    Pretty insane for a thrift price but if it's working it would be worth it. Definitely for personal use and probably some room left if you're trying to flip it. However, if it's got problems, hopefully they are ones you can fix yourself (they often are) or something that would be easily fixed by someone else. I don't know how into vintage stereo equipment you are so I apologize if you already know all this. Thrifting for stereo equipment, LP's, cassettes etc. is what got me into the whole thrifting game. I've come across some nice stuff! But sadly, hardly anything these days. Long story short, very cool piece and you generally can't go wrong with Silver-Faced Marantz.

    Going on a cruise to Key West next month.

    I was stoked to find there is a Salvation Army store on the island!

    Wife will not be impressed...

    Even if its dead buy vintage electrinics.the good stuff i mean.
    There are hordes of guys who love nothing more then fixing this stuff.
    Like thats literally their passion and almost like a personal challenge to get them working again.these guys look at schematics like some people look at Playboys.

    A big thanks to @dappercanadian for my thrift exchange gift! He sent it in December and the post was a bit slow to get it to me. Either way, it is an awesome package full of incredibly useful things. Check out that RLPL!

    I've been reading the forums for a while now, but keep seeing a few terms I don't recognize. What is meant by "skeet" and "kop?"

    Recent finds...

    AWESOME Luciano Barbera Sartoriale by San Andrea (N/A)

    Wool/linen/silk (my favorite blend) (N/A)

    This must be reversible as it snaps on both sides. The wool side has no pockets and the tag would need to be clipped. Wool is an oatmeal color. Really nice/cool. Size EU 54, but fits like a medium. Available.

    Woolrich pea coat, made in the USA

    A bit worn and women's, but I'll take it. Oh, and missing a belt.

    You guys have to worry about the Halloween section in October. I found this in the Fasching (Carnival) dress-up section. It's small, I suppose possibly child-sized, but I had to save it from a costume and I wouldn't leave it for €2.50. The son took the store over by 1926 I believe, and the double-headed eagle implies it's pre-WWI.
