Looks fake to me, but I've been wrong once before.

Pretty sure it's real....but would love to hear anyone elses input.

Thank you Edwardthefirst! I've never considered a tweed vest but I may have to start. It is a very cool piece. Thanks again! Happy Holidays!

Was surprised today with an early Christmas gift from the 'rents, since it's questionable whether I'll be able to join them on vacation to the family cabin this year. They came out of a thrift--learned from the best.

Art Deco (we're guessing--couldn't find much info after a brief search) copper Dachshund bookends:

Those are fantastic.  It kills me what some of you can pull out of Marshalls, Maxx and equivalent.  It's all Polo/Hilfiger all the time for me.

I just listed my first Duchamp a couple hours ago, got a bid within the first couple minutes, so :thumbs-up:

Beat me to it.  Saw your response about clothes finding their way into your personal closet.  I love the fact that almost every day now is a "thrift fit" day for me.  Except for shoes, in the short 9 months I've been doing this, I've replaced 75% of my wardrobe with items I would never pay retail for, I dress 1000% better than I used to, and have extra $ in my pocket.

I have nothing to post, self imposed thrifting ban until my entire backlog is listed (or put in my closet).

Interesting. I never came across that bit of info when I was researching Harris Tweed.

Dont usually pick up Southwick, but this was pretty nice and a solid blue flannel

 

 

 

 

Not thrifted but 85% off retail should flip OK.

Rant! Amazing book! I wish he'd finish writing that sequel already. And Vonnegut, I need to read more Vonnegut. Cool bookends! I thrifted some handmade pirate ship bookends this summer which look awesome on my bookshelf.
