    Its been a while since I posted. I have just been swamped with work and my wife and I took a short vacation.

    I thrifted some shoes that may be a BIG brag. Or they may not.

    The first two pairs are from Wilkes Bashford.

    I am trying to figure out who made these and what the leather might be.

    I think they might be Peccary?

    Any ideas?

    The second pair is also from Wilkes Bashford. On the insole so they are stamped Gravati. So, I know who made them.

    I think these are probably deerskin. (maybe Peccary?).

    Also, a minty fresh pair of Allen Edmonds Cody. I have sold several of these. The brown and chili sell for much more, but these are almost new.

    And a totally random, but still good money item.

    A BMW center cap for a wheel. I wasn't going to buy it until I remembered how much it cost me to replace one of mine.

    You may be right. I don't know. The wingtips have a lot of texture. I still think they might be peccary. But, I am certainly no expert. They have more texture than bison and the leather is SOFT. That was one reason I thought they might be peccary. The second pair (the Gravati) have much less texture than the others. I wonder if they aren't deerskin. But, I really don't know. I'm looking for help on identifying them so I can list them.

    the top pair is probably peccary. Gravati/Wilson & Dean for WB have done lots. I have one of my own that Im listing soon too. Bottom pair could be goat.

    NICE!

    What's that Lighter Blue / White Floral one in the way back? Or maybe thats a shirt? Has that lineny textured fabric, and looks interesting.

    In the field, is this something worth kopping? Any abstract art pros in here? Not familiar with the signature but looks to be a professional framing job from a place in Seattle. Also hand written 105/275. Another similar art piece that is obviously same series. The guy mentioned they had some more larger paintings that came in the same load...[​IMG]

    Also, I got this a while back but forgot to post it up. Is this anything special? Würzburg Hofbräu is a German brewery, but not sure if this is collectible or not.

    Any insight would be appreciated. I am always amazed by the amount of knowledge y'all have.

    Looks like there's a name embossed just below the pencil signature. Dave ____

    Generally I avoid 80s pastel colors since they're not back in (yet) and large pieces that are large editions.
