    A few pics from a few weeks of thrifting, I'm getting very selective about what I pick up; not to mention the amount of competition around here is out of this world. I was fortunate enough to have met up with @hooker4186 a few weeks back, and even met @sashae , hopefully next time we'll know we're speaking to each other lol.

    And the addiction does not stop...one spot today that I hit yesterday but realized I didn't hit women that hard yesterday....this is coming from a person who would only pick it up if it was Chanel and has aboslutely no outlet to unload because I don't and won't list womens...yet the acquisitions continue...1 stop 20 minutes 0 fucks cuz sales were fucking on point the last few days.

    YSL Rive Gauche fairly new condition

    if someone knows how to read Gucci tags and can ballpark date this it would be highly appreciated. The phrase "Tom Ford Era" always has a nice ring to it.

    So the collection of Primo womens shit with no outlet to unload, has been added to... fuck me

    Naw, the drought season is upon us... at least that's what all the managers I've shot teh shit with have been tellin me...shits dry right now ....i think it usually gets kinda bad right around this time, right before the fall stuff hits the racks and all the warmer seasonal stuff gets donated for that warmer attire

    Yup same here, I've spoken to a few managers and workers and it's the same story it's slow and not much stuff available. I usually head out 3-5x a week and several of these days I leave completely empty handed. I've seen this film before though, maybe mid November to March/April it's going to be a dream. So it's important to save and make smart investments where ya can. It's easy to get jaded when ya hop on the forum and see the finds other people are pulling in. @silverwarebandit nearly gave me a couple heart attacks lol. I feel like theres's something that I forgot to post.

    @sashae did you pick up those Alden Indy's in the Consignment store?

    @Jompso you seem to do okay regardless of season ;) If you happen to pick any amazing wimminz stuff in a 4, let me know -- I wish that BC skirt was, that thing is killer.

    A bit late to this, but if you're doing holster work, I'd love to see it. I'm an absolute holster whore.
