    [​IMG]Oil Painting signed ToBin with a capital B in the middle. Only relevant artist I can find is Eric Tobin. The To in Tobin is similar but not the full signature. Any ideas?

    it's a palette knife painting. i see quite a bit of this kind of thing and usually assume these are production pieces for tourism or some such. not a great bet imo.

    I haven't touched a thrift shop in weeks. Oxfam has been slim pickings for at least 2 months, and nothing has changed. I did pop in today, and found this Gieves & Hawkes navy blue flannel jacket. I think it's a sport coat, but not sure. From January 2013's collection. Size 42R, but it's so nice around the shoulders I'm tempted to tailor it.

    ...but it is available if any one wants it?

    What's your waist size now? 32 [​IMG] You were easier to buy for when you wore big boy sizes. lol Seriously, their selection is limited. What size pants or shirt were you trying to find?

    Had a great haul (for Cleveland). Pics to come.

    Heads up: Savers is having 50% off here, might want to check your local shop to see if it's the same.

    Found these today, pretty sure the guy ended up not needing them because he was wearing a Structure jacket. Haha

    Also met up with gm-h for a bit today. Super nice guy and good to put a face to an avatar. I think we both did pretty well, and I think I may have finally found some "good" camo. Nat or anybody else ever seen this stuff before? eBay completed listings look promising.

    Before we get excited, I did not thrift this. In fact I did not buy it at NMLC but first time I have seen this tag. I did not know NM would carry this. Pretty dann nice.

    this is a brag thread! if you like it for that price then you did just fine.

    but since you asked [​IMG], the seller probably did better

    Guy wants $400 for this. I'm going to check it out tomorrow, but I do need a new desk, and it seems pretty sweet.

    Exhausting day of slim pickings. Just a few things made it worthwhile. All N/A.
