    There's a few of us... I've posted most actively about it I think, but ick578 is looking for an Isaia hanger. I might give him mine if we ever manage to meet up, since it's for a smaller dude, but finding a large one for the Isaia suit I WILL have someday is going to be difficult ^^;

    I can use the fat-shouldered Oxxford hangers, but am looking to divest myself of the thin-shouldered ones as well, in fact. Sorry!

    This is unlikely to assuage Frenchy Valium's jealousy suspicions of how dm7 comes about these bargains on the reg.....

    If anyone is interested in trying this out, I read in a book that you can use a coat of clear nail polish on shell buttons to give them a nice shine. I was thinking about trying that on the ones that I "clouded over" with the oxy method. I haven't gotten around to it, but I thought someone else may be interested.

    Or just paying off some kid at the thrift to hold stuff for him. The $2,000 NWT had to raise some eyebrows here.

    It happens. Some store will just dump a bunch of inventory and write it off as a loss.

    Denim jackets are back in (and by a guy whose name reminds me of J-Lo's husband)? I'm sitting on a GOLD MINE from the 90's. (Srsly, I'm happy for DM7, but this is just a fashion trend I can't understand)

    Usually trees around here are $2.90. I've found the best place to look for them is in the little plastic bags that some stores have hanging up, the one's that have barbie dolls and other random shit in them.
