    Congrats on the interesting find as a 3-piece complete. But the tag describes the washing care instructions in Japanese.

    Yes, and in Katakana, it says:
    "Gucci Japan"
    Extra fine Merino Wool. 100%

    Where are my manners? I would like to give a HUGE (belated) public shout out to @330CK for some AWESOME vintage shell cordovan PTBs. If you get a chance to do business with him, jump on the opportunity. [​IMG]

    So, yesterday @capnwes came to visit me and we did the 8 hour thrift-a-thon, partially interrupted by a pitcher of sangria. A great day all around. We had pretty solid attacks on our stores, I don't think a stone was left unturned. Anyway, below is my half of the haul, Wes will post his half, teased below, once he gets back home. A cumulatively sick day.

    I'm looking for a quick eBay tip: in the scenario that you're doing a local pick-up on an item, I've read that it is best to not use paypal, have the person pay in cash and sign a receipt to prove that the item was received. Is there any particular format that this receipt has to be? Does anyone have a pre-formatted receipt they could share with me?

    Thanks
