Nice Rando! Keep brushing!

 

Haven't made it to any thrifts lately. Been grabbing Vineyard Vines ties at multiple Marshalls for $5-7 a pop left and right though.

 

Attended a birthday celebration tonight for a few friends. At one point, in walks cute girl/trophy wife that was our age with what must have been over $100 in cupcakes (that's like a few dozen- Welcome to LA). Hubby (Older... Tan) follows behind in you guessed it, full skeet regalia. Very nice folks actually. Finally got to check off seeing typical RG consumer in the wild/in action. Best of all, as we're leaving, I hear that sweet melodic sound, and look up to see them idling away in a new Ferrari. Figures.

I am into the Tom Ford for men at the moment. I think this new Chanel fragrance is pretty nice though!

I am also quite keen on Polo blue for some reason.

I've been quite content with my Olympus EP-2.  It is based on the micro four thirds standard, which has a smaller light sensor thus putting a DSLR in a smaller package.  That said, it sometimes struggles in low light and the two lenses I own suffer severely from shutter lag.  A $600 investment so far with one prime lens in addition to the body and stock lens.

It works great in well lit situations and is very adaptable, just like a bigger brother DSLR.  You can shoot in raw, and if you're using a tripod setup with a remote trigger, this could be a wise choice.  The EP-3 is on the market already and there's some other camera Olympus is touting as the top end m4/3 , and that is the OM-D.  I've heard great things about it at MSRP $1,299.

This IS the thrift thread! Make sure that you swing through your local reputable pawn shops for deals on recent cameras. Don't forget that the sticker prices in these places are just starting points for negotiations! Yeah, I know. It might be hot. Then again, it might not. I'm not the used camera/power tool cops. The pawn shop is a business and I have to assume they are reasonably honest.


The camera was marked $65 IIRC and I got it for $40. It was 3 years old at the time. I got the aluminum collapsing tripod for $5 still in the box at Value Village. Make sure that it still has the quick release plate or "shoe" that attaches to the bottom of the camera.

I have a Nikon D3100 and LOVE it. I do find that once and a while though I can take SUPER UP CLOSE pictures of rivets and things to the extent that I would like, but it's my own fault and need to buy a macro lense. Overall the thing is awesome though and they are getting cheap on used. I find the 18-55 lens that come with it is perfect for everything I need for ebay even that I have a prime 35mm I've stopped using it for ebay as I find the bokeh is too much for the upclose detailed pictures and I can't get everything to focus correctly.

 

 

These are what I'm looking for, right?

Great finds. The Lubiam isn't really that awesome, but you should have plenty of takers at that rare size.

Accidental post, so I'll just mention:

Grabbed some Vuarnet sunglasses and a Trafalgar Burmese Python belt.  Passed on a Polo (Italy) Camelhair Polo Coat with a torn pocket.

Straw Borsalino. This made me cry, but I'm hoping it can be fixed. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

That hat sat there for a week.

Pretty sure he is a 36S hence why he bought it. (I looked at his profile)
