You and handserhund are doing great with the kops in your own size.


I almost walked into a GW today. Haven't been in a long time. Decided to get ice cream and go to work instead :/

Big thanks to everyone for the comments and thumbs. I was thrilled to hit the jackpot...it's sincerely rare in my part of the world. Many of my stores have 10 or so jackets hanging at any given time, so to find a boatload like that never really happens. It's even a bit sweeter since I can pick and choose what I'd like to keep out of it.

@capnwes: I should have thought about my name choice, it's not the easiest thing to remember/spell/say.

Not quite a (new) thrift find, but I invited a friend over to look through my 45s today. I only have a few hundred, picked up while thrifting in high school and college. Since I no longer DJ, I honestly hadn't played them in a decade, but I didn't want to get rid of them without an experienced eye.

Anyway, my pal's a big soul music expert, and he pointed out what I hoped/expected, which was that a few dozen of them were $10 records, not $1 records.

Oh, and that one of them just sold on Discogs for $640.

Picked up a couple pairs of 100+ year old boots today. Technically not thrifted, but they were on sale, plus I got an extra 10% off when I asked about the "good guy discount". Can't believe that actually worked.

 

Both makers, from St Louis, were closely rivaled and related and eventually joined forces in 1911 to form the International Shoe Co (later Interco)

 

Roberts, Johnson & Rand, probably only worn a handful of times.

Peters Shoe Company, worn more than that, obv.

WOW! Very cool! Interesting that both seem to be canvas lined, right?

This is a popular case brief that nearly all law schools make thier law students brief. International Shoe was a landmark decision made by the U.S. Supreme Court holding that a civil defendant could not be subjected to personal jurisdiction by the courts of a state unless the defendant had certain mimimum contacts with that state.

 

International Shoe Co. v. Washington, 326 U.S. 310 (1945)

I hear y'all like a little *food* porn every now and then?

 

Before:

 

 

 

After:

 

 

When I crisped it under the broiler for the last five minutes of cooking, maybe I should have set it to "low" instead of "high." :confused:

 

Edited for: cannibalism, Tarantino proclivities.

Foot porn? What is that - "Dahmer surprise"? "Chicken a la Gein"?
