That reminds me, I found a red, elbow-patch Pendleton hunting shirt a few months ago that was not only NWT, it still had a security tag on it - the plastic kind that looks like a bloated mauve tongue depressor. Needless to say the thrift shop didn't have one of those machines that takes them off. It took me 40 minutes with a Leatherman to get the thing off.
LA thrifters, I'm about to blow up a spot, but I don't think it matters since today is it's last day of operation. Pour out your cheapest 40 for St. Joseph's on Lincoln in Santa Monica, original home of a bunch of great shit I found this year. I stopped by at lunch today and it was a depressing, threadbare mess. They're doing $20 to fill a plastic bag with as much as you can, but if any of you can find anything remaining of value I'll be very impressed.
So the question is, where are Santa Monica Catholics going to take their Burberrys when they get tired of them now? I've got some hunches.
