Contemplated purchasing a vintage Post War Lionel train set for about 45 minutes. It has a bunch of the original boxes, two engines and tenders. Even some cool automated stuff. It was $500 and had just too much damage, so I left it. I would have had another $500 - $750 in repairs. It would have been nice to expand my set, but was just a bit too much. Was saddened by its condition, which was getting worse by the minute - since it was within reach of unwatched children.

 

On that note, if you guys ever see any empty Lionel boxes, they are an instakop.

A couple summers ago, I picked up a giant moving box at a yardsale of maybe 50 empties or so. Cost me $2.....sold individually for around $500 total.  

 

If you come across the large set box, which would hold all the smaller boxes and their contents, they can be worth around $500 on their own.

+1. I got mine 2 weeks ago. Wear them for all my thrashy outdoor work, saving my new Merrills (which I paid $250+ retail for) for true hiking.

Pretty sure I know where you got that. That store was packed with good stuff at high prices, but got cleaned out sometime before last Thursday. There was a Corneliani linen blue suit that fit me like a glove, but I couldn't justify the $500 they wanted for it.

Shirt: John Varvatos. Thrifted by me.
Tie: BB Makers. Thrifted by me.
Waistcoat: Orvis wool. Traded with Ken P.
Jacket: BB Makers cords. Traded with bytor (spelling?).
Jeans: NnF Elephant 2. Bought on B&S.
Shoes: Allen Edmonds. Got from JP.

I was in a hurry so I did a sloppy job at tying my tie.

Just mho, but the 3 piece up top is a bit formal for the jeans. A sweater I can see, and the tweed/cord is fine. I might also go for a knit or wool tie, though the one in the corduroy pic is probably informal enough to go with the jeans.


Anyway, 2 stores yesterday. 0% open. ffffuuuu.gif

 You guys are making everyone crazy over thrifting! The ladies at a local Goodwill were saying that they were being swamped on Saturday. I did get a couple of nice cufflinks and a few ties but that's all I found.

I still can't believe the lyric "I wear your Grandpa's clothes" isn't a sufficient deterrent.

It should be "I SELL your Granddad's Clothes"

The lady and I made a last minute decision Saturday morning to see what a couple smaller towns about an hour and a half south of us had to offer. Struck out most places but found the following at one stop:

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, R1.1.1.||B2||T0JKX0lEPTRmNjc4MmQ3YTg0NzI0NzIwNGY2N2NhYzdlYjNmYjA1MTE3ZDVlZTJmODg5fHxTRUxMRVJfTkFNRT1hYnVib2x6fHxPUklHSU5BTF9FQkFZX1FVQUxJVFlfU0NPUkU9NHx8Q1JFQVRJT05fREFURT0yLzExLzEzIDg6MzkgQU0=
Bullock & Jones Cashmere Blend. Medium.

A couple of vintage winter coats in my size (debating if I need any extra winter coats in my life)

*

Also a Burberry button down for ebay. Struck out everywhere else but at least got to enjoy my favorite pizza place in southern Minnesota so it's ok.

 Yeah, there was a lady DJ on a Balto hip hop radio station raving about the song. They announced they were going to play it for a half hour ahead of time. They had to bleep out a lot of the lyrics. biggrin.gif

 

 I wasn't too impressed. dozingoff.gif

I seem to remember there being a fairly detailed discussion of the early years of PRL contracting and manufacturing in the Ralph biography Genuine Authentic by Michael Gross. I can't remember the specifics off the top of my head, and I don't have the book, but if anyone does it'd be worth looking it up.

Since I found time between work an thrifting. Running into Friskydingo in a GW helped get me back, too.

I'm going to try to get a "best of" post on here with pictures of all the good things I've found since I moved to the Pacific NW.

Had to go out today. Found some eBay fodder, all available. Oddly popped my Versace cherry with the tie, then literally in the next store found a navy Versace jacket. Slight mothholes, not sure if an orphan, but didn't have to do any debating as it was $65. rotflmao.gif




Also popped my Robert Graham cherry, lets see how that works out.

Just passed on a RLPL full navy pinstripe suit. $150 and rather ugly in my opinion. I did however pick up a vintage Jansport made in the USA hiking backpack for my wife for our trip to Montana and Glacier National Park this spring. Pics when she gets back into town with the camera.
