It will improve their sales, as most of them will most likely join them when the chinese economy hits the tipping point.

It's a suspended sentence. They'll do their "time" in one of their many vacation homes.

The "vintage" store besides designer gear was pretty much perfected by American Rag, way back in the day. In 1997, when I discovered it (that was when I moved to LA) to had already passed its heyday, but it was still a pretty cool place. Over they years, I sadly saw its decline. After I left LA in 2003, I went to the San Francisco location year after declining year, until it completely ran out of soul and just closed up shop.

In the late 90s and early 2000s, at least, the vintage stuff at the LA location was extremely well chosen. It was considered "overpriced", but not out of line with other vintage stores in LA like Lo-Fi and Wasteland. Vintage stores can charge more than thrift stores not just because of the retail experience, but because the buying is really spectacular. Maxfield has things like whole collections of vintage LV luggage, Hermes, etc... It takes something really special to stand out that way. imo, Nicole's buying is not so great that it really merits the prices she charges - at least, I've never seen anything that would make me want to pay her prices. And it's not like I am a great thrifter, either.

If she can get the prices she wants, good for her. But it's not for me.

Tony Soprano dead, damn.

GOT is just enjoyable trash and the wire had genuinely brilliant moments but the sopranos is of a different order altogether, in terms of TV shows only twin peaks can rival it, and so much of its brilliance was down to his performance at the centre. A real loss.

Maybe not the greatest series ever, but very good nonetheless, and Iwan Rheon is just brilliant nod[1].gif

There are a number of reasons that retail stores stop carrying brands or brands drop stores...for example, unpaid invoices.

Watch The Sopranos first. You'll be less disappointed with it after you finish The Wire.

BTW, who are you rooting for in the finals for Lord Stanley's Cup? You are sort of in a unique position.
