Styleforum Top Picks
Lots of woman check out menswear but few walk away with armfuls of clothes. I presume a lot pick up stuff for their husbands or boyfriends.
1. Thrift stores are getting busier.
2. People of both sexes are getting more clued up to the flipping avenue.
3. There has been a radical increase in young people thrifting (college age to low 30's).
4. Woman used to outnumber men around 2/1, now it is getting closer to even.
5. The vehicles have improved in the parking lot. See lots of trucks / BMW's now!
I'm seeing the same trends. I've seen a lot more #menswear looking dudes at the thrifts in the last few months.
Believe it or not, Brubeck is still alive and performing.
Nice score. That's a great looking jacket.
Corn on the cob from the end of last week. First time pairing up orphans in-store, that was sweet. Let me know if it "tickles your teak" the right way, because if not, I think it'll be taking a trip back to the shop before Friday.
40 regular you say? Must resist urge to PM.
I wish they had these at the Philadelphia store, or hopefully they don't now since I was there a week and a half ago. That thing is awesome, and I hear it is some pretty quality stuff.
From the way Klobber was talking I thought everyone was like 35+
so this morning went to my local goodwill and saw this nice vintage aluminum chair,its no Herman Miller but i liked it nonetheless and have some extra leather i could lay on it.
BUT...i had a latte in my hand so i was just too lazy to roll it out with one hand.i knew i was gonna stop by again later in the evening on way home and if it was meant to be it would still be waiting for me.
so i get back around 7,lay out the eight bucks for the chair when i spot this behind the counter
VINTAGE GRANADA LES PAUL CUSTOM in mahogany finish from '76.what else do i see? the matching amp also from 1976...i plug here in and she starts screaming louder then a $2000 a night hooker.
i lay out the cash and take her home...i shall call her "Sweetness"
