I was talking to her about it and she said "Besides used clothing and cookies, what else do you guys talk about?" It put things into perspective for a split second. Anyway, I'll see if she's up for the task of it for anyone that is interested. Shipping a kilo or two is about €15 from Austria to America. I'm not sure if that's too much to spend on cookies.

That's a literary genius. It reminded me of a Goodwill I saw in Texas. It was insane. There were just boxes of things sitting around and everything was broken and filthy. I have no qualms with dirt or digging through things at places like flea markets and thrift stores, but this was on a new level. I couldn't last more than a few minutes and had no understanding of what people could possibly find in the boxes that would make shopping worthwhile.

Glad to see you got it! That thing wouldn't last 5 minutes in my local stores. Jealous! To everyone else, private label Loro Piana stuff is always worth grabbing unless way overpriced ($50+ for a used shirt, $200 for a jacket, etc).

ouch although yes that is probably accurate especially where I live in suburbia shog[1].gif I should have just checked eBay sorry guys I was just really excited I have never handled either brand before and I was in the area still and wanted feedback, I think I come across as kind of an asshole in this thread and I apologize Internet forum me is different than real me.  in other news I applied to work at the brunello cucinelli outlet by my house if I get hired there will be proxies with employee discounts for everyone!!! fistbump.gif

The question is, does this give your wife bonus points in the Great Cookie War?
"I'm so sorry I don't have as many cookies this year. Some of my internationally famous cookies were sent to the men who begged for them...."
