You're probably not too far off the mark. We get a few decent snowfalls in my city a year. However, go outside the city and they'll get piles of it. I'll try to dig up some pictures from a long time ago that show the snow as nearly taller than me. The snow that's been posted has been pretty impressive though!

Here are a couple of photos from last spring at my uncle's, about an hour away. The snow is melting, but you can see the height in the front:

First find with a story. I am in a consignment shop and looking for obviously extraordinary things that I can't find in thrifts. So I feel something that is quite amazing, pull it out, and bang Kiton...but not just any Kiton. I take it to the register despite the $88 price tag because I want this bad boy right? So the lady at the register is like, oh you stumbled across the Burberry suits, that were priced at $150-250. And I say no, just this. And she says, well Neiman Marcus is still a good brand right? 14 Micron, Super 180s, $9000 retail. Boom.

I removed your photos from the quote, but awesome haul! Really, it just kept going! Well done and congrats! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

1 store today. A wool square (with machine sewn edges. I won't tell if you don't). Currently de-mothifying in the freezer.

 

How often do you freeze treat your articles? Sometimes, I forget I freeze treat my purchases and leave them in the freezer for over 3 weeks. lol

Hey man, were you referring having too much personal information on SF like your real name and such? Dude, I give you at the most, 3 months before you come back with an alias. This place is like crack. You can't just up and leave. It will get you, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but down the road, it will get you!

 

Dude, I, too have a bunch of stuff to ship to you! Naw, JK, I only have like, maybe, one or two shirts in your size...Gonna go hit the shelves soon, so don't worry! Have fun on your hiatus!

I suggest you go hit a few stores. You will come up with some amazing items. I was so picky and choosy due to time and money constraints. If you need specifics, email me.

 

Everyone is quoting the Kiton, my favorite is actually both Chester Barrie coats. Those things are boss. The lining on the car coat? or whatever that is, is trippy.

Some of the women had pretty interest outfits. But the guys, mehhhhh, weak sauce! A few of our members should get on there to show them how it's done! Like, POW, shit just got real. son! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

For starters, I'll nominate Orgetorix. He always has good thrift fits.
