1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    +1. Parting out stuff can be lucrative. I've done it with several pairs of vintage speakers and in the end the parts sold for 3x what the whole speakers would have sold for.

    Thanks dude. I might be down to trade those LP's. I'll keep you posted.

    The private press stuff seems to be from the 90's-00's according to what I've read. It's pretty interesting stuff. Very haunting psych-folk kind of stuff. Someone created a blog all about the artist and has all the records up for free download. You can check it out here -

    Well I meant to return these, but forgot to bring the receipt. Might have to save them until kids get a bit older. Here's a few links, since I'm not competent enough to post images here:

    Any suggestions to make img links work would be appreciated.

    What you may not have known....this was some epic personal shopper style thrifting.

    We had a trade go down last week, R told me he wasn't interested in many tailored items, but was still on the lookout for a patchwork madras.

    Literally the next trip out. Rare enough to find one, but to find it in the exact size....nutz.

    Seriously, absolutely ridiculous delivery here, he even nailed the 3/2 sack PLUS it'll do double duty when christmas season rolls around. This jacket, my navy thin-wale critter cords, a blue OCBD, those football patriots and a navy silk knit? Killer christmas party attire without roasting my chestnuts.

    I took one look at that jacket, and knew it was headed to you.

    Would love THIS to happen....though considering the condition, it's unlikely.

    Is this a great find or nothing special?

    It's a pair of 70's Lee Hickory Stripe O'alls, Not super rare, if they are smaller they will probably sell, but not a grail. About 20-30years too new for grail status Im afraid.
