    Ties at true thrift prices -- as in, a few quarters per tie. UNHEARD OF around here.

    Tried for pics, but phone's not cooperating.

    Thanks @Woofa I was thinking the same thing!

    Thanks, @Nataku that was what caught my eye. There were some others that sold quite a bit cheaper on ebay I think because they were just rusty and dirty


    I was just asking because I wasn't familiar with TBNY. I have seen it spelled Too Boot, but I guess that was just a mistake.

    Orly? I hope they are! Except that would make them much harder for me to sell them because they are my size!

    Ok. You are right. Not technically vintage. I should have been more specific. It isn't new and probably from the late 90's.

    I was just an estate sale (will post my finds later), but I wondered about a couple things I saw. This group is so knowledgeable, I thought I would see if there is someone who knows about these:

    First is a Commodore 128 (with the separate Floppy Drive). I checked the current listings and also the sold listings. This is NOT a 128D. It also has NO software or games that come with it. BUT, it does have the original Boxes and the power supply, and the cords.

    They want $88. It looks like these go for great money, but most of the ones I see come with a lot of extra stuff. Any thoughts?

    Now, Watch guys. Is this a treasure or a potential black hole?

    This is an Omega Seamaster F300 (very cool looking watch), But it wasn't working and I don't know anything about it.

    It had a weird band on it that a little window with a calendar in it. It had two little wheels to change the calendar and it did not work? Is this an original band? Or something added.

    I know Omega sells high. AND I did check the listings, but I just don't know how much I would have to sink into it to get it where I could make money.

    Price was $248. Sorry for the lousy pic. It did come with the box, too. The crystal is obviously pretty scratched up, and there is the issue with the band.

    It's a Black hole.


    good pass. only kop if running. because skilled hands and rare parts ain't cheap. and a decent beater Omega can be had around $350.

    At the least, you are looking at a new band, and an overhaul. if you can do that under the cost of another one that needs a little help? wear the shit out of it. [​IMG]

    Cool. Thank you. That helps me not to stress out because I passed on it.


    Here are a few things that I didn't pass on:

    Very nice Burberry. I know its just an old Burberry. But it is SO SOFT and those patch pockets.

    An old Lacoste Cardigan like your Dad or Grandpa used to wear!

    This really cool blanket with leather carrying handle! ($5)

    [​IMG]


    Vintage Florsheim wingtips (10D) Not the big heavy Kenmoors. These are a little sleeker and much lighter.

    [​IMG]

    More vintage Florsheims. Both need a little cleaning up and some time with the shoe trees.

    Also 10D

    A guy was just leaving the same estate sale in THIS CAR.

    Its a 2008 (?) Mercedes SL600 Renntech V12 ($150,000 new and still very desirable). 0-60 in 3.5 seconds. 700 HP and 800 lbs Torque!

    [​IMG]

    Also got a spacemaker coffee maker for $4 that sells on ebay for $100! As well as two vintage parker pens.

    Personal favorite of the day. It needs to be taken in along the body but I'm not sure that would work with the shoulders. Eazye says 60s, sweet.

    You don't want to know how soft this is.
