The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 2904

post #43546 of 55058

Am I the only person who never finds sunglasses worth picking up? I think I find about 1/year, tops.

 

Hans - That view is great! Take some indoor pics if you get a chance. I'm curious what the inside of that place is like. When I was a kid, my dad opened a flooring store in a building that was a hospital from sometime in the 1800s-1920s. The basement still had really cool empty pill/medicine bottles and boxes hidden in random areas.

E-thrifting dangers ...

 

 

I got a nice looking Burberry Suit from one of the larger sellers of wholesale stuff.  Feels very nice, USA made, and it's recent white label.

 

 

 

All great, I'm happy ... not so fast:

Really, you couldn't send it to the cleaners?  ugh

 

In spite of this 'stuff', I love this business.

Anyone recognize maker tag? It says produced by Mital but very little info comes up. This thing is awesome, super soft, horn buttons (i think), wool/cotton lining

 

 

Then this thing was too awesome to pass up for $20 

I think its real fur detachable hood?

Unfortunately no markings besides the made in USA tag, any thoughts on makers?

 

Then this one

 

 

And then finally the finale, the ties

 

First the basic ones

That is awful. I would most certainly send her a message, she usually has decent CS. 

 

Was the white label  Burberry London still made by HF?

Chanel glasses aren't made in france, in Italy unless super vintage IIRC. I think mine were 4017s not 4002s.

Ahh, looks like these may be fake, they're (supposedly) made in France. Can't tell whether they're vintage, but doubt it.

I'll try to grab some. It honestly doesn't look too old. Normally, the old buildings here have domed ceilings. There is an attic space, so it's possible that they do, but mine are normal. I haven't found anything super cool, there wasn't much left. I immediately checked the cellar space to see if anything dusty was left. Sadly, it was just full of spider webs.

Thanks! I was about 15 minutes late to this set and immediately thought of you. I can't tell you age, but the tag underneath the table said "Kvalitet, Form, Funktion." I saw the chair from a distance and thought Hans Wegner, but I really don't know much about this stuff.

Same. Around here any sunglasses that get donated with the words "RayBan" "Japan" "France" "Italy" mostly get culled in the backroom and sent to shopgoodwill or eBay. I've dug through the sunglasses baskets numerous times and I've only ever come up with a pair of cheap Banana Republics. Those vintage B&L Rayban Clubmasters I posted a long time ago were in a boutique Goodwill glass case for $50. That's the only pair of RB's I've ever seen at a thrift.

 

Buffalo Exchange is a decent place to pickup sunglasses. Sometimes they get under-priced by noobie staff, and you can always trade a stack of J.crew shirts for them. :sly:
