    Yeah, we are good no problem here. I saw the little dots and could tell they were (older) reproductions, but like I said, I still liked 2/3 and they are going up somewhere around here. Fake, fake, fake little value, etc., got it, still bragging because I didn't pay the $330 dollars it cost for a terrible bright, terribly framed reproduction.

    Thanks for the help the Valium, I will see if I can step up my game in the future.

    That sounds amazing! I've not heard of that one....the other day, on the radio, I did hear about this trend of people buying up old hard drives by the hundreds, then viewing all the old passwords, account information, and naked photos -- though that was more of a cautionary tale. Still, there's a Goodwill computer store around here, and the employees tell me that booting up an old computer can be like peering into someone's 1997 brain.

    :D

    Sick part is all the awesome stuff I missed. Saw one guy that beat me to a RLPL suit, and I didn't get to the shirts first either. Oh what could have been!

    So, as I mentioned previously, I was having a pretty awesome day. That is, until a dead battery put a screeching halt to my treasure hunting. Luckily, a generous bystander helped me jump start the car. I didn't want to take any chances getting stranded, so I headed home. I'm quite sure, at the rate I was going, I could have found several more awesome items in the newly found stores which I had not yet explored. I'll save the fun of diagnosing the car troubles until tomorrow, when it's not dark and stormy out.

    Regardless, I did find some awesome things. Again, big ups and mad props to the person that posted about thrift buddy. Without it, I'd have less than half of what I found. :fistbump: Gonna put the yard sale one to work this weekend. :slayer:

    Enough blabbering, on to the finds...

    20" Apple Cinema Display

    First time finds: Borrelli pants & Corneliani for PRL pants, both my size! WOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    Belvest for Herbie Frogg

    Cool Canali SC:

    No idea who made this, but I love the pattern and it's quite well-made. Fully-canvassed,

    A couple Loro Piana cloth Brooks Brothers navy SCs
    [​IMG]

    MacDouglas (Mac Douglas?) French made leather moto jacket. Leather feels quite nice - know nothing of the maker. Guess it's time I get that café racer project I've been wanting.

    I would normally prefer walking barefoot over a mixture of broken glass, rusty nails, and hot coals to wearing any Diesel sneakers, but these were BNWOT and actually kind of cool looking.

    And... A couple classic movies not yet in my collection

    330CK how do you know its your battery and not your alternator simply not charging the battery?
    here is what you do,start your car and then disconnect the battery while its running,if you car still runs then your alternator is fine,if it stalls its your alternator and not your battery.
    a car doesnt need a battery to run,just to start it
