Dear sir and/or madam: you've posted a woman's trench, tried to proxy London Fog which are about as plentiful as tattoos on a stripper yet easier to find, and ecco shoes for sale (twice). Please read some of this thread and soak it in. No one is asking you to take your ball and go home; we just don't play with that sort of ball on this court.

Haven't thrifted in months and I've totally lost track of this thread. Glad to see nothing's changed.
Anyone have a pet peeve at their thrift stores? I entered this thrift once, about a year ago but avoided it because well...this is why.
1. Their prices are too high as in, $15 for any pair of shoes $35 for a toaster oven type expenseive.
2. They only take cash. Fine, I get it, but let people know first. I had to leave the store, and walk to the cloest convenience store and buy 2 scratch-offs to get cash back (I won $5 though...lol).
3. They have no organization. Literally none. Think I am kidding? Here are two pictures of their shoe selection. Piled high and no rhyme or reason. Mens and womens combined and the matching pairs aren't next to each other. Really?
4. You are thinking this can't get worse, right? WRONG! They don't have air conditioning. That may fly by some of you, but this is Florida. It's fucking hot, and I thought I was going to die..lol
With that said, came out with these two. Women's Birks and Hanover Shells (8D). Thrift gods made me fight for these shells...haha
Warning: Mediocre finds.
BB Loro Piana Blazer (43R)
Picked this up because it fit, barely, despite the size tag. Anyone know the maker? Real smoke MOPs, nice linen/silk fabric (I think) and great pattern. Sorry pic is sideways. Just couldn't leave it. Seen the label before (and not recalling anything special) but figured I would ask.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
AMAZING Dolphins Starter nylon jacket. Too bad it's a medium. Couldn't leave it behind, though. I'll frame it if I can't find a good home.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Trafagar braces. Black floral/paisley and "Dog eat dog world" themeWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Wish summer could stick around! PRL pants (SS ones had a 20 in the pocket...channeling my inner cap'n)
LOL! For sure those are Chucks, the USA thing I made up, but yeah, USA made converse have a following. Especially Thailand. Those Florida thrifts got some good stuff, but really got to sift through the stuff. I do not think i could go without the A/C in one.
