Lucky you.
Our favorite nanny/sitter was Brazilian. Sweetest girl alive. Sadly, she went back, and now we have no idea what to do when #3 comes in July.
And duly noted re: Mt Vernon.

I should have done that. What a rotten thrifting trip. I think I'll stick to the 'Nati for the foreseeable future.

Org, did that pair of Brooks opera pumps come from Nearly New? I had seen a pair there a month or so ago and passed - low on funds.

laugh.gif Kidding, I wish. Right now in freezing NY.

Had a great haul today, following up last weeks great haul. I promise Ill get pics soon. A little busy around here.

1. Your haunted stories, I believe them all. Nat, yours is the creepiest. Barrels too. When I first started flipping thrifts, I had terrible nightmares of dead people getting pissed I was selling their clothes. No ghosts, but recurring dreams. Sold my soul to the devil for high bids on no reserve auctions and they havent come back since. Whew!

2. The Brazilian everything cheese bread is the fucking bomb. Thanks for all your suggestions. Wes, youre right - I guess I associate some great foods with places I go. Maybe I need more vacations. Never thought of that.

Cesar, the place in Miami is in the Sanctuary hotel, the restauarant there. I forgot the name.

Did a terrible thing today. Found a really nice Holland & Sherry tie...beautiful light blue, totally perfect. I never gets bags from thrift stores due to the whole ice caps melting thing..well, dropped it in a giant puddle in the parking lot. I'm a murderer and I feel like it.

Anyone need any summer stuff?

Yup those are the two colorways the Bean Norwegian sweater comes in. The navy/white is more common and the more iconic of the two.

Stayed outta your territory! smile.gif I checked out Columbus today. Not trying that again.

Side note, any Columbus Ohio members - if you're interested in a dozen Holland & Sherry shirts, and a couple of Astor & Black (sorry, I didn't note the sizes) PM me. Took notes on the few things I passed on while visiting your fair city.

Well, this escalated quickly
post #64271 of 138728

Brought these for $1 at the local Salvation Army. TLC and a press later I have brought them back to life.

 

Anybody know how old these may be, judging by the label?

Hey, Org. I had this suit before selling it recently once I replaced it with a slightly better fitting J Press. I loved it. Did fine on the sale side too.

Is there an acceptableed definition of deadstock? Presumably most of the things we find are deadstock -- that is, no longer for sale until we sell it. Is it the NWT aspect that makes it deadstock as opposed to just something we found and are now selling?

Edit. sorry, minor grammatical brainfart.

Thanks for the bread tips fellows!

I do not have a haunted story but have a couple of fright stories.

Wake up at 2:00am needing an urgent pee. Open my eyes, my room is pitch back, cannot even see my hand close up. Not wanting to get up, I rolled on my side thinking I could maybe sleep through it. My sphincter can hold. Within 5 minutes I knew I had to get up for a pee. Open my eyes again. This time I feel something is wrong. I sense a something looking right at me. Well, I do not believe in Ghosts but there was definitely something amiss here. I could feel it. Now I started shitting bricks – I am positive there is a presence in my room, and this presence has to be demonic in nature. My hairs are standing up on end,. While all this was going on, one inescapable fact was my urgent need to pee. Which will is stronger? My will to stay in bed and shut my eyes pretending nothing is in my room or the will of my steaming bladder full of piss? Eventually the pee won the battle. I had to get up. However, I could not get up without a parting punch. I figured this demon was looking at me perhaps a yard away. I clenched my fist and punched with all my might in the general direction. I hear a yelp and suddenly realized it was my dog. She was being a good dog and was trained to never pee or poop in the house. She was waiting for me to get up to take her outside. I patted my dog said my sorries and let her outside to do her business.


It is not good to give your Mother a fright. We had a washing machine and tumble dryer in a shed outdoors. Getting there involving a fairly long walk to the bottom of the garden. This was a dark night, around 1:00am. I am 16 years old at the time and was smoking in the back to avoid any possibility of been caught. Kitchen light goes on, fuck. It is mom! She would always get up at some crazy hour at night to get munchies. Oh well, she will only be 10 minutes max but I will hide in the shed just in case she sees the red glow of my ciggie. I heard the back door open and shut, oh shit, shit oh shit. Dump the cigarette on the floor and stamp on it to put it out. Scratching my head I realized that this was the worst hiding place because she was probably coming out to get the washing. Well got to milk this now that I am in this predicament. She opened the shed door and I said in a deep voice “Hello There”. I have never ever in my whole life ever seen a person get such a big fright!


I noticed that my youngest brother always looked under the bed to see if there were any monsters there. So one fine evening I duly obliged. Put on a gorilla mask, rolled under the bed and waited for him to come. Naturally when he looked under the bed I made a complementary growl sound and he screamed the house down.
