Haven't posted here in a while, but that's mostly because I haven't found anything worth bragging about.
Today proved to be my most successful/interesting day in a while when I found my first item of SW&D
ever for only $5. I also brought along a couple of North African students studying here for the summer and while they didn't find anything of note either, it was fun to be with them during their first thrifiting experience. I expect we'll go again later this week.
A couple of weeks ago I also found a Hickey Freeman houndstooth silk/wool jacket in a 42R that I imagine I'll eventually put up for sale or trade.Otherwise, the thrifting landscape has been rather bleak. Yet as Jacob Riis so eloquently put, ""When nothing seems to help, I go look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before."
