    if Chicago is chiraq, what's Gary?

    Nothing quite like driving through Gary at midnight on my way home from a thrift run up in the chi.

    Choose the GPS option that skips Gary.

    I hope you weren't taking 41 while the bridges were out. The detours were through some rough neighborhoods.

    Never seen this label before, but it was a hella nice tie in good shape. Too rich for my blood / flipping, but can proxy for someone if they want for cost + S&H.



    Wondering if anyone else does this:

    Haha, luckily avoided that. I did go up when 65 north was closed and had to take farm roads from indy to north of Lafayette. Then there was a crash in the city on my way back and sat for two hours. Left at 630 am on my way up. Got home at 3 am. Rough day haha.

    Fuck. That. Noise.

    Very hobo chic. Discovered a new brand out of kyoto that repurpose vintage Japanese fabric. Will photo dump. Also, gonna go to a flea market, soon!

    I spent the night in Gary at a cheap motel once. Bullet proof glass cage in the lobby. Car window smashed during the night and they stole the knobs off my radio and the change in the cup holder. Nice place.

    I'd probably skip thrifting in Detroit proper and head out to the NW suburbs. I haven't had much luck at the thrifts out there, but they do have NMLC, Off 5th, Nordstrom Rack, etc. Plus the non-outlet versions of those stores at the Somerset Collection.
