    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.

    Long week, New laptop, back on the Windows bandwagon, and man things have really changed since XP...
    Kopped an HP elitebook 8470p with a 2.9ghz i7 for my birthday, and upgraded it to windows 10. We shall see how this all goes.
    New years resolution to clear out much stuff, and not to thrift for a couple months.
    Trying to sync my Galaxy to this computer was a super fun adventure.

    On my birthday went out for some "Elevated Southern Farm to Table Cooking"

    Brioche French Toast with house made Spiced Bourbon Syrup, and a Southern Skillet with perfectly cooked steak hunks, house made gravy to taste, but not swimming in it. Just the way I like it. Damn was this totally worth it.

    Fit pic from today, I really really dont understand how hipsters can deal with these wussy ass collars. I tried to wear a JV Skinny tie from my ebay box, but even that was too thick.

    Bag Day pre-sale (email list invite only, oooooo) from a local consignment shop that clears out their inventory twice a year.

    Imminently flippable, easy to list, love it!

    Burton, Prairie Underground, Spyder, Marker:

    Anyone know anything about the Marker Brand (Orange vest above)? It seems like a high end wannabe, or maybe just really niche. The Prairie Underground is probably my favorite.

    Averaged cost per item: $3.71
    Time invested so far: about 2.5 hours (Time is Money!)

    $6, just over the 1% rule.

    First, those are awesome, second, the size should be cast into the sole just forward of the heel.


    Stopped into NMLC to see if anything would be worth hitting at the sale this weekend. Retail, even NMLC makes my head spin. That's awesome!!

    Had a good day, besides that cherry coat above, some super sweet stuff:

    This was too cool not to pick up. I had some 70's t-shirts with landscape prints like this a long time ago that seemed to have grown legs and walked away, Wish I still had em. Is there a specific name for this style of printing that was so popular back then? Screen print?

    Doesn't mean they'll sell for that much, but still, very cool find.

    the size is first, than the width, 10.5 3E the rest may refer to the color, the model, everything. There's no standard way of marking, some deciphering methods exist online for some manufacturers, but not many.

    Agreed, chances of finding anything on those numbers is slim.

    They're commonly called Beatles boots and are from probably late 60s-mid 70s. Not much value really, but they may do ok. Others will probably know more than me on them.

    I'd refer to them as Chelsea boots, but, yeah, Beatle boots might get some hits.

    Thanks guys, not overly worried about value, but was curious to know its history

    I'd agree, though really a cross between the two. A true chelsea has an elastic panel (although even this has changed in modern times, with zippered boots being called Chelsea as well) while most Beatles boots are zippered. Then again, most Beatles boots have a higher, Cuban heel, while these are a bit shorter heeled.


    Edit: @need, I wouldn't want to see that chick naked ever.
