Since it has all arrived I can share my thrift funded backpacking set up

Palante Desert pack- after researching fabrics I wanted something made from ultraweave. Palante seems to be the maker everyone has copied the last few years and there was no wait time it shipped the next day. It’s perfectly fine in size for the trips I plan to use it on but will buy something bigger if I do any international trips.
MSR- Hubba Hubba 2
Enlightened Equipment quilt- love it, made in USA, super light, packs small and lofts right back up
Nemo Switchback- also bought a clearance Klymit Static V pad for $30
MSR PocketRocket 2 cook set, $10 tyvek ground cloth, Katadyn beFree water filter, tiny $18 Rovyvon flashlight (didn’t want a headlamp), Cocoon inflatable pillow, I’ve been lucky to thrift most clothing (merino layers, shorts, a couple pair of Smartwool mid calf thick socks believe it or not) but do plan to have an Enlightened Equipment jacket made

Well since there hasn't been a post in 15 hours or so, I'll throw my hat into the ring with this shoe haul from the other day:

20220808_124849.jpg


About 1 or 2 pairs per stop. Top row is all AE. Bottom L-R is Frye women's, AE and Ferragamo. First pair of good Ferragamos I've seen in a while.

Anyone else experience finding shoes like this?.. dry for weeks then in 1 day I'll get like 5-8 pairs, then nothing for weeks again. When it rains it pours kinda deal.

I have one particular store that I’ve noticed the same guy will donate high end shoes. A lot of them that are worn less than 4 times with most just showing cosmetic wear to the welted sole. They are my size as well.

Massive haul yesterday. Bunch of perfect Zegna suits for ten dollars a piece. Thank God, none fit.
Question: I found some vintage Elite Prelude glasses while thrifting (.99 each), but can find almost nothing online about the brand. Can anyone tell me about it?

Yup have had those days. It's based on processing times and the crew working on it. Sometimes it goes into clusters; sometimes it's spread out.
