    Coffee beans and hanging inside out in a bag sounds like it may be your best bet on this one.

    Damn. Some guy grabbed a sweet Eames lounge-ish chair and ottoman just seconds before me. Looked like an Eames-Bertoia hybrid.

    Shouldn't have stopped for that errand first :/

    I could not find a comparable of the same model and I had serious doubts about the authenticity before posting. What I noticed while looking around was that the rivets on LV bags have Louis Vuitton on them. This one did not. Your feedback was helpful it reinforcing the pass. Thanks again.

    Really enjoyed looking at those pics, Spoo. Especially the military stuff.

    thank you man, i had a super fun day.

    my kid also found an original 1980's set of cabbage patch kid accessories for her vintage cabbage patch kid dolls. i mean, you just can't beat the smile on her face. she picked em, and she has a thrift allowance, which she was going to use, but they gave them to her for free. #paysbeingcute

    Owch! Hate that.

    @SpooPoker Wow! Man. That's a great military haul.

    - M65 is 1967. Looks to be in good shape and a decent size.
    - No clue on the poncho but that is early Vietnam issue so should be valuable.
    - The cot probably isn't worth a whole lot but I could be wrong. Cool find though.
    - 1944 jacket is called an Ike Jacket. Not very valuable since they seem to pop up fairly often in great shape. Those patches may be worth something though.
    - The smalls are really cool. Never seen a water bag like that before.
    - That foot locker is probably the best piece. Not sure if the most valuable but the coolest.



    Found a bunch of random stuff today that I won't bore you with, but these are the coolest. Vintage Svea 123 and Optimus 111 backpacking stoves. Paid $3 for both. :slayer:

    Appreciate that! Im 100% not versed in military, but the older the better for me. its all for me, not for sale, so the information is appreciated. my favorite pieces are the water bag and the poncho. and of course, the trunk. i thought of you when i was picking them, lol.

    how about that camp7 though, is that what I'm looking for? i was so out of my comfort zone today haha.

    You did well! I would have bought all that stuff if I were to have stumbled across it.

    Forgot to mention the Camp 7. Right colors, right label and cool styling. Women's though.... :(

    Still, you never know. Work your magic on it! :D

    Very ugly, very cool.

    I left a light gray T&A/CB orphan the other day because of the extensive sweat stains on the white lining. Probably a mistake, but I disn't want to deal with it.

    @SpooPoker super cool haul. Love that trunk. My uncle had one and whenever we'd go visit, I'd ask him to open it up and show me all the cool stuff in it. He also had one of the best collection of arrowheads I've ever seen but the all got donated to a small-town museum when he passed. I'm iff on a tangent.
