    My hands were working faster than my eyes on the rack and were like I think we got something here... eyes thought it looked boring. Hands - Trust me on this, it's prolly...hmm...camelhair? Eyes - Nah, pure cashmere. Mouth: Bingo!

    I'm guilty of breaking the rule of thrifting where you hop in front of the other guy when I get stuck behind a guy trying on every blasted jacket on the rack and carefully critiquing every detail on the jacket. Or slowly examines every shirt on the rack. A couple weeks ago I was in one particular store for a little over an hour. When I got there this one guy was on one end of the shirt rack. When I left he was almost at the end of the rack.

    :slayer:


    Halloween is the one time I like listening to Goodwill's music. I hear Napoleon XIV's "They're Coming to Take Me Away" last year. Couldn't believe it. I also got a kick out of seeing some of the customer's expressions who were actually paying attention to the music.

    Funny as the music varies greatly from store to store. Some play oldies. Some play the most bizzare mix (90's grunge followed by 70's punk followed by 80's pop). With the rest it's crappy top 40 stuff.

    I hope Savers doesn't use their in-store Halloween commercial from last year. It would get quiet and then you'd hear this loud breathing that would gradually get faster and louder and would make me feel like I was having a panic attack.

    Lol this everyday. I like the guys that have a cart behind them, and their arm stretched out across the entire rack to block people.

    Everytime this happens, and when people cut me off, I threaten to ruin their entire thrift run (in my head of course).

    So, i was gonna do a pic dump after the vacay but i had to share some cool stuff. I went to the hankyu men's department store in osaka to check out the new kapital store there and couldn't believe what crazy grail brands are lined up next to each other! Look at the list! You won't see shit like this in the states.

    Edit. Fuck this shit. Posting from my phone is a mother dick. Fuck it, pic dump after vacay.

    Don't ask a question you don't want the answer to.
