    Seriously love this fit both for the clothes and for how it showcases the diversity of our senses of style here. I love it. Where are you geographically that you thrifted a recent Givenchy tee? That's nuts!

    Here is my latest pickup. Not from a thrift store but I brought home my two new roommates tonight, Miggy and Princess (Go Tigers!)

    ZOMG I loves me some kittehs. Cute! You can tell who the brave one is already.


    I published a book in 1998 that's in the Library of Congress. You make something (book, record, CD, map, print, film, etc), send it to the Library of Congress (get a LCCN # first, along with your ISBN / ISSN or whatever else you need), and poof: it's considered to be in the Library of Congress. They accept and catalog all of it, put much into storage, get rid of some of it, and put the remaining items out for public consumption. I went on a LoC kick a few years ago trying to figure out exactly what they did with all that stuff.

    That said, I'd say it doesn't really matter if it's in the LoC - if it's original, it's a something.

    (NB: if you wanna buy my book, I let it go out of print and it's a "collectible" now - here it is on Amazon) - I am not any of those sellers and no idea why the book is fetching those prices. I have a stash and am letting them ferment a couple more decades.

    Spoo,

    Matter of fact, my wife's father is an antique map dealer at the Arader Gallery in Manhattan. He could tell you more than you ever wanted to know about that thing. Will PM to follow up.

    Nice find.

    Very cool - I'm a big fan of the re/search, disinformation press, apocalypse culture stuff. If you decide to part with a copy sooner than expected, feel free to PM me.

    Sounds like you should sell a few autographed first editions.

    ^^and the little bag. That made them easy to ID. I was stoked with some nice Boss links on a french cuff shirt I bought last week, Still haven't found decent links, or cash in the pockets (other than spare change) just a matter of time.

    PM's sent - and you guys are all so awesome. I love this thread and its willingness to help, the diversity of knowledge that abounds, and the general swollen brain of the hive. :inlove:


    Edit- update - took the back off that bad boy hoping to find it lined with old bank notes and stock certificates... instead, found this :plain: still cool for the mancave though!

    And here I was about to suggest using some lemon juice and a hair dryer to try to find a hidden treasure map.
