    Yeah sure,but they always used springs so wont be able to date it that way.just look at the patina etc aging on the wood that should give you an idea.any way you slice it its quality furniture.

    Beautiful. More pictures may help, but even if they don't, I still want to see more pictures.

    My guess is contemporary, last 40 years or so.

    Been in southern California past week+
    Finally hit up a few areas over the past few days. This is what 3 hours spent in orange county and 8 hours spent in the valley is like. 75% of what I picked up
    I was going to hit up @Jompso but didn't end up making it to my old stomping grounds at UCLA

    Just nabbed these 7 Charvet ties on ebay for $50. Let's hope they're genuine.

    It’s time for our 4th annual Thrift Thread Gift Exchange!

    Many of you have participated in the past and know how it works, but others are new to the scene. Read below for all of the pertinent information!

    If you’d rather not read all of the information, here are the key points:


    • In order to participate, you must have a minimum of 100 posts. These posts can be anywhere on StyleForum, not necessarily in the thrift thread.
    • As we did last year, a $5 donation to StyleForum’s favorite charity (The Ronald McDonald House) is required. Payment will be made to me and I will donate all of it once StyleForum opens their donation drive in December.
    • You will need to confirm to me by 31 October that you’re in this year. I will need your name/address, even if nothing has changed.
    • Please post a photo and thank you of what you receive. It’s fun to see what everyone receives!


    Timeline:

    • Register (PM me) by 31 October 2016
    • Send INTERNATIONAL gifts by 1 December 2016
    • Send DOMESTIC Gifts by 7 December 2016


    What it’s all about:

    The thrift thread gift exchange is just that...a gift exchange among the voluntary members of the thrift thread. You will receive the name/contact information of a fellow member for whom you will buy a gift or gifts. The gifts can be thrifted, discount purchased, or retail, but the recommended maximum spending limit is $25 + shipping.

    We have a timeline for registering for the exchange and when gifts should be sent.

    It’s that simple!

    FAQs

    How do I get involved?

    Send me (HansderHund) a PM with the following information:
    Name
    Address (home or office is fine)
    For those with fewer than 200 posts, a phone number

    How do I know I won’t get screwed?

    You (nor I) don’t. We’re all relative strangers, so it’s really banking on the goodwill of other members. I don’t vet participants other than by post count. Having said that, it’s been overwhelmingly successful up to this point as far as I know. Aside from a couple of members not receiving their gifts (but were later compensated), we’ve done well. That means we’ve had hundreds of strangers exchange gifts via postal service around the world based only on trust.

    Why do I have to pay you $5?

    Once you send me your name and address, I’ll send you a PM telling you to send me $5. I will hold onto these funds until December when StyleForum opens their charity drive that benefits the Ronald McDonald House. Last year, we were able to raise over $275 for StyleForums’s part! The $5 shouldn’t be a huge deal, but it is a mandatory requirement for participation. If I don’t have your donation in before drawing the names, your name will be removed from the list.

    Does the person that I have also have my name?

    No. It’s a drawing of names, so the only time two people will have one another is by chance. This happens occasionally.

    How are the names drawn?

    I divide the list into half and give Capnwes the half that includes my own name and I keep the list that has his. We then draw a name for each person at random.

    What if I don’t like/need my gifts?

    This is important: you are free to do with your gifts what you want. That means you may sell, trade, use, throw away, donate anything that you don’t like or need. No one should have their feelings hurt if they see their gift passed along in a trade or listed on ebay. It’s hard enough buying things for people you know well, let alone strangers, so try not to feel too bad.

    What should I get my member?

    Whatever you think they will like! If you know/have had contact with your member, you have an advantage. However, if you don’t know them, stick to safe items.

    Some easy suggestions are:
    Ties
    Pocket squares
    Books
    Shoe polish/laces
    Braces
    Shoe trees
    Wallets/small leather goods

    You can of course go for anything sartorial of your choosing.

    How much do I have to spend?

    No one will know how much you actually spent, so you’re free to spend as little or much as you want. The recommended maximum is $25 before shipping, but whatever you feel comfortable with spending is most important.

    Will I have to ship internationally?

    Possibly! By signing up for the gift exchange, you’re agreeing to send a gift to someone. We have active members across North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia (possibly other locations, for all I know). International shipping will obviously be a bit more expensive than domestic no matter where you are, but it isn’t required that you ship anything EMS/Priority.

    What happens if I don’t get my gift?

    Anyone that hasn’t received a gift by 1 January 2016 is free to contact me and I will hand over the user name of the person that was supposed to send you a gift. At that point, you’re free to contact them or blast them on the thread. Let’s keep in mind, though, that we’re not talking about thousands of dollars/euros/pounds, but rather €/$/£20-30.

    What if I live in a sartorial wasteland and can’t find anything before December?

    As a last minute gift, you can always have gift cards sent from Amazon, ebay, etc. Additionally, you can buy something online and have it sent directly to your member.

    What if I don’t want/need a gift?

    That’s no problem. Choose your favorite charity that accepts online donations and I’ll direct your person to donate $25.

    Can I make a list of what I want/don’t want?

    I recommend you edit your StyleForum profile to reflect your sizes and preferences. In the past, I have acted as a middleman to facilitate communication. This year, I won’t be able to do so as it’s incredibly time consuming to relay messages between members.

    Who will receive my address/information?

    Your gift exchange partner, Capnwes, and myself.

    It burns when I pee, what should I do?

    A burning sensation during urination can be caused by a bacterial infection, especially gonorrhea. I recommend you see your GP as soon as possible.
