    http://www.ebay.com/itm/360923551918?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649 with free shipping since I bought a number of different items. For some reason I thought tyvek and poly were synonyms. When I went to amazon a couple months ago and typed in tyvek bags those poly bags came up. Apologies for the confusion. I also do pack and label everything after it's posted. It's the only way our guest room (read: ebay store room) is kept relatively organized lol.

    It's not clothing, but is thrift related. I need some advice. Someone please talk me in (or out) of this. My wife is absolutely no help ("you don't need it", she says without even hearing what it is).

    I have the rare opportunity to purchase this:

    It's a vintage Pioneer rack stereo system. 1 owner, but the child of the owner acquired it, is selling it and knows absolutely nothing about it. Thing is, besides the reel to reel deck (which I have very minimal experience with), I don't know much about the components either. I know the basics such as to see if things power up, the gauges work and light up, etc. No owners manuals. What's there is there. It's local and a cash sale, so if something doesn't work I'm screwed. Hell, I don't even know where I'm going to put it but I've been lusting after the RT-909 reel to reel deck ever since I sold mine 7 years ago and this has everything. They're asking $1,000.

    Components are top of the line, including a RT-909 reel to reel deck, a Spec 1 pre-amp and a Spec 4 amplifier.

    Should I let this go? Hop on it?

    Nat, that thing looks badass, yet confusing to someone who knows nothing about them. I suppose my youth may show its face on this one.

    It sounds like a grail, and I can hear the excitement while I read, because your words are popping off the page. I say INSTAKOP!

    Of course no one needs that, but it would be pretty awesome.

    At worst price out each piece on ebay. Reel to Reel alone seems almost worth that price: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...RENCY=0&_sop=12&_dmd=1&_ipg=200&LH_Complete=1

    From there, start your offer at $400 for the antiquated technology [​IMG]

    Hi Gents,

    I was looking at a Carmina auction on eBay and was wondering if anyone is able to tell me if they have been used much? Because me to me it seems like the wear is very minor, especially with the insoles.

    I was never too into video games, but the DULLARD code is the one I still remember.
