Expensive-ish Made in Portland boots. Recraftable, so that might be worth it.

Nice Danners, and the non-goretex version too, for warmer climates. Totally worth the re-craft if they fit you.

Well, I just found that the lining is totally gone in both heels! And they're a bit too small.

Did I miss the part where the OP said they were gonna flip them?   Found the style they remind me of, though did go unsold at $175.

On one hand it's sad.

On the other, considering what my parents are going through, what my inlaws parents will go through, and probably what I will go through financially...the state will own my life savings come nursing home time so what's wrong with living your life financially stupid but enjoying the moments with things you love?

That's my philosophy. Buy your kids fine stuff. Buy yourself fine stuff. Be the grasshopper, not the ant. We're cheap-ass grasshoppers, but grasshoppers nonetheless. Damn, I gotta look again at CapnWes's auctions and drop in a couple bids...see ya!

Welcome to the forum...

 

The better run thrifts will reallocate retail space based on season. More space for shorts in summer and more space for Heavy coats in winter. Some larger GW will carry Heavy Winter coats year around because they have space.

 

 

Remember The GOLDEN Rule : There is a never ending Supply!!!

My local thrifts carry winter coats all year round. I guess that's because I'm in Minnesota and the thought of needing them never leaves one's mind, even when in 100 degree + humidity temps.

I do notice a huge lack in quality donations from midsummer to early fall. I think tax season has a lot to do with it. A lot of wealthy people donate their nice items near the end of the year for tax write-offs and due to the quantity of donations, these last from the end of the year well into spring of the following year. Summertime thrift store sock around here consists of a few nice items here and there with a lot of garage sale leftovers. This theory seems to explain the "Summer Doldrums" in my area, at least.

I call this the "MOM" effect... Kids out for summer and the MOMs are out in full force picking up everyting in their path. I'm waiting for school to start again before I start doing the circuit again. Otherwise its just a waste of gas bringing home one shirt.

Maybe it's me, but I highly doubt it's mom's flipping though racks of suits with kids in toe, looking for Brioni and Kiton suits. peepwall[1].gif

The women in this area are ruthless... phone in hand they are doing searches on the INTERNET. The little ones operate as their henchmen...go grab this or that. It's a rough economy... LOL
