1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Self nomination - is it in bad taste to post the price? I'm going to send this off to get graded, finding this opened up a whole new world of the thrift game. This coin graded MS70 (perfect) has sold for over $5K. Without a doubt the single best item I've thrifted.

    Sorry, just stumbled across this but, holy shit. And it looks beautiful. I wouldn't sell it unless you really needed the cash, just keep it for a rainy day (if ever).

    I allllllmoooooost feel sorry for Spoo in here. If anyone else posted that, they'd be the runaway winner and this thread would be shut down hard. For him, it's like "oh. Spoo found an entire county's worth of insane shit again. I'll just post these 4 Hermes ties and somehow get more votes than him at the end of the year."

    Was in NYC and found a small men's consignment shop on the Upper East Side where the 1% apparently dump their stuff. Found this pristine Zegna cashmere overcoat for (what I'm assuming was) less than 10% of retail price. Coat is a bit darker than photos depict.
