    My GF and I work together as receptionists(from home) but she HATES thrifting. I wish she would help. 2 extra eyes never hurt anyone.

    My wife is forbidden from shopping with me until she can cure her eBay re-seller Tourette's Syndrome. There is nothing more disturbing than being in a consignment store trying to be inconspicuous about checking prices on my phone, only to have your wife ask you from across the store about how much something would sell for on eBay.

    @barrelntrigger

    actually that story is part of my last levi's haul, which has been a steady, slow-motion victory over the past coupla weeks...

    (i posted some of it t'other day)

    and which i suspect will continue into this week, maybe beyond

    EDIT: unless, of course, anybody really wants to see pics of levi's samples (which are actually interesting if you like prototype denim, dyes, and fadez!)

    No thrifting for me today, but I did manage to finally upgrade my phone to one from this decade. Picked up a good condition S5 today off the CL. Going tomorrow to get it set up(because I dont have a micro sim, and didnt even know that they changed) Talk about a huge upgrade this new technology is fancy; but I miss my keyboard.

    No offense taken noble and as said above, I will usually post if something unusual I had not ever seen before but I know I have seen from time to times in the threads.

    The Hilo Hattie is available if anyone is interested for cost plus shipping or preferably a trade. SPOO is not interested in selling these. FYI it is a Christmas one with Santa. Send me a pm if interested.

    Took me forever to upgrade from my old skool razr to a smart phone a few years ago...pays for itself in being able to search in store etc, and no one laughs at me any more (cept it's an S3 Active so already behind the times...again.) The new Verizon pricing has me thinking upgrade and switching from NSA bed buddy AT&T.
