A very special thanks to FaceOfBoh for coming by with a care package for my family during some rough times. I did thank him personally when he came by, but I think he also deserves some public recognition for his actions.

..thanks again!

This man sounds like a truly awesome fellow.

I'm finding this to be true. To paraphrase Mayor Daley, go early, go often. 

 

Case in point, last night I was by a goodwill at about 8PM. did a walk thru of shoes, ties, and a run down the suits. This morning, I had to be in the same parking lot again, and since I was there at 9:30, figured I'd walk thru again. no shoes. no ties, but one guy donated 3 harris tweed jackets, one BB Cashmere blend sports coat and a Canali jacket. Not there 12 hours before. 

 

I grabbed all 5. 

 

Someone just recently mentioned finding tweeds with moth holes said to hold them up to the light so before I went to pay, I held them each up to the window and discovered that one of them had 3-5 moth holes, all small. 

 

So I left with the other 4. 

 

Again, this forum continues to pay dividends.

You're welcome! It was the least we could do.

Now, if I could only figure out how to do a round of homemade cinnamon buns for the forum, I'd probably have some decent trade fodder!

PS tell your wife I'll be sending her the secret recipe.

Blues: had to pass on a fur-lined J Press overcoat. (Too big for me, and they wanted $60.)

Nobody here should be buying those to wear. Wingtip kiltie tassel loafers = the trifecta of ugly.

Hi all, just checking in here.  I have been super busy and SF just drifted out of my consciousness for a few months until fall compelled me to break out some tweed.  Any quick highlights since mid-August? Oh, and my deepest apologies to any unseen and unreplied PM's that were sent during that period.

I have been thrifting pretty frequently, actually, but mostly for electronics and housewares.  I will try to get photos of my highlights, but they include what I think is a pretty nice silver-trimmed Bavarian porcelain 10pc dinner set in near-mint condition (I know china is common, but not in so large a set or in such great condition), and a Technics SL-PD5 cd player.  Also have photos of clothing items laying around somewhere, but will dig them out in time.

On an unrelated note, for opera-lovers in the NYC area or with Met Live telecast access -- I highly recommend seeing The Nose, by Shostakovich!  One of the most visually interesting productions I've seen (though I admittedly have a taste for the modern).  A rare treat.

Jeez! The thread is on fire!!! :slayer:

WHY OH WHY DID I LEAVE HOME TODAY WITHOUT MY SCAVENGER HUNT BADGE?




But I made up for that, three feet later, by pulling out this Canali leather jacket. Both of these items were in the womens outer wear section.

I stand corrected, although I'd want to see the whole coat.

+1 those things look like they were created as part of a practical joke.

Love the jacket (same one you rocked in a past fit pic?) but a little less sure of the cropped pants + fur-lined slipper boots. Take a full body pic!

All outer pockets basted shut; maybe this lining tear prevented it from being sold retail.

Another pair of horse butt shoes today. That's 2 pairs in less than a week. Pics will be coming soon.
