It's nice to have you back.
HUGE shout-out to Greg613. I went by the GW with the torsos during lunch, and both of them were still there. I put one in my cart immediately, browsed around a bit, and then came back to inspect the second one. Right then, a woman started checking me out pretty heavily, it turns out she runs a beau-teek and they would be peeerrrrffeeecct for her store. I cleared out and let her snag the other one.
Great-ish shape, but could use a scrub down. Fully adjustable stand. $10.
I also picked up Purple Rain on vinyl. The cover's kind of beat, but the record looks clean, so I glady ponied up 77 cents.
And if anyone is ballsy enough to wear these, they were $20. NOS. Perfect shape. 11 D:

this thing is heavy but its fast
and a guy i know,i was actually precent when he found it got a REAL vintage Tag Heuer Monaco for $7.99 at Value Village (Savers)
Any tips on finding stuff like this? The thrifts I hit do NOT have this kind of quality.
And thank you for those. Probly my fav casual loafers at the moment.
They had similar grensons in the same size, but I hesitated. By the time I went back 2 hours later they were gone. Pride weekend really cleared out the thrifts.
That's a good thing. Means all new stuff to look at in the next week or two. When it gets a little stagnant, I have considered just buying a bunch of cheap undesireable shoes and donating them elsewhere, just to see some new stuff hit the shelves.
