I hear ya. My wife is extremely careful, but doesn't begrudge me going out when I can. Plus, she enjoys the extra funds in the account, when it's time to pay the bills.i told my wife i'd stop thrifting until things are more under control. but, DAMN i still really wanna go! HOWEVER, her mother volunteers at a thrift store in her hometown. one of their other volunteers tested positive. doesn't directly impact my rounds, but maybe it's an omen?
i've been conditioning a lot of shoes and jackets to keep my temptations at bay. honestly, i've mostly been finding crappola since the thrifts reopened in july anyway.
I have also found myself polishing a lot of shoes lately, to stay occupied. Here's a few photos of my Allen Edmonds "Sullivan Street" boots, that I did a dye-job on, to mimic Edward Green's Galways...
I also sell quite a number of Dansko shoes as fodder. They sell well, and fast, and most are made of leather, which gives me an excuse to break out the polishing kit...
