I agree! I just did the same thing today. What was an even bigger treat was freeing up closet space in the bedroom and the front entrance that had been clogged with heavy winter wear. cold[1].gif

^wish I had enough clothes to make up a winter/fall and a spring/summer wardrobe. That's why I'm here though.

No, I get WHY you listed your stuff so fast. It's the HOW I'm having trouble comprehending.

I gave up on trying to list the rest tonight. We went over to a friend's house for dinner and after a couple of drinks I'm too tired. I use a binder, pictured below, to record the measurements and price. When I buy the item I'll write it down in the binder with the price, then come back to it when I measure it. Not sure how you guys do it, but having the binder seems to save me some time. Once it gets too thick I'll transfer the old pages into a larger binder for storage. I used to record my prices in excel, but that became far too much work and with the Outright program eBay offers, I no longer need my spreadsheet. The biggest time saver is using Garage Sale to list the items.

Oh, and of course Eddie's haul is mind blowing. I would defecate if I saw some of that in a thrift store.

Vintage, midnight blue tux from...

 

 

1950!  I did a little research and it looks like this was the tailoring house that made all of Ronald Reagan's clothing.

Jacket seems to be about a 40, although the shoulders are rather heavily structured.

 Dear God, that's a pretty sweet haul. You could have some sort of weird costume party where everyone dresses up as skeet rags!!

I don't know how good of a find this is, but it's my first Hardy Amies:
