1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Eh not really. They just look better. They don't have to be trendy.Try red wing boots as well. I think you'd like something by then.

    Thank you for organizing the Thriftmas Exchange and all you do. I'm glad they made it to you ok, and you like them. I wish my pictures looked half as good as yours.

    Thrifting was nice today. I think I saw maybe 5 people in each store total.

    Anyways, I actually found some stuff.

    Boring sweaters for me.

    This made in the USA Alpine Crafts Company sweater that I have no idea about (Nataku?)

    And finally something actually good.

    Happy holidays everyone!!

    We're headed up to Boston for a couple days, and wouldn't mind hitting a couple thrift stores while we're there! Hoping we had some people from Boston who wouldn't mind pointing us in the right direction? Happy to return the favor whenever you're in NY!

    hey everybody. I've been lurking here for a bit, and figured it'd be a good time to introduce myself. I'm Alex. I'm 30 years old. I'm a capricorn. I run an ebay store called Get Blatzed Vintage. My first love is vintage T-shirts, and vintage wool shirts, but I'll sell pretty much anything i can make a profit on haha. I've been slowly expanding my knowledge of designer stuff, largely thanks to this thread haha. anyway, enough about me... Here's my modest haul from the few stores i hit today. everything is available. my apologies for the lack of a spoiler.

    I'm sure they're supposed to look like Versace, but...no. I'm pretty sure Versace silk shirts don't have the shimmery sequinned look to them. No stamps on the buttons? Nothing? Hard to flip, then. You don't want to keyword spam to get views, but without 'versace', not sure how you'd get anybody to look at them. :(

    are you kidding me? i went to like 8 places today and got sneezed on by half a dozen people at each stop. i finally found a couple things for mrs ripper and people were dropping like $300+ at the register and the line was 18 people deep. i hallucinated son of flying pig and finally had to give up and leave empty-handed. thrifting was not nice today. cie la vie.
