I can email you the gif if you want to edit it. Not really sure how your going to make it look like a small child though...

32. Only came to the thrift/#menswear thing in the last year, when I needed to start making a bigger impression at work without making a big impression on my wallet. Seems to be working out thus far.

She could still hit every note, and her Satchmo impression was spot on.

I'm closer to 40 than I am 20.

Musically I hate most of the stuff people my age love. Can't stand most of the 70s touchstones (unless you count Can and Kraftwerk) and am a huge fan of minimal electronic music from most eras.

But... was also in a band that played with My Morning Jacket and The Twilight Singers.

Rawk! Or something.

My dad listened to Kraftwerk all throughout my childhood. I got a chance to take him to see them the last time they were in the states. About 4 years ago if I remember correctly. For some odd reason, on their 5 city tour, one of those was Milwaukee, on 4/20 no less!!! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif My dad was dancing his ass off! Needless to say a great time was had by all, those dudes still have it in them to bring the house down. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I think it's people who bought it in the 60s and early 70s once the kids were almost grown ('cause they now had some dough) and now these people are either downsizing or going into homes.
It's crazy cause this stuff is sweet and I get a sense that their kids don't want it thinking like "why do I want that old stuff my parents had when I can buy new at Leather Warehouse"
man, in southern california, the market is crazy for them. first it was mission, then cal-modern (heywood wakefield, etc), now danish is through the roof.

38 in years...somewhere between 17-21 maturity wise though.......biggrin.gif

 

Actually started thrifting & selling on Ebay @ 10yrs ago, sold used books (as a hobby..) from thrifts, book sales, etc., for 3 or 4 yrs until i just got too busy w/ work, kids, etc...occasionally would scan the clothes but usually only bought NWT stuff for myself, never for flipping...

 

still usually browse the shelves when Im in there, but I get more enjoyment finding a really great piece of menswear, even if not my size, that some obscure text about something Im not interested in.... but if i find a decently flippable book,  I definitely pick it up....
