The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 1657

post #24841 of 51278
Happy new year to everyone!

  • I have a thrift-related resolution:
  • I want to find some Haute Couture from one of the big houses. I'm not sure where I'll find it, but it's been on my list for quite awhile.
  • I'd like to thrift somewhere in the US again.
  • I'd like to thrift in a new country. I've made a dent in my list of countries, but still a couple of big ones on the list that are nearby.
  • I had "baby clothes" on my to-thrift list and did well before Christmas. No pictures because, let's face it, it's pretty boring. However, I caught someone's baby-shower gift donation. A rack full of recent, NWT baby clothes for boys in a range of sizes from 0-18 months. Stuff from H&M, Zara, Benetton, etc. I paid €.50-1.50 a piece and the woman threw a few extras in. Great feeling!


Anyone else have a thrift resolution?

Thanks for all of the very helpful responses! Yes, it's to carry around all of the baby things one needs. I honestly wasn't sure how much bodily fluid is reasonably expected to get on the bag, so I wasn't sure leather was the way to go. Maybe I'll make do with something I already own until I get a handle on how much stuff I need to carry around. I'll save the info you guys have offered, so again, thank you!

 

PTO suggested this Brady fishing bag (triple layer waterproof canvas and has removable rubberized liner):

Not sure if this is a thing, but a friend just gave it to me. I know nothing about military gear. Deets?

@HansderHund 

 

i know folks have weighed in on this but i thought i'd add that i've been using a large backpack.

 

you're gonna want both your hands available so something cross body that you can get out of the way (as has been mentioned) is a great idea.

 

i've got a pretty big bag and when packed for more than a few hours it's beyond full so capacity is another good thing to consider. mazel tov amigo.

Something seemed a little off about it, but not much of a risk picking it up at $3. What's the dead giveaway?

That is actually pretty cool, thanks for the link! I was interested in something similar!

Great information to have, so I can't get one that's too big? My wife currently thinks she doesn't want to be away from him for the first couple of months, but I assume that will change and I'd like to be mildly prepared smile.gif

N/A. This has made me always check the coat rack twice, once on arrival and once before I leave. Found it on my way out, yet didn't see a new rack rolled out. Maybe someone put it back :puzzled:

Hey all -

Thanks for all the great info in 2015. I mainly just read this thread, but it's great to know what's out there and what's worth a second look.

Some finds from within the past month or so:

Church's 8D Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


First time seeing Church's in Madison, or even the state.

AE Park Avenue 8D Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

3 Ties (Varvatos, the 'good' Givenchy and BB) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Givenchy was made in Italy, and looks relatively recent.

2 Eton shirts from today Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

A trip to Eau Claire a few weeks ago yielded a trio of Harris tweeds in my size, and I just snagged this J Crew wool/cashmere as well:

Back to front: JAB (old red label and made in the USA), Coat Tails, Marshall & Reed and the J. Crew

Shoes are available.
