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,

    The thrift gods are mocking me. I was telling someone the other day that I don't pick up Nicky ties any more because they don't sell well for me... Then, at one stop, yesterday, there was 27 of them. Fuck it, threw them in the cart.

    Picked up this interesting fan last night while killing some time. Discontinued model but I really like the looks of it. Retail was around 800-1000, about half that on closeout. No remote but for true thrift price I figured I'd grab it to tinker with. Just replacement bentwood blades are $168+ (I think each) so why not? Has a MCM vibe to it. It's huge, like 60".

    Stock photo to give a better look:

    Not really. The more current the better. Does depend on the item a little though.

    That's the first Anthrax show I went to, I think...around 87/88.

    But nothing will ever top this:

    And then a gang of ca. 1950's - 1960's (based on the DA #'s) US Navy "Cracker Jack" wool dress blues, and cotton dress whites. Most tagged with the name of the deceased estate sale dude. Served on the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt, and by the insignia was a Fireman Apprentice and later Fireman. A few other pieces with names of other folks.
