So I was having a bad day, wasn't happy at all, and decided hey, lets see if the thrift gods shit on me too.
Strolling through the shoes I see a pair that wasn't there yesterday (yeah having a shop like a quarter mile away, if that, is taking its toll). I find that they have those super shitty white perforated insoles in them and for some reason (maybe it was the welt) I decided it was worth peeling the stuck-down insole back to see who was down there...
Peel meee (Click to show)
Well hello there. That's all you get of those till they're cleaned up. I have a feeling they may still go back though.
Then I found these, figured I'd grab them if for no other reason to find out more about them/Der Bomber. What's the deal with this sole? 3 brass rivets in the front, one in the rear.
These were the most expensive of the night -
Nwot Timberland Abington suede and canvas boat shoes(?). Sewn down leather welt and near spotless vibram soles. Maybe tried on on some carpet. Size..... 14 of all things. Looked these up, spring 2010 apparently.
Clothing wise, all I grabbed was this
Seemed pretty nice, is it? One small spot on the shoulder I'm going to try getting rid of.
So, I guess I wasn't completely shat on, but maybe partially. Also officially recognizing / being recognized by regulars at this store. There's "Cellphone Jose" ( I think I heard him being called that, always checking things on his phone) "The Maven" (50 something woman always sitting down waiting for the next cart/rack to roll out, either on her laptop or phone), and a somewhat gorgeous girl that looks like she has no place being there as often as she is. Very well put together and bubbly. Shares her name with my ex, which you'd think would be enough of a deterrent. Wait, what... Are our 60 minutes up already doc?
