    Harley Davidson leather chaps, XXL. True thrift. I think there was a pricing error. I went to the clearly-new cashier who wouldn't notice, paid, and ran the heck away.

    Oleana The Norwegian Story sweater. If you ever see one of these, buy it - pullover or cardigan, same difference.

    I won't lie - I've bought a pile of books at GW and put the one or two "special price" books on the bottom...knowing they probably won't look at them individually and just ring them all up as adult hardbacks. If they notice, I pay. If they don't, I still pay (regular prices). BUT, they have all been books on quilting and sewing, which I gifted to my mom, so hopefully that atones for my sins.

    This one was regular price at $2.92, ended up selling for a bit more:

    I would personally say that they are bad fakes. (However, this is when @barrelntrigger will correct me by saying that they are a rare collab that are worth a small fortune.) My denim game is sooo weak. lol

    ^^^ they're legit, got curious and looked em up, but i dunno what they are, other than vintage. part of a campaign from the late 70s or early 80s looks like... are they made in europe?

    Have a feeling football may have been affecting some auctions this evening. Gave away a recent $1600 shearling coat for $30. :(

    Am I the only one who had a decent weekend in sales? I was up about 30% from last weekend.
