Sure but solid staples don't fare poorly for me either. As stated previously though, I'm not touching old dated stuff regardless.

Totoro is one of my favorite animated movies. Watched it over and over as a kid. I actually love all of Miyazaki's films. Here's our son's costume that my wife made last Halloween .



And here is his room. Our neighbor painted these for us.

Because I can't let things go, here are photos of a stapled price tag on the lapel before and immediately after removing. I didn't do anything to try to hide holes.




Maybe your stores use different staples, or you're not being careful enough removing them.

^ Coolest thing ever. Totoro is the best film by Ghibli in my eyes; it captures the era and the Japanese art of film so well.

I keep a small flathead screwdriver on my desk for this exact reason... I've rarely had any issues with visible damage after removing staples.

@pi34 Thank you. Its an F430 Spider. I thrifted it.

I work on it myself so I drive a 911 (that I could claim as half thrifted), but not a patch on your car - that's a lovely f430, and subtle in black.

Nice.

 

Just saw the store in Oyster Bay bit on your site.  Good luck with that!  I think they have one or two women's consignment stores that do higher end stuff there.  I think they are redoing Snouders [or planning to...I guess it remains to be seen if they guy has any idea what kind of work he got into] which should help the town off the main drag.  I don't really drive there that often.

you're from around here?

The women's consignment shops consider Tory Burch as high end lol.

Snouders is a great spot but really that should be a bar if you ask me. You should check out the Oyster Bay Brewing Co, great beer and good vibes.

Saying anything about a Ferrari being "subtle" is tantamount to saying that the Titanic just took on a little water.

Oh - fair haha.  I've never stepped foot in one.  I only heard about them as I was trying to unload a bunch of Brooks Brothers that no longer fits me, but I ended up donating/giving most of it away at this point.  Have a cedar closet to go through / unload yet though.

 

I'm from the end of Laurel Hollow that uses the Cold Spring Harbor school district...pretty frustrating sometimes [can't use any of their train stations despite them being closer].
