    Good to hear. I was almost surprised how quick an easy the whole ordeal was. New card arrived today too.

    I liked your post because it was funny, not because I thought it was a marsupial as well.. [​IMG]

    Mine too.

    Though I was a little disappointed in the slowness of it all. In the past paypal/the bank has always contacted me about the suspicious transactions before I even knew they happened. Though the difference is probably that they happened in the middle of the night. Nonetheless, still a pretty quick turnaround.

    Speaking of the platypus, any e-thrifters who roamed eBay in it's early days remember this? For some reason I thought it was hilarious and have had this .gif saved for over 12 years.

    I'm not sure where all the fraudulent activity took place, but they called me once for a jewelry purchase that I did not authorize. The computer system probably has a way of detecting when to take action. Granted we are on the road quite a bit and cover a large radius. So the suspicious activity has to be pretty out of the norm with what i assume would be a large chunk of change.

    Congrats Nataku! I wonder what high quality baby items show up at the thrift shops? A whole new section of the store to explore. :)

    Thanks! Oh I've stocked up on everything from toys to clothing to sing-along DVD/CD box sets. Also picked up a bunch of minty children's LPs to get this little guy started on vinyl. :)

    I thought you knew the only thrift thread rule! Pics or it didn't happen.

    Because obviously if we were really doing favorite marsupials, I'd have said Thylacine.

    Obviously.

    Denim bros! I've just coped a gently used Iron Heart 634-xhs 25 oz. selvedge jawz for 80% off the retail price!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The downside is I prolly won't get it until next year because it would give me another excuse to hang out with 38R in the land of the rising sun. @troika @highvoltorb @#denimheadsunite

    Remember: frenchy is respected here because he finds a lot of awesome stuff, and he doesn't post here (and instead posts on a personal blog) because of his attitude.
