If the number is 2193 on the inside, i would pick them up, otherwise I would leave them as you aren't going to make much...and from your extensive question history, I assume they are not for you.

Yes. Dry cleaning (at a non-environmentally friendly place) or putting your clothes in the dryer on high for at least 30 minutes are sure fire ways to kill them. From what I've read (e.g., http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/factsheets/bed-bugs-faq-fs.html), a typical freezer is ineffective regardless of how long you leave clothes in it for (they don't get cold enough). That said, I put ties in the freezer, as I don't have a rack/shelf in my dryer.

Non thrift related question. Does anybody own a MS Surface? I am thinking about trading in my Ipad to get one. I like that it has a usb port and office but, I would be curious to hear the opinion if someone who owns one.

Great Haul all around, but I especially love this coat. :slayer:

 

I'm going to be hitting a lot of stores tomorrow and Monday. To all the Kiton, Brioni, Isaia, Lobbs, and EGs in Southern California:

Ethrift brag. Two pairs of Hoka One One running shoes (Bondi B). Price was about 2/3 of the retail price of one.

Love you guys. Miss you guys.

 

Haven't thrifted in a month. Free time spent trying to thrift a house.

 

Had some time very early this morning. Saw an ad for a local dry cleaner doing an unclaimed clothing sale, everything $5 and everything obviously pressed and cleaned. All of it happening at a VERY empty small thrift store. Cool, I thought.

 

Pull into parking lot at 7:45, and there is a line of 75 people in front of me. I hear the owner of the store mentioning 8000 garments and mentioning people camped out to be there in line. Line reaches about 100+ people by 8 and this tiny store allows all people in there at once. Could not move. Could not even look at a garment. Almost went Frenchy on some people when they grabbed 20+ suits, threw them in the cart, just to sort them out on their own time. I had to lower my shoulder just to get myself to the exit five minutes later.

 

Dammit if it didn't give me the itch though.
