    This was one of those times that you had envisioned finding something very specific and got it in the first rack you check. Now that I think of it, this has never actually happened to me before.

    A few interesting finds today:


    A very nice Sheaffer Foutain Pen (this is one of the Snorkle fillers). It was made between 1955-59 and is my VERY FAVORITE FOUNTAIN PEN NOW! This thing is great! I had to figure out how to fill it and I had a little trouble because it had dried up. But, after filling and emptying a few times and getting ink all over my hands, it works great!

    Plus a wild Coogi sweater (paid 50 cents for it, so I couldn't pass it up)

    These are some odd things. They are men's Travel slippers that have their own zippered carrying pouch. Did men really carry special travel slippers years ago?

    This next one has me a little stumped. I can't figure out if it is a robe or a smoking jacket. The satin shawl collar makes me think Smoking Jacket, but I'm not sure:

    I'm sure this is a dumb question to some of our incredible denim experts. But, here goes anyway.

    I found a 70's Denim Shirt / Jacket that is blanket lined. It was made by a company called Enjoy in Singapore. BIG collar, definite 70's style.

    If the denim feels sort of crispy and almost scratchy, does that mean it is raw denim?

    Recognized this incarnation right away, as I was quite accustomed to drawing the veritable shit out of him back in the day...

    I mean, what's up, it's a sleepy set! Clean, complete and available.

    Are bamboo blazers a thing? Saw something in a creamish or white color that was labeled 45%? (I think) bamboo and 55% wool or cotton. Didn't really glance over it for too long, but I might go back another day and see if it's still there.
