The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 1560

my guess is letter opener.

Google "Trench Art." It's not uncommon for soldiers to pass the time by recycling things into art. Like most things, the value relies heavily on the notoriety of who made it and how well it was executed. Definitely a cool piece.

What is it? What purpose might it have served?

I just wanted to make sure this pictured showed up again.

 

Ehrmegerhd. I would die and go to heaven. I just want to *touch* vicuna and see how it feels. It must be softer than cashmere, and more slick to the fingertips than baby alpaca.

Still no ideas on who made these Ed Meier boots? Do they do in house work? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
