    I'm pretty sure it's Smart Turnout.

    Synergy. I just found a Spuds Trucker hat. Original 80's SnapBack! It cost me three times what your shirt cost!

    I'm surprised you bought the Avon things. I see them at every estate sale. I was at an estate sale last where the lady had over 1000 Of these Avon Decanters. The chess pieces, cars, presidents, lots of weird ones. If you want others they are available nearly every week for $1-2 full, perfect boxes etc. Out of the 1000's they made only a few dozen are worth anything. When I first got into this I made the mistake of buying a bunch of the cars for $5 a box. Still have them.

    Yeah, got caught up in the moment, but they are cool. Relegated to display/storage only I suppose.

    IIRC they were mostly 10 or 10.5, with one pair a bit larger like 11.5.

    RRL was something different - usually only find shirts and jeans. ToKiTo blew my mind when I saw it!

    Sz 10 you say? What your plans for said sz 10s and would those monk straps and/or suede strands be the 10s you're referring to?

    TNM, that's an awesome story, minus the part about your shit getting stolen. Smoking with the Beastie Boys?!? Amazing. :slayer: :slayer: :slayer: :slayer: :slayer:

    Beside the D'Avenza, I don't know that the rest of the stuff is quite worthy of that!

    So here's a super random question, does anybody have any Art Deco wall sconces lying around? At some point in time the original ones that were in our house were replaced with fuck ugly 90's models. Funny thing is, there is a antique lighting fixture store about a block away that has a bunch of them, but the woman who runs it is asking around $700 for a set. Thought I'd ask here first before blowing a load over there. Thanks in advance!

    A once in a lifetime find, backed up by fodder? [​IMG]


    Some call it Karma, some call it the funk, I call it "The Thrift". And it shows favor to those who are worthy. Without preferences.
