• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Paid up, but no Kuwa left behind. Right @Thrift Vader ? Looks like it will clean up really nicely. Wish it weren’t missing the front wheel, but “got lucky” (?) the sorters recognized it as a “vintage valuable” bike and marked it up 10-20x the normal price, because most incomplete bikes get tossed in the metal recycling bin. To think of all the grail bikes that get lost that way, sad...

Sweeet!!!!!

That is a cool find! and it would look great cleaned up.
Can you take more pics, from more angles? I want to see the other decals, and features.

Totally a "Carpet Queen" in the making. that could be useful for getting out in the sunshine. and riding for a coffee and lunch. and put back together for the cost of a few flipped items.

aside from ebay, and other places. here is a one stop shop. for getting the old bikes back in shape.

Cool find. i am jelly.

Yeah, that's my area, and I've already approached them about an end-of-sale buyout. Problem is that when these folks see NWT items priced at $500 and up they think they're going to make a killing, and price them at a "steal" of $150. You can tell that from how they're talking about them (and showing images of tags). So the only stuff that will move is the blingy stuff. It's all small sizes too, which is a reduced resale opportunity. That said, I'm giving it a (long) shot.

Last time I offered a bulk buyout, the estate sales company took the position that by donating the items instead of "selling them cheap" they could take a hefty, if not full-price, deduction on each one that was NWT, since they are "certified appraisers". But they wouldn't tell me where they were going. Sheesh. We shall see . . . If these items were all used, it would be a slightly different story, LOL.

The All-Clad are indeed sweet, but will be gone in the first 5 minutes if priced correctly, and I ain't doing a 5am start for pans (I live 2 hours away and would need to get there early enough to be in the first 5 entrants). If any of the other Phx folks attends, please let me know how it goes . . .

So did you pick up this sale on an All-Clad search? :stirpot:

You’ve heard of “shopping your closet”? Well yesterday I unknowingly “thrifted my closet”. I found this at least a couple years ago and since it fit me, I hung it in the back of the hall closet and promptly forgot about I t. So, imagine my surprise when yesterday I went looking for an old coat and came up with this....

I love snooping around on that site. Mostly for CM and guitars. The All-Clad was just a chance for some gentle trolling.:cheers:

Found these Alfred Sargent 'Grasmere' boots for £10.00. Size 7.5 FX UK - so probably not a highly desirable size, but they're in pretty decent condition. Wear on the heel, but the sole itself and the leather looks fine! Got some great E-thrift ties coming in this weekend. Payed up for one of them, but the value of the others should more than make up for it.
