    There copies of the original molds. Those are ceramic molds. She made them originally from clay bisque totally different process. They made thousands of copies of those molds I'm sure. Those molds would be really yellow from firing over the years not bright white. The original has the trademark in the back of her kneck. I say good call leaving them.

    Thanks. Yeah wasn't think they're valuable or anything. Just it's always cool to stumble across something a little unusual. There were also some random figurines, nativity statuettes, etc. I did buy a half dozen tiny baby heads. Not sure what for but seemed like the thing to do.

    I know you are joking but if I saw someone actually do this, I am not sure what i would do. I have had my credit card stolen like 4 times. If I ever met someone that stole credit cards I am pretty sure id beat the ever loving shit of out them

    @cpmac7 He's serious.

    ..but you're right about the identity theft people, although I'm not sure how these two topics relate. I've had mine stolen once and my girlfriend has her's stolen on a seemingly regular basis. They always try to make big purchases at wal mart for some reason. Figures.

    I think I'm joining you all ... and my daughter is excited to help sell some of my finds. I was on a trip out of town, and had time to kill:

    I was thinking "Hawaiian shirts" instead of "Tom Ford" when I walked in ...

    Good. Birkenstocks are atrocious and deserved to be burned, unceremoniously.

    Thriftfit: these Carrera 5512 are insane, I do not dare using them further from home than on the porch. Also: thrifted muslimgauze t-shirt, gets strange looks from arab people due to the similarity to the IS logo... And a thrifted Our Legacy jacket.

    Non Thrifting question and please don't hesitate to take it off the thread and PM me.

    Wife and I just booked a last minute 4 night trip to Vegas for next week. I have been before and she has not. Staying at the Palms and already have reservation to see KA one night and eat at Scarpetta at the Cosmopolitan one night. So she can try a Vegas Buffet, I am thinking of breakfast at the Wynn one morning as I have also never seen this hotel and hear its worth the trip.

    Other than the usual suspects (go to old town and do the fremont experience, see the Bellagio fountains, etc.), do any of you know any special or must do things out there. We will not have a car. The stuff above is going to take a good part of our budget so any ideas for great deals or coupons is appreciated. I know everyone on this thread loves dicounts.

    Also, where is the best place to shop and see some amazing high level stuff, Kiton, TF, BC, etc.

    I have heard it is probably not worth my time to even try thrifting.

    Thanks,

    While I would love to try this sometime, The expense is going to keep it out of this trip.

    Last time we went I booked rather cheap front row tix to the Beatles show and had a blast. As for the high end stuff it's everywhere. I'd rent a car and drive around, do the drive to Primm and see the last call etc.
