern French version of bocci. The center is boxwood root and those are all nails. The entire ball is covered with iron and brass nails, so it's got some weight to it. The dealer was really up on it and said it was only made in this way from the 1800s-the early 1900s. Here is what I quickly read on Wikipedia:...
Copy and pasted from above: I should probably say that I now have new bills to pay with the new office space. Therefore, not a lot can go out for cost + shipping.

I'll try not to bore you with too many:Oldest Hermès I've found: [[SPOILER]]

@Fueco Mike, my deepest sympathies to you, I'm so sorry for your loss.
I picked up a pair of tiny Lederhosen last year, and I think @ATLjon asked me to keep an eye out. I have two pairs, both NWOT and both available. One pair is around 30cm/11.5-12inches across, the other a bit bigger. I can get full measurements of both. @ATLjon has the right of first refusal. The little side pocket on the first pair is for a knife. It would be cost + shipping, so a total of ~ €20. I'm not sure whether that's cheaper than what you guys can get them on ebay,...
Ahh, looks like these may be fake, they're (supposedly) made in France. Can't tell whether they're vintage, but doubt it.I'll try to grab some. It honestly doesn't look too old. Normally, the old buildings here have domed ceilings. There is an attic space, so it's possible that they do, but mine are normal. I haven't found anything super cool, there wasn't much left. I immediately checked the cellar space to see if anything dusty was left. Sadly, it was just full of spider...
On to shoes... Copy and pasted from above: I should probably say that I now have new bills to pay with the new office space. Therefore, not a lot can go out for cost + shipping. I will hopefully be able to go back to cutting deals in the future, but until then, ebay should be your guide. Even came with the trees... Another pair, though not new: Ludwig Reiter, rough shape but couldn't leave them: Church's. Can anyone read the size? I know they're F...
I've found some great sunglasses this summer. Never found more than 2 pairs at once, so this was collecting over a number of weeks. I should probably say that I now have new bills to pay with the new office space. Therefore, not a lot can go out for cost + shipping. I will hopefully be able to go back to cutting deals in the future, but until then, ebay should be your guide. Carrera 5512 (Austria) in black: Carrera 5512 (Austria) in olive: Carrera 5530...
Here is the start of some recent finds... First up, some decor. Bought this guy at the flea market. Normally, I already know what I'd be willing to pay (and the relative value), before I ask for a price. This was one of those situations that I had no idea what to expect to pay (How much do pheasants really cost? ) Anyway, I expected €40-50 and the seller said "€20." Out of principal, I immediately said "€10," and he was happy to settle for €15. I have no idea of "value,"...
Well, I finally caught up on the thread! I've been 1,200+ posts behind for MONTHS. I can't believe how much awesome stuff has been posted over the last 8-10 weeks. Every time I wanted to comment, I realized I'd be a couple of weeks behind all of the other "awesome!" comments. @Mr. Moo: We've been on some weird alternate thrifting planets. I can't tell you how many things you've posted have overlapped with me, including that reversible Zegna jacket. I bought that new a few...
