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 have seen a few pieces over the years here in Los Angeles, in a chain of higher end fashion consignment stores. Mostly jackets, being sold in the two to three hundred dollar range. I am not sure if they sold or not for that amount, but hopefully that helps a little with comps.

    Hang the phone up... Did I see that somebody passed on a Henry Poole overcoat?

    I can't find anything Poole, but these guys are passing on them?

    ...shit.

    If this is a bad pass on Poole then that's 2 in the last month or so. This shit needs to stop people.

    That's it. I'm done.

    I'm going to become a road sweeper, what's the point.

    Revisiting the lamp thrifting from last week, GW had a 1k or so new lamp shades at 2 for 1$, then I found an old tennis racquet and frame and then a stop by the home improvement store for a lamp kit. My honeybunny is an avid tennis player so I thought I would make her a tennis lamp for the holidays rather than the monotony of giving fine jewelry every year. I will let you know how it goes....or you can come visit me in my new studio/1 Bdrm apt overlooking the dumpster behind McDonalds

    It was a consignment piece at $150 missing three buttons (that unfortunately did not fit me!). Not enough to justify my time I felt like. The horse hide jacket was beautiful and fit me, but I'm saving money for some adventures. I was biting my lip pretty hard leaving, but all will be found in good time.

    Purple, you will be rewarded with patience!
