Yes. I won't speculate, but there were a couple of "groups" that had issues with one another last fall. Could have just been something random? Not sure, but I saw a couple of them in glass windows.
Here is a quick write-up of Naples. Some pictures are of the shops, others not. I used a spoiler so those that are strictly interested in thrift finds can easily bypass it. [[SPOILER]]
Here is the bulk of what I picked up in Naples. A lot of it is for me, in all honesty I went a bit nuts (at least more than I expected) and it got to the point where my wife stopped asking how much something was when she saw me with new bags. The rest of it is for a few buddies, SF members, and colleagues that had specific requests. I did the best to accommodate, but it was easiest with my local friends/colleagues. One of my friends asked me to keep an eye out for Boglioli...
I read that this morning with a cup of coffee sitting in front of me, untouched. I'm a bit slow in the morning and read that as some sort of vulgar prison lingo before I understood.
Wow, someone recognized it!My wife speaks fluent Italian and of course I asked her if this is actually used. She said she doesn't hear it, but she has more contact with northern Italians (where she learned Italian) than southern Italians and that the dialect is very different.The first time I heard it used there (someone else's conversation), I cracked up. Finally, I heard it a couple more times, including being called it once or twice. I loved it.
Back from holiday (and back to the real world)! I caught up on the thread, but didn't want to do a page-long multi-post, so a few general comments: - Thanks for avoiding spoilers in the short side-conversation about TV shows. I'm way behind the times and I'm just starting Boardwalk Empire. My wife is watching The Sopranos for the first time (just got through season 3) and she recognized this before I did: - I'd be interested in a sort of thrift thread swap! PM me...
In that case, a few teasers:I pass piles of it, but only because I have no idea what's desired and what's not.
Checking in from Napoli! Great city, we're already planning another trip. Glad we didn't drive here, you couldn't pay me to drive inside the city...just as chaotic as you'd imagine. Clothing has been a blast, but prices are all over the place. I've seen and/or bought nearly every major Italian maker, save for Kiton (still elusive). I managed to pop into a lot of the big stores including Borrelli (really knowledgable and had beautiful stuff from the spring/summer...
Thanks for such helpful info!As of now...nothing Previously, I was making the effort. I'm using a Sony Alpha A100 and cracked the screen awhile back and haven't had it fixed. One fatal flaw about the Sony Alpha series is that all menu controls need the LCD to make selections, unlike a Nikon.Rather than repair it, I may just opt for a new camera.Thanks again, I'll report back after I've done a bit of research!
Well put!I mean absolutely no offense by saying this, but a lot of your posts are asking whether you should pick something up or whether something is worthwhile. I think it would be worth the time to go through some of the thread to get a better idea of things you should keep or pass. It's often hard to answer the question of "Should I get this?" as a lot of variables will go into it. If it's for yourself, you like it, the price is right, and it fits, then the answer is...
