    The front of the jacket has a patch that says "black lovers are best".

    Anyways, pardon my continued excitement, but today I found this awesome book I've been pining after for ages -- trashed copies go for $70 on Amazon, etc. Pristine condition, four bucks.

    If anyone ever wants to see books, luckily, I have assloads and assloads to post due to recent good thrift-fortune. But I have held back. Because I sense you do not. :embar:

    I've done decently well with thrifted Santonis. I would guess that Spoo will get at least 2X what I get for them...

    Spoo has an army of followers. While the prices he gets are often nothing short of spectacular, they're going to be hard for most ordinary mortals to achieve other than for perhaps crazy grail finds.

    All the same, I'm looking forward to watching what those go for!

    I also follow *cough* stalk *cough* spoo-ster on the flea-bay!

    Not always true, but thank you! These are also orange Santoni not FAM, so Im guessing a 50 at best.

    I found/left my first pair of Santonis yesterday. Ugly and absolutely beat to crap.
