Thrift fit… I thrifted this Ibex sweater recently, and it fits perfectly. I caught seven trout (one rainbow and six brown) today, after going for a 5.3 mile trail run.

Two years ago I was completely done with thrifting. Going to ten stores to find a pair of AE tassel loafers had zero appeal to me. I was pissed off at thrift pricing and jealous of the LA guys who found Tom Ford suits on a Wednesday 10 minutes before closing. Since Covid started the work-from-home trend I've found that what I really like is putting sweat equity into things (furniture, mostly) and taking pride in the process of restoring pieces. And learning how to do this properly. The teak table below is the second I've done in 3 weeks. It was $20 and in dumpster shape and needed everything done to it. The sink is from 1937 and is in the process of curing so I can sand the new epoxy.

I think this is a Majestic lamp. The accents are solid teak, but I need to remove the old finish and repair them.

This is awesome! Do you have photos of your processes / the pieces’ progress?

I'm thinking of starting a YouTube channel like that Dashner Design & Restoration guy to show the steps. I think I have the voice for it. The problem is the goddamn winter is about to hit southern Ontario and that means a 6-month pause.

Can anyone please help me ID these? Trying to sell them locally here in Sweden, but I am having trouble pricing them accordingly. I believe these are LVC 501XX 1955 but they are made in USA and not in some bullshit country like Turkey like most other I see online.

Many thanks

Z

Those are 1947’s - LVC does the first two digits for year, the next three for cut - 47501. These are rigids
