It was a mix of 80's and classic rock. All in NM condition. They wanted $3/LP. The stuff I passed on were about 8 Talking Heads LPs, The Specials S/T, some more common 80's new wave titles from New Order, Heaven 17 and Human League. Bunch of classic rock from about 1973-1975. (CSNY, Yes, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Doobie Brothers, etc). Some country-rock too. Good titles but overpriced at $3/each when I come across them at .50 every so often. I think I grabbed most of the interesting stuff.

Thinned out the herd at the end after finding out the price. Came down to what was pictured out of 41 LPs. The ones I was on edge of leaving behind were a Yes S/T from 1969 and The Hello People - Handsome Devils. I have both but they are so obscure I have a hard time leaving them behind when I see them. Also left a nice copy of Rolling Stones Flowers (stereo pressing so meh) because the owner wrote his last name in large letters with Sharpie on the front of the cover. ffffuuuu.gif

I picked these up last week on the cheap and forgot to post em. Standard thrift prices so easier for me to pick up. Can I redeem myself? Didn't know there were so many 80's new-wave/punk fans on here! These are available if anyone wants em.

The black one is New Order's Blue Monday b/w The Beach 12" single. The rose cover is New Order's Power, Corruption & Lies

Funerals. According to SF member mimo, every man should have a black silk tie on hand to be worn to funerals. I found out yesterday that I have to attend a distant relative's family funeral on Friday. It occurred to me that I have ties for interviews, weddings, summer get togethers and so on but I had no idea what I was supposed to wear to a funeral. When I performed a search of styleforum, the answer came back as ...

Solid. Black. Silk.

I had nothing. I considered sending a frantic PM to Spoo et.al. to plea for one to be overnighted but that seemed extravagant. I had a little time this morning but Goodwills proved to be a dry hole for this item. Looking back over around two years of sorting through ties, I don't recall ever seeing a solid black tie. I stopped in JAB but I would have had to pay $79 for one or I could have bought 5 for $80. facepalm.gif I don't need to spend that kind of dosh on a JAB tie(s) so I kept looking.

Nordstrom Rack had Calvin Klein for $17 but they were ALL extra long. I tried a double 4 in hand but it looked ridiculous. The $15 Kenneth Coles were too skinny. The other crappy brands were some sort of tone on tone. baldy[1].gif

Burlington. Nicole Miller. Hecho en China. 100% silk. $10. I dare you to tell me that you can tell it's a crap tie once it's around my neck and hiding under my suit coat.

Keep your eyes peeled guys. When you need one of these, you NEED it now. teacha.gif

Guess what I dont have..... but just won for $10 shipped..

Haha, yeah. I feelz you on the bar, and holy god on the job searching.

I spent today (and will spend tomorrow) moving back in with my parents, wooooo legal job market! On a run dropping stuff (emptying my childhood room closet to make room) at SA, ran in, snagged a couple like-new ginghams for myself, super pretty. Also a dirt cheap Harvie and Hudson plain white shirt just to flip (for $3 couldn't resist). Left an older but great quality purple gingham Gitman Bros. (the good kind). Does that flip well, I know it's an SF fave but dunno if it is on eBay (where it's harder to tell amongst the labels).

Unfortunately had to pay Goodwill boutique pricing but I had a hunch I could reunite those Prada pants I found yesterday with the jacket. I was correct. Still a decent overall price for the pair.

Twas 9 bucks, and after a day of lugging (mostly) shirts I couldn't bring myself to grab something I'd never flipped before.
