    This thread has strayed and evolved, but it's not all about the $ now, it wasn't all about the clothes then.


    Nothing new to post, because I have sworn off thrift shopping for a while, and been working on a pumpkin instead of my backlog:

    Those are lemons for arms, that thing that looks vaguely like a pigeon is his tongue.

    First time I've seen someone brag about what they donated to the thrift rather than what they bought at the thrift.

    @SpooPoker the only thing I can say for sure right now is that I WANT it.

    My gut feeling is early 1900s--WWI or II. Quick research shows it's most likely naval: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ensign_of_the_United_States as they used 13 star flags into the 1900s. From the pictures it looks mostly machine sewn--is there any hand stitching? If I were forced to guess from what I know right now, I'd say it hung in a naval office, was used in a ceremony, or was made as a gift (or in memory). No matter what, you have something seriously valuable there. The name that keeps popping up is Jeff Bridgman, an antique flag dealer in Pennsylvania. He buys flags, so maybe shoot him some detailed photos and see what he says. I'll keep researching because it seriously interests me.

    Even better... My last stop today was like a "What does Fueco really want to find today in his size" romp. Patagonia Retro X, Patagonia R3, Ibex pullover, and a Mountain Hardwear Windstopper tech shirt. All that was missing was some Voormi goodness, but I'm working on that.
