    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.

    One of the flippers I used to deal with snatched a Loro Piana (actual LP, not just the fabric) cashmere car coat from a new arrival rack. Basically right from under my nose. She then pranced around the store with the label purposely facing out as an 'FU' to anyone who knew what it was.

    What a wench. I hide that shit when I find it - buried under stuff in my cart or hide the label if I'm carrying it.

    When you think about it, that is so stupid on her part. It's much smarter to hide it and have others never know what they missed.

    If I see someone with a Loro Piana coat at a store, i'm probably going to start checking that spot more often. She was just creating more competition for herself. Idiot.

    Hoping you'll get her to pass out, then you can snatch the coat.

    Bravo. Great tactic.

    I regularly include this spot in my runs just to crop dust everyone.

    I have stopped posting my regular hauls because a) i am busy and b) they usually aren't exciting or educational

    today was different because i found some really good stuff in an out of the way thrift store - don't write off thrift stores because they are in weird/poor areas

    I won't give you pictures of it all, but heres the haul folded up, by my count there is about 60 pieces (8-10 are cool COS items that probably wont be GREAT flips, but the rest are all really nice)

    [​IMG]

    Dolce & Gabbana gold loafers, Lucchese cowboy boots and Sergio Rossi black side zips


    [​IMG]

    probably the best three pieces of the haul
