I think we should grab anything and ask the assumed SF member "Do you know if this is grenadine?"

My sister now has a few passable fakes that she's happy with (and knows they're fake), and I did find a few realsies. I just stay away from any and all Coach. Even the real stuff is rarely worth picking up cuz every thrift around here marks it up as being real.

Question: "do you know if this is grenadine?"
Answer: "it is clearly fake"
Final question: "but is it shell?"

That's how we will know,'3 layers of security

Indeed.
(And I was thrifting while on that conference call. I rarely have the luxury of single tasking during daylight hours. But I will admit it's often mutually exclusive with exhaustively thorough and efficient in the store.)

If any of you superthrifters ever make it down (or over) to Alabama, I will wear a nametag.

Hello?
Is it me you're looking for?
Or maybe pee-stained Zanella's?
I never can be sure.
Hello?
Any Kiton's on the floor?
I'd settle for Brioni,
Just don't play that Macklemore.

As much as I like "the Monkey wears vicuna" I actually think this might work without looking like a lunatic.
