You have any more of those mannequins available?

post #40112 of 110792

Two more pairs of cufflinks, they are ginormous. And actually found the matching spark pluc tie clip to the spark plug links I picked up a couple weeks ago. Same brand on the plug too. 60 miles away from where I picked up the links.

+1 that looks pinnable and fully articulating. I need one of those.

Is that Mrs. Spoo?

that unit was made in Norway by a company called Bruksbo.

Cado units are very impressive i just dont like the fact that you have to drill like 30 holes in your wall to install them,this one is free standing and took me literally 10 minutes to put together.

here it is in all its glory (not my pic)

grendel,you asked for some tips.

actually to be perfectly honest there are none,besides living in a big city with lots of thrifts and going to most of them full time.

dont forget this is my job,its basically just dumb luck...well to find it,once its there you obviously have to recognize what you have.

but the finding part is just simple math,to put it in perspective since june 1 i have done 5700 KM on my volvo.

i basically get an oil change once a month from all the mileage i do looking for this stuff.

its not even location within the city or timing,just basically pure chance by way of volume.

that was a unit by Clausen & Son.you should have a silver sticker somewhere in the back or first drawer

This is how I picture you looking lol8[1].gif But seriously, are you in the cast of one of the storage unit shows?

Thrifting is weird sometimes. I was just thinking this morning that I've never seen a Charvet shirt in the wild. This afternoon I stumbled upon 5 of them, unfortunately they were all too small for me (15 neck), french cuffed (I'm trying to limit myself here) and $35 each, so I passed.  Must have been DM7s leftovers. If anyone in LA is interested I can let you know where they are at.

A $35 shirt--of any label--is from thrift store?

Just wondering.

Nice.....Now I need to find some "really good" stuff to consign to Spoo so I don't feel guilty browsing his auctions every day sly.gif

Because while browsing his stuff, I found myself almost bidding on a cocktail dress he posted! Presentation is everything! Check it out.

A couple of months ago, the guys over at Talk Ivy were discussing Etsy sellers related to Trad / Ivy wear when someone mentioned a particular shop that had apparently developed an unconventional way to sell vintage clothes...  uhoh.gif
