Vinyl? I was one of those fools who bought everything on CD. But now that my hard drive is king, my life's work has turned into more wall decoration that anything else: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I do have a pretty decent vinyl collection though, packed away in another room. If only I'd have known, I would have bought the records instead.

I have come across two of them. They call them Peek a Boo ties.
I flipped one for $108 and one for about $30

anyway the pics...

I know just enough about pocket watches to be dangerous, ha!

But something added to the value that wasn't there a couple years ago is the insane price of gold. A few years ago, solid (i.e. not gold fill) cases might add a hundred or two to the overall value, but now if those are truly solid, not fill, it greatly enhances the price.

They just seem so...odd to me.  A google search with that number string doesn't net anything.  Anyone with knowledge about this kind of stuff, feel free to chime in.

The best chance of tracking them down might be here: http://www.shoearchives.com/Ferragamo%20Pages/salvatoreferragamoarchivePG1.htm. I used this to figure out what a seemingly rare pair of boots were. Took a while; mine were on page 23, but the system worked.

Nice find the the RG....$$$ on ebay. Bugatchi not so much. Also go to page one, and read about the first 8,000 posts ...then you will know what sells on ebay.

Guys, I'm afraid I've failed you.  There are no crazy finds to report.
