post #74836 of 114624
Moderately successful weekend.



Beautiful Eton shirt, gold tone and mother of pearl stud/cufflinks set, some ties (l-r Polo, Talbott rep, vintage Gucci, NWT Breuer), a Borsalino Serikon fedora and what probably should take the moderately off my moderately successful weekend description; a NWT Tumi Napa leather carry on. Retail I think is about $575. Unfortunately its got the original buyer's monogram, but its on a leather patch that should be removable.

Can someone help me out with what ever knowledge you know about this brand? Re-sale value? Etc?

thanks!

But it's semi-run of the mill. The flash is a common vivitar, and not one of the models with a decent cult following (283 or 285). What's it selling for/anything else in that case?

 

 

Guys, check your Nordstrom Rack shops. If you've been wanting a pair of casual wingtips, they've marked the AE (I think it was the Big Sur) down to $99. Will it go lower? Who knows, but at that price, they seem to be decent. Other than that, either DM7 is really making the rounds, or it's pretty dry out here. Haven't found much, but then again I've only been hitting a few shops casually. Glad to see everyone else finding some sick stuff.

My assumption must be that the same Italian factory that makes some of the BB line also makes Rubinacci RTW? Anyone have any insights?


Wish I had an answer for you but I don't. I too am curious. Was there a good amount of handwork in them? I would have inquired about them to a sales associate or manager. Someone who would have known how they got there.

These are a great find as these were worn to the point that they were threadbare. Any XLs in there, by chance? biggrin.gif

The size range is women's 4-8 to '70s medium and large. No XLs. These are verified from '74. I'll post a link to better pics and measurements when I get everything sorted out.

I thrifted this same one. It's very nice and with that lining it's surprisingly warm for early-spring/late-fall.

Nope, that camera is a FD mount, where the newer Canon's are EF mount. Canon changed the mount in the late 80's, effectively obsoleting all their older lenses. (They make adapters of course)


Awesome timing, I checked once more before checking out so you saved me $15. Welcome to the forum!

The 50/1.4 and 50/1.2 are the good prime lenses in FD mount.  There may also be a (very obscure) 50/2.0 which is only of interest to some collectors.

Thanks for the info, I have been looking for a macro lens and was hoping to grab something cheaply.

So, Im sitting here on yet another beer, baking in the sun, and it just occurs to me.

Why dont we start a thrift thread scavenger hunt? Could be fun to add some interest to the slim picking late summer months, no?

Anyone else game or am I just bored.

Spoo: IN.

Concealed: Youch.

0 thifting for me, 0 in the foreseeable future. Been listing like crazy between baby feedings. Wife turns to me: "Wow. We're getting a lot less sleep than I thought we would." ORLY? And she wondered why I was OK when Bridget was still at the hospital and the NURSES woke up with her at 2AM.
