    Me too. The use of Soviet-era propaganda art colors (red, white, yellow, black) always grab me.

    You mean ketchup, mustard and black? Those colors should make you hungry.

    The only thing of note (I hope) today was this pair of Tod's.

    Better, this is not so much a thrift brag as a gift brag. My sister was just in Italy, and by weird connections, met up with this guy:
    [​IMG]
    You might have seen him on the webs. He owns a leather goods business called Il Bisonte. So she said, "I got you a couple of things from Mr. Bisonte's shop. You'll meet him the next time we go to Italy."

    That sister of mine is pretty alright.

    I agree with 330 on price.they came in different variations.
    The legs and drawer on urs are def teak not rosewood.the top could be rosewood if refinished but i dont see anybody doing that plus it came in a melamine variant.
    I would put that on CL for 800 and take the first 500 that walked in the door but thats just me.i like those.

    Seemingly heart failure. Used steroids so anything's possible, I guess.

    Kimbo died? I just read about him being in the hospital an hour ago. Just found an acquaintance brother was shot and killed in the city early yesterday morning as well. Chicago is becoming a shit hole with gang bangers. 70+- shooting on memorial day weekend. Grill & Chill instead.

    Popped into local salvo today for a breather.
