    haven't been out at the thrifts lately - trying to get through my backlog. Had 10 mins to kill before an appointment and popped into a VV.

    minty big boy Cheaneys, some Sargent chelseas, and some weird hybrid Gamos.

    Couldn't be a jerk, it's a cheap jacket that looks and fits well. Positive feedback with a helpful note to better the descriptions :) if I see something like this again, I'll buy from the guy again no doubt. :slayer:

    HOLY SHIT that record haul. Suicidal, Husker, Jesus and Mary Chain (not to mention everything else that's gnarly)?! All I usually see are Barbara Streisand records.

    I don't get that privilege, all I find are Cliff Richard or Donny Osmand records.

    I've found some Buddy Holly, Faces, The Stones and Johnny Cash though. That was fun.

    @Nataku , Dang, you had a great day. Those Prince albums must have been a nice surprise. I was kind of keeping my eye out today as well. I wonder if the rest of the country is getting as much coverage as we're getting here...

    Nat, those sx-70s are gold. Free money. I think I found 5 last year and there may be nothing on earth that sells so consistently. Dope haul!

    I never pass up Arcteryx if priced right.


    I've never found one until yesterday when I found two. Found another today at the same place. Was pleasantly surprised to see the completed listings, especially compared to what I paid.
