Im so glad someone else thought the same. no limited edition NYSE ones though, but these are really beautiful. The lighting sucks in my pics but its not easy to find black and silver ones either.

Never thought I'd buy myself a lazy susan, but the work in this is amazing.


Original 70s lava lamp lol

@SpooPoker  Wow ... you just live in a very different part of the planet than I do.  Makes my head spin.

 

I went to one stop while I was waiting for the pharmacy to finish, and 2 hours later had gathered a few things you could use for rags around the shop if you want...

 

* Hugo Boss Pea Coat, wool/cash blend

* Pringle green lambswool sweater (POP)

* Barbour, "Steve McQueen Collection" Plaid shirt  (XXL, oh well)

* Lacoste shirt, cuz it fit me and it'll bug my daughter when we visit her school

 

 

 

And in the women's sweaters ...  

* Acne Studios

* Smartwool

 

 

And one very cool thing, based on the buy what you see and feel principle:

 

It's a women's Japanese denim chore coat (just what your missus wants).  Made by a small designer/manufacturer/store in West Hartford, Japanalia.  He retired a few years ago but there's still a following, so might get to flip it for profit.  It's the sort of simple cool things we find in my zip code.  

 

 

 

 

Kidding aside, @SpooPoker... congrats on the store, so happy for you.  I know it takes a huge commitment and energy, and it's impressive to see. Really cheering you on.  I do plan on visiting, hopefully this fall.

Sadly, no. I should just burn it.

Few random finds tonight. More of a vintage night than anything. Polo x2, Miller, Spalding made in Japan, cutco 1737 cleaver, grundig radio (sadly not the grundig I'm looking for based on sold listings).

While taking pics of my Canali trousers for eBay, I noticed these in the pocket. What are they for?

This thread continues to get better and better. Well played fellas.

I've been on fire lately (for the UK anyway) despite being away on holiday and our whole house getting the lurgy. Still got bags in the car to sift through but feeling rough still. Will do photos soon I swear; gotta keep up the UK end with my fellow Brit brothers. Few nice pops for me lately including Charvet and North Face outerwear. For some reason I'm getting a buzz outta finding nice outerwear. Sort of dreading/looking forward to cleaning a load of shoes I've found. #thriftlife
