It’s bonkers but there are a couple thrifts that have closed here in the last few years that I seriously dream about.

There was a Savers in Mpls that was a few blocks from my house that I used to stop almost every day. Only place I’ve ever found Tom Ford and Kiton. I still dream that I drive by and it’s randomly open again and I get super stoked. Then I wake up and realize that’s kind of a sad dream.
Yesterday I drove by where Bloomington Savers used to be. It's all been leveled and now looks like fancy condos/apartments. Such a bummer. Found so much great stuff at that store.

As far as thrifting goes, I can't figure out what's going on. I think 90% of clothing is either being bailed and sent off, sent directly to the bins or being put into storage somewhere. Stores here have had the same old stale merch for weeks now. I donated a few easily identifiable items a few weeks ago as a test to gauge processing time. None of it has hit the floor yet (and none of it was anything that someone would snatch up either).

Thread friends there is nothing like the air conditioning going out, on the 4th of July, when it's sunny and 94 degrees F / 34.4 degrees C to remind me how much I rely on air conditioning to be comfortable! As I find this community to be the single most resourceful group of people I know, any thoughts / tips on a potential self fix? I've already checked to see if it's frozen up (not that i can tell) and cleared the drain line. Full disclosure it went out a month or so a go and it was an easy fix for an A/C service (only like 100 bucks) and it's a relatively new condenser outside that just isn't coming on. Also further full disclosure i've had 2-3 frozen margaritas so not in the best place to do any electrical work
You checked the drain isn't clogged, make sure the float valve reset, could have gotten stuck. For the condenser, I fixed mine a couple times before it went out completely. Each time it was the relay, I opened it up and cleaned the contacts with emery cloth. Open the breaker before opening the condenser.

Still not working but thank you nonetheless!
Mine stopped working once, i was able to figure out on my own it was a blown capacitor, easy fix and cheap part $50 literally takes 5 minutes to take old one out and replace, only problem was in MD at least you needed to be licensed HVAC to buy the damn part so I had to hire HVAC company to do. Charged me $400, he spent longer writing up the bill than doing any actual work.

To be fair I think I have only been to the GW in Westminster a few times. I don't think i've ever found anything that was even remotely worth the trip. Pro tip though Baugher's Farm outside Westminster in the Fall is great for apple picking and cider.
Good tip. We live a few miles east of Musselmans country (Biglerville) so there is no shortage of apples nearby. They just cancelled the annual apple harvest festival, which is a huge bummer in these parts.

Hmm will have to check that area out sometime. We are heading over to Gettysburg on Monday to do some hiking. We had to cancel our big summer trip out west to Yellowstone/Glacier NP so we are doing activities closer to home this summer and trying to keep the kids from becoming too restless.

We are about 6 miles east of Gburg.

we got a box on the wall like this that controls our toilet. The batteries died, and the seat stopped heating.
Hearing the wife walk past me, go in, then yelp off the cold seat gave me quite the chuckle. :lol:

Nothing available at the moment.

I find Alden once every couple of years I feel. My turn came up, unfortunately they're for women.

I always think these vintage Chanel-inspired pieces are neat. Price was right.

This bag was a free gift because I buy a decent amount. It feels real compared to the other vintage pieces I've had, but that front tag is wonky and there's no brass hang tag. I'll probably keep it, but anyone have a definitive answer on it?

Found in one of those mixed jewellery boxes. It's stamped, but I'll need to get it checked out.
