I bought a merino wool Theory sweater for $12, this was my 1st time actually buying anything from thrifting. Im kinda even surprised I found it. Also saw some brand new KMW jeans with red/blue selvedge but was definitely not my size (I can get it if anyone wants it). Hopefully I stumble across some more finds

Muffler. Silk with wool/cashmere/wool and cashmere? backing. 50" x 10". No maker. No content tag. I'm thinking it's from a defunct local men's store, but who really knows.

pm me if you want to be on the selection committee (spoo and DM7, i'm looking right at you).
once we hammer out the criteria and logistics, we'll open it up for submissions. winner will be announced on Dec. 31, 2012.


Man, I wish I had anything to enter that was worthy of this competition. Closest I've come is probably the Purdey hunting jacket or W&G bush poplin safari jacket, and those are like 1/10th the find the stuff in this competition will be.

Not only that, but one of the few really good stores is doing some serious hoarding. Just scraps are hitting the floor. Today I also witnessed a regular customer getting treated very rudely there by whom I believe is the new processing manager and an employee (cracking jokes about them publicly). Employees in general at this store are pretty rude. They don't acknowledge your presence, they push and shove and are just overall unpleasant. It seems that the better the customer you are, the worse you get treated. frown.gif
I did manage to scavenge one nice item from a store I've almost stopped going to.

Ah shit. Guessing at least one of these are stores I frequent as well?
