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,

    @GetBlatzed make sure you use Saxxon as a keyword on that BB SC, that is an amazing fabric and people will pay up for it.

    First day on the job, trying to impress the boss.

    Dachshund included to show scale, it's huge. Maybe 2 feet tall and 3 feet wide. I think to hold a military hat?
    Painted copper or metal, probably 1930s.

    Another estate sale...

    These shooting jackets do OK at resale.

    Finally some decent vinyl. They wanted $4 per record but I found the sweet little old lady running the sale, put on my best smile, grabbed her by the trachea and yelled right in her face "Do I look like I pay full price?!", so they gave me a quantity discount.

    They had a shit-ton more decent records, vinyl mostly in EX+ or better condition, and I probably could have schlepped them across town to the only record shop in my little hamlet and tripled my $, but I wasn't in the mood.

    I have a feeling the contents of his estate will be auctioned off, but the Goodwill is only a 4 minute drive from Paisley Park.... :hide:

    Was getting pretty bummed about the thrift scene back home. Figured it was time for a thrift-cation. Change of scenery would do me good. Had two days.

    Pretty thrilled about these records. Been after the Ancient Grease, Warhorse, Mayblitz and Bangor Flying Circus albums for ages.

    The details on this shirt are fantastic. Cat-eye buttons, runoff stitching, etc. My size too. Definitely a keeper.
