First off please tell me these are shell.

Then the finds for the day.


Two polo Ralph Lauren ties two coach belts and (hopefully shell) black captoe aldens for nordstroms. All available. Oh but one of the polo ties is Wimbledon. Anyone know what that means/does?

They had a few of the W... I used to watch that as a kid so I was stunned to see a Tallgese laying around! Zechs Marquise was a BA

That was probably me just trying to avoid my fears that they aren't shell. I don't think they are but here are some more pics to confirm my suspicions.

Classic merchandise from one of Vivienne Westwood's many, many clothing lines.

I thought a few of you lads would appreciate this article on SMH today - http://www.smh.com.au/money/investing/4-op-shop-buy-sells-for-75000-20130625-2otj4.html

You know the story … the op shop bargain that sells for a fortune. Sometimes you doubt that this ever really happens but it did at an auction in Melbourne last week when Sotheby's Australia sold a 17th century Chinese "libation cup" carved from rhinoceros horn for $75,640 ($62,000 plus buyer's premium). And yes, this rare object really was discovered in a Sydney op shop, and bought for $4.

The seller, who wants to remain anonymous, does the rounds of the local op shops and when he saw this on the shelf he thought, well, that looks a bit special.

After doing some research he sent photos to Sotheby's consultant Ann Roberts, a specialist in Asian Art, who confirmed that it was indeed rare and valuable.
Despite a large chip, she gave it a pre-sale estimate of $20,000 to $30,000.

The winning bid, more than double the higher estimate, came as no surprise to her. Similar objects have sold for close to $90,000 in Australia, and as much as $200,000 overseas.
Ms Roberts phoned the vendor to tell him the results.

"He was very pleased," she says. Finding one in an op shop is not to be expected, although she says she wasn't surprised that they had given it such a token value. "They don't look immediately attractive to the untrained eye," she says.

Sotheby's won't identify the buyer of the rhino horn cup.

These are especially prized by Asian collectors although objects made from materials such as ivory and rhinoceros horn, even ones that are more than 300 years old, are subject to a CITES licensing restrictions before they can be sent overseas.

This story, impressive as it is, pales into insignificance when compared with the Chinese 'Ding' bowl which sold for $US2.225 million at a Sotheby's New York auction in March. The sellers had picked it for less than $US3 at a neighbourhood tag sale in 2007. They were unaware of its potential value.

Not familiar with that label for the cream blazer but it looks awesome, thankfully almost certainly too small for me. Never liked the Geller x Levis collab myself but I'm sure it'll turn a pretty penny if someone here doesn't snatch it up first.

Nice pickup, and looks pretty wearable (meaning it doesn't seem to have a giant ugly VW crest on it). Although looks to be a tiiiiiiiny size.

Any D&G experts out there? Real or Fake? It's pretty well made, so I'm leaning towards real.
