That might be a messy party. Is there any way to I.D. the particular model or edition of a RG shirt? They all seem to have the same CA and RN numbers on the tag. It would be nice to know if any are 'limited edition'

Holy CRAP! Was that a thrift haul Eddie, or more your earlier style?

This is arguably the wrong thread, but I can't possibly imagine inventory (personal or otherwise) without Excel. Ability to sort by pit size when someone wants something is clutch.

Holy cow. My stores have gotten hip to these. IF they hit the floor, they're priced outrageously.

Alright guys, I have a question!

 

My local thrifts all put price stickers right on the heels of the insole in shoes - I am having a horrible time peeling off a couple of these stickers and am worries about scraping up/damaging the insole...

 

Does anyone out there have a way to make this easier?  Please help!

Maybe use a hair dryer to heat up the adhesive on the sticker, which makes it easier to peel off. Some stickiness may be left behind, but that Goo Gone stuff might work. I like to just roll my finger over the stickiness until it all balls up and then can be picked off.

I will give this hair dryer method a try - thank you sir!  

 

 

*EDIT*

 

This worked so well, thanks again!

I picked up a bunch of those when I first started thrifting, they have since been re-donated.

I've come across some crappy windbreakers and parkas bearing his name from that time period, but never the good stuff.

That is not a matter of it not fitting him or not being the right size but it merely not being the right cut, my 40L jackets look similar to that when I first get them and I have to take in the waist but that does not mean I am not a 40L it just means I am skinnier than many companies fit models

Now you have to unpack the winter wear again! You jinxed it!


We in Edmonton woke up to snow falling yet again!

Damn, that is sweet. I've been looking for something like that (at thrift prices) for a while.

I know, now I just need to thrift myself a job that requires the carrying of such a case. shog[1].gif

Edit: Or I could let my wife have it. facepalm.gif
