    Sad! I am sorry for you. Get ready for marital or relationship disputes, falling back in your job, or school, fleas and lice, losing smell sensitivity, lifetime of excitement, frustration, happiness, frustration, disappointment, victory dance.. start from the beginning and repeat, repeat, repeat.
    Clothing and other knick knacks are just a backdrop.

    Well I have returned from my venture....
    This has rarely happened before, but I only bought one thing after ten stores visited.
    Gasoline....not at thrift prices either.
    Oh well, these things happen.

    I found two pair of casual sneakers just like this in calf, not suede that weren't in my size awhile back...would really love to snag a pair that fit me as I think they look really cool. Nice find.

    Went to a few places this afternoon... Started slow but the last place was a goldmine. I'm gonna open up a Big & Tall Hickey Freeman store later, but here's the shoes I found, both size 8.5, but from different stores

    Bruno Magli brown captoes, good condition

    Does the W here mean wide?

    Johnston & Murphy made in Italy spectators. REALLY nice. I've never seen J&M of this quality.

    In your thrift store 10 minutes ago
    "I don't want the shoes they were in, I just want these."

    "You what?"

    "I took these out of a pair of shoes. I don't want the shoes. You can sell them and get another five bucks out of them from someone else. And you can sell these to me. How much?"

    "Dollar ninety-nine." Looks at me as if she thinks I'm gonna tell her she's nuts.

    "Sold!" Happy.

    Also picked up some HS Trask shoes made of Bison leather. Anyone else have these? Never seen them before out east.

    These are the Challenge Court 3/4. The original version in this color way came out in 1984 and was worn by John McEnroe . They were retroed about ten years ago, so either way you have an old shoe. I would check the inside of the shoe, it will tell you what year they are. I would list them on eBay Nike challenge court tennis shoes McEnroe Agassi .
