1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    I've listed 50+ items in the last few weeks. I have 14 more to do tomorrow and my backlog will be officially nonexistent. First time that's ever happened in my five years of thrifting.

    That feeling when the coworker you taught to thrift starts texting you pics like this...

    ...and he's at the store you drove past last night but decided not to stop at :/

    Without seeing the actual artwork *ahem* the letters and additional punctuation makes me suspect this is maybe Inuit or some other northwestern indigenous name.

    One time I was showing a friend some spots around town and what to look for, when I met up with @theodguy to pass off a Dior tie. Buddy goes into the men's section and immediately finds a Brioni suit. This was before I had ever found a Brioni suit.

    Also, speaking of Brioni, found this knock off today. Not a hand stitch to be found.

    Thanks guys. Here are some more pics. Everything about the painting says "kinda old" to me. No idea on artist or meaning, etc.

    Since @OolongT asked for it, vintage gold-plated Orient multi-year. Running like a champ but needs a crystal.

    lol similar. took a friend by a store to show him how to go through the suit rack quickly. cover the basics and start on either end. he gets a fifth down and asks if this navy blazer is good. this asshole finds a recent brioni blazer the first time he was in a goodwill for clothes.

    Hit 5 or 6 stores with absolutely nothing. The last store had been fruited. Might be my best single stop that didn't have a clock.

    Pretty much all NA for now, some things need some light cleaning.
