I handled it the way that everyone here suggests that they would, I put the envelope back in the pocket and took it to the cash register, hoping that the cashier wouldn't notice it. There were no clues in the jacket or the envelope as to the identity of the owner. The jacket is vintage, at least 35 years old IMO so this could very well be something donated when the owner died. As a side note, I told my wife that when I die she should check the pockets of all my jackets before disposing of them. I have been known to keep poker money in a jacket breast pocket, inside a bank envelope in fact. My previous best find in my 4 years of thrifting was a cotton handkerchief, which is a good find IMO since I am a white handkerchief / TV fold kind of guy. Other things I have found include church programs, funeral programs, graduation programs and basketball ticket stubs. But this is the best find, $546.

In my opinion, if you purchase an item then you get any contents there in whether it be cash or bed bugs. If you put the cash in your pocket and left the store, then I would say that is theft. Otherwise, I don't see anything wrong with it.

Those Paul & Shark shirts are underrated IMO. I've seen and owned a couple. They do seem to be a bit on the slimmer side with their measurements. I *might* be interested in that one if your other dude falls through, depending on measurements.

My playah says that's not how he rolls so I'll grab the measurements Wednesday and post them for you.

Hickey Freeman SC. I love the color/pattern, but too big for me. Looks to be around 44R. I'll take measurements if anyone wants it just reimburse me +shipping. The tie probably isn't worth the 99 cents I paid but as a musician, I couldn't pass this up. Hunting Horn, how fun! Musician. Conductor. Teacher. Sent from iPhone

Thrifting close encounter today: first, I found a silk/wool sport coat tagged 36S, but when I tried it on the shoulders hung about a half inch over my own on each side. Then, I found a Hickey Freeman suit in navy - very modern, everything in order, and I thought maybe I'd pick it up to flip, until I saw that it was tagged 41XL, a size I imagine isn't in high demand.
