I never have, but now I'll have to start!
It's rainin' hats!(Found these a week or so ago, but haven't had a chance to brag them.) I think this was all part of one donation, the store never has hats, but I walked in and all five of these were on the shelf. I left one Towncraft behind, for whoever wanted it. I'm not greedy. [[SPOILER]]
I haven't posted in a while, but I did find one thing that I thought was decent: This for fun (what the heck is a bow tie club?) And a pair of shoes that will fit my 9 year old in six months...for six months !!! And this a week ago. Needs some cleaning, but in good shape.

This is my experience to a T. The only place I go that has a significant difference actually prices suits 15-20 higher than buying the same items separately. Wouldn't you know they do the best job of keeping them together!
Be very careful with using any kind of solvent - including alcohol. You can dry out the surface pretty quickly and (especially if the shoes are vintage) you can end up with cracking in short order. Been there, done that.You're basically trying to remove the polish. The conservative approach is going to be to rub it off over time. Warming up the surface gently will make the polish more likely to come off with a rag (but don't get the rag going so fast that you end up...
