    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.

    I'm sure that @ATLjon is familiar with "red" - she's a real piece of work. You'll come across her sooner or later, @concealed, if you haven't already.

    What are the deets on this "Red?" Does she primarily haunt the Buckhead GW? What is a brief physical description? What behaviors does she exhibit that would make her memorable?

    ^^The PRL tag on that scarf looks off, but seems like an odd piece to fake.

    Felt neither like Vicona, nor cashmere, and no pants, and holes, so left.

    The car is STILL in the shop, but I got to borrow wife's car for most of the day. Didn't turn up much, but it was good to be out.

    Super worn vintage Florshiems that have definitely been resoled a few times and even have a fresh set. Whoever did that is my hero.

    I have no idea. I know the workers there and she's apparently been coming there for years. Doesn't excuse it. Only other competition at that store is her friend, who's extremely nice. To be fair, my girlfriend was there and had to be talked down from sticking her since I couldn't. Sucks for her that I'm moving into the area as of next week and am petty as fuck. I'm sure there'll be more to this story at some point lol.

    Yea buddy! Also hit that store that is closing today. Everything was a buck. I'll get some pics up later today. The estate sale was pretty good. A lot of really nice women's coats but I'm out of my element with that.

    I don't know where she primarily haunts, but I've only seen her at the BH GW. Red-haired female. Pushy as fuck. Never had her grab anything out of my hands, but had her reach over / around / in front of me to grab something that was "in my space / under my nose." She also follows the employees around and grabs whatever they just hung up - to the point of bumping you aside if need be. That was my first encounter with her. The second time, I planted myself firmly, had my cart wedged, and when she tried to shove through I gave her a nice shove back. I hardly shop there any longer (better pickings elsewhere) so no idea if she still uglies up that store or not.

    Thanks to @SpooPoker for the billionaire estate sale recco. Lots of awesome stuff that was out of my wheelhouse (intricately inlaid furniture, McIntosh amps, etc) but clothes were hit or miss. There were ~30 pairs of black Versace Jeans Couture pants that I didn't think were worth picking up.

    Curious to know how they had these priced. I'd assume they knew what they had/researched them.
