    Also, this joker must have a lot of time on his hands running around sticking notes in suits in thrifts.

    Glad you found that, but gotta ask: Why were you interested in an electric blue polyester anything? And I'm thinking now what would have happened if it got flipped on the 'bay with the new owner finding it. The look on his/her face would be priceless.

    Here's my finds so far from this week. Nothing crazy but I'm content. Everything I found today (minus a pair of Lululemon studio pants for my wife) was vintage.

    ** I cannot for the life of me figure out why some of my photos upload sideways (and now upside down as well)**

    Vintage 40's/maybe 50's deerskin jacket. Tagged a 46, fits me well (I'm a 42). Will likely hang onto this for a little while. My coat closet is bursting at the seams, so I need to figure something out.

    Here's some better shots of those 1940's suits I came across on Monday. I'm very happy a SFer PMed me and I was able to find these a good home. No moth holes to be found. They're in amazing condition for their age. Better condition than some suits that I come across that are less than 5 years old!

    How about saving the play by play while in the store and take pictures of everything when you get home? Then show us what you got, words don't excite here. The operating motto in this thread is "Pics or it didn't happen".
