1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    You never know what you're going to find and where. Was pretty shocked to find this at my local thrift today on my way home.

    If I wanted a stranger to park my expensive car, the last place I would check is at the bar.

    Were you with an attractive girl/date? This is an old trick that some guys do to get a girls number or get a beej. I know Dennis Rodman and he used to do something similar, guys would be star struck and he'd have them move his car somewhere that took 10-15 minutes because he was drunk. By the time the guy came back, his girl was 5cm dilated.

    I just found some Vivienne Westwood pants today, as luck would have it! I'll post some pics of them and my haul tomorrow.

    Damn, that's awesome!

    No thrift finds as of late. My only brag is going to the recent VV 50% off sale and coming out alive. I saw... things.

    Listen to Spoo, he knows his stuff. That being said, I think that is hilarious and would be more willing to buy something from a seller with a personality.

    Non-clothing pick up about a week ago:

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Took them to Sunglasses Hut to make sure they were real (I did some research last night and was 99% sure they were) and the worker confirmed their authenticity. They came without a case so I bought one of their extras for $5.00 and am throwing in an old Oakley soft cloth I had lying around. These are going on the 'Bay to help cover moving expenses. I'd have kept them if they were polarized.

    Random stuff from today, random belts on the right Coach/BB.

    First Eton, a little slim, but I'll make it work.

    Aaaand I found the M from LVMH. Not sure what to make of this. Seems really nice quality, but it could be a random licensing thing.
