Never ceases to amaze me. Thank you!

Some of my more interesting thrift store find from the last two days. A Wine Enthusiast Sommelier Tasting and Aroma Kit, new without box Allen Edmonds sharkskin shoes, and a cobblers bench (I've been looking for one for 4 years and found two at the same store today. This was the better of the two).

This fucker is mint condition, the "piling" they spoke of was some nice slubby silk action
