    Lol, naw, I just have normal 2 door fridge. I just don't really thrift that much these days. Also, I really stack my thrifts and squeeze them into the freezer. Gus was talking about another meet up for December 5th...See you there?

    Vintage HT overcoat with nice big leather buttons.

    [​IMG]


    Absolutely gorgeous Filson coat with game pocket in back.

    [​IMG]


    Vintage military sweater. Can anyone help decipher the label?
    The only tag, on the collar says:

    SALES TAX 610-1951

    [​IMG]


    Inuit/eskimo cap / tuque.

    Anyone watch SCTV? Remember Edith Prickly?

    A few albums for the home collection. If you like folk music, Stan Rogers is a late, legendary figure in Canadian music.
    This song sort of has a New England, sea shanty experience. These guys are well-drunk:

    If the number is 2193 on the inside, i would pick them up, otherwise I would leave them as you aren't going to make much...and from your extensive question history, I assume they are not for you.

    Just left a thrift...three teenagers got the ties right before...I hear one of them say "best of class"...the one of the others says "Robert Talbott"....ugh...head to the shirts and they get there same time and I hear "Zegna" I'm screwed....what's the world coming to.

    I headed to the next one hoping they didn't come from that direction.

    Yes. Dry cleaning (at a non-environmentally friendly place) or putting your clothes in the dryer on high for at least 30 minutes are sure fire ways to kill them. From what I've read (e.g., http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/factsheets/bed-bugs-faq-fs.html), a typical freezer is ineffective regardless of how long you leave clothes in it for (they don't get cold enough). That said, I put ties in the freezer, as I don't have a rack/shelf in my dryer.

    Non thrift related question. Does anybody own a MS Surface? I am thinking about trading in my Ipad to get one. I like that it has a usb port and office but, I would be curious to hear the opinion if someone who owns one.
