I started a new job recently and now I'm weeks behind on the thread. Ah well. The new job has me all over LA, so I'm hoping that'll lead to more thrift time.
Here's a digest of about a dozen 15-minute stops over the last few weeks. Mostly unavailable, except where noted. My wife's been asking a lot of pointed questions recently about when this allegedly lucrative hobby will start meaning something other than new clothes for me, so basically all this stuff is headed for eBay. But if something blows up your skirt, let me know. God, I love saying that.
