Hell yeah, old ugly crap should stay there. Although how does one define ugly? In some peoples minds a Hermes Print or Versace silk shirt is fugly. To others it is a work of art. I am probably the most anti early mid 90's and 80's here (I actually only like Versace from this period). Real old vintage, I would certainly pick up. I would even pick up a mink gown worn by Countess Bathory .
Working on signal to noise ratio problems right now, keeping me away from thrifting. I should have been a lawyer instead of scientist / engineer. As Einstein once said "If only I had known I would have been a plumber"
