    SYMS Corp was an off-price retail clothing store chain, founded by Sy Syms in 1958. Its headquarters was based in Secaucus, New Jersey, where it was incorporated in 1983.[citation needed] SYMS also owned Filene's Basement, which it acquired in June 2009.[citation needed]

    On November 2, 2011, SYMS and Filene's Basement collectively filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. All SYMS and Filene's Basement stores were closed at the end of December 2011.

    Military guys -

    I found this piece of handiwork recently. It appears to mark the military service of Joe Lentini, while he was serving in Korea in '59-60. I don't know what it is beyond that, unless it was just a bit of carving and painting someone did to occupy free time? It is wood, about 14" long, semi-ovoid at the handle end, tapering to a narrow round point and carved in a spiral.

    What is it? What purpose might it have served?

    Doesn't this have 8 folds, not 7? Or do I need to go back to grammar school?

    Edit: Just found the maker on the back of the material label. Roffe Accessories. Looks like Spoo sold one last month.

    Anybody want to see 100% vicuna overcoat? Thing is about 1/2 thick of pure vicuna "the best fabric known to man" I think it's the best interior label ever.

    I passed on an LP Horsey coat that the consignment shop wanted way too much for. After handling it, I don't see what the fuss is over them. It definitely showed use...
