    ^^ I never discriminate on any given store. Since most of our stores are goodwill there logistics move stuff everywhere wherever there is a need. Just like this morning I skipped #1 as I know everyone congregates there Friday morning and to jump in front of others since I keep track of there routes and habits. Its always a crapshoot no matter the time or day.

    I've seen the prices skyrocket at my local VV
    so much so that I barely pop in any more.
    It seems all blazers start at $26.99 and up
    Oddly, it's really only this store.

    I have about 2 - 3 stores that I go to and that's the extend of my searching

    Pricing is typically set by one guy/gal with no rhyme or reason. There are 2 stores on my route where prices are outrageous, one is a manager who jacks up everything at every store he works at (I've seen him at 3 now) and after he leaves, prices slowly drift back down out of the stratosphere. The other is everyone's worst nightmare, the guy know his shit, and even obscure stuff is ebay priced, I guarantee you he's reading this post right now.

    Anyone seen this label before? It reads ‘the art of shirt making’ in a very hard to read script.

    Found a bunch of cool stuff today. Too dark and too tired for photos tonight, but here is my favorite find of the day. 55863169187__0B01249D-D4DA-4771-BD21-578B845D6F29.JPG

    One of the best AMA's I ever read on reddit was a vacuum repair guy.
    He's so informative he's done 4 of them now. They're a good read.

    (PS Miele > Dyson. not even close)
