    I used to have boxes of those damn pencils. If I had all of the limited production RL samples that were given to me in the early 90s, I could retire.

    Epic day with @spoopoker. Details and photos tomorrow because I came home and passed out from exhaustion. Weeks of running on fumes and 3 days of flying until 2am finally caught up to me and I'm told I fell asleep literally mid-Harry Potter. My 9 year old was unable to rouse me.
    Anyway, it was a day unlike I've had in a long long time.

    Don't worry, that's just the normal reaction to Harry Potter.

    Damn G, when are you coming to my turf?

    And spoo. . .
    We don't think that is a Kimono. I was guessing European. Work guys guessed Chinese.

    (Yes, there is now a table of Mechanics in Japan following your thrift finds.) :lol:

    I've found fuck all in the thrifts lately here in the UK. I'm blaming the 'Leave' voters. From now on EVERYTHING is their fault. Wankers.

    There was a lot of work done to ensure that I was able to grab the best of the best. I also went with @GMMcL who was running interference from the Russians for me. He'll fill you in on the rest of that later :)


    Could've also been the margaritas.


    WUSSUP MECHANICS IN JAPAN! :fistbump:

    Agree with these. I also never pass up Tommy Bahama camp shirts with an embroidered image on the back. Those things sell as well as skeets (and probably to the same people).
