    This has got to be a Thread First. What a Wild thing to find. Were you in a Catholic Thrift Store? You would think whoever had that would donate it to a Catholic store or Church. I see the pamphlet on the Last Rights. But, I suspect that is more geared to Communion. My father brings communion to people at the hospital (because he is retired and old and trying to get into heaven. Just kidding. I think that was his Joke). I wonder if he has something like this.

    Went looking for any more new arrivals from Nataku's haul but came out empty handed. Stopped by a consignment shop while I was out and spotted a tiny pair of Levis

    Which reminds me...

    Did anyone else see this news story and think, "He should sell that on Ebay"?

    I saw these today and did not buy them, but I took lots of pictures as I try to learn what Shell Cordovan looks like. These are Florsheims, made in India.

    Thank you.If they are not, what denotes that? The one stamp inside says something about 'flexible <illegible> muscle'?

    The little creases. Shell does not crease, not even a little.

    Thank you. I haven't seen anything made of shell yet, then. I suspect they're surpassingly rare in my part of the country, for the same reason I never see some of the brands I see bragged on here. I mean *never*. But I probably see brands regularly that some of you never only rarely. Just not carried in local stores.
