    The $399.99 price tag on it. Edit: Sloppy thirds? Good grief.

    Found this cycling jersey yesterday. Vintage 1986 or 1987. Made in the USA by Specialized. Good stuff. Had a buyer lined up (owner of a local bike shop) but it's the wrong size.

    must've put down 4 BB makers today simply because I didn't like its high single digit prices. Tried to haggle, they weren't having it [​IMG]. Tho to be fair, those same 4 ties have been sitting in the same corner of that shop for at least 5 weeks.

    I like to buy ties too; problem is it feels like everytime i go thrifting, i pickup one or two and now before I know it my empty tie drawer has exploded to the point where I have to find a different storage method [​IMG]

    Um....yeah. But at this point, I am convinced you only ask questions you already know the answer to.

    I store mine rolled, but laid flat double folded is good too. Hanging is ok, but long term hanging will have a negative effect on the drape of the silk.

    Off to home depot after work tomorrow to pick up a plastic tub to roll/store them in.

    I bought a smaller one and filled it a lot quicker than I thought I would.

    Found my first Ralph Lauren Purple Label today. I was starting to think it was a myth. It is just a polo shirt, but it is my size, so I am happy.

    Get clear ones so you can see most of them without opening it.

    Must fight terror with terror. Hide the single shoe, go back a week later when the employee has admitted defeat and returned the other single. Take yours out of hiding and profit!
