The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 2470

Couple shoe finds -- conditioned, but otherwise not yet polished and generally worked over for wearing out:

Tomasian, and they are most definitely shell, but WTF is Tomasian? Shoe experts school me on this one.





And my first pair of "good" French Shriners that actually fit me. I put good in quotes because while they aren't the late-model vintage that sucks, they are irregulars, and both shoes have tiny gouges that I'll polish over...but I'll still know they're there.




Added: so after chatting with some folks and googling, I see Tomasian must have been some U.S. store or shoe brand...and Florsheim made the shoes for this marque. Any more info is welcome. I'm guessing the 1965-75 era?

Omega constellation Quartz, solid 18k case and bracelet:
They wouldn't budge from their insane price... will just wait another week and go back, and keep doing so until they get into the realm of reality..

That looks dated to hell. probably 70s, and a quartz movement isn't doing much for the value. Probably worth just melt if its really 18K.

Definitely dated as can be... couldn't determine the amount of gold weight there though.

Slim garage sale pickins...

 

 

 

Not sure if it works - don't care either way - I like the lines:

 

  

Hoped this might be something, but quick eBay search says it's probably nothin'.  No tags anywhere (had a collar tag, gone missing).

Quick follow up. I showed this to a friend who lives a few blocks from me. He picked out a couple more signatures: Paul Sherwen and Hank V (lost the name in my head). More presciently, he also raced in the Tour DupPont in 1996. He actually raced against a good number of these guys.

I'm debating between 2 pair of military style boots; one an Allen Edmonds and the other a USA Made Frye model. Is the US made frye vastly inferior to AE in terms of quality?

Just a preview of my finds today. I'm happy.
