    Christ, now I'm really regretting it. They wanted about €40...so they're real? I have a meeting tomorrow morning but I'll pick them up right afterwards if they're worth it.

    I sent Spoo a PM, so I'll await his response.

    They got me a few times now too. My traffic reports really jump when I'm on their page. Thanks Too!

    Always catches me off guard at first. I always initially think.."Hey what a$$hole is stealing my pics again" then I realize it is actually my listing.

    Went at lunch, but didn't find much.

    First off, question for the hi-fi equipment knowledgeable. Should I have picked this up? I know jack about old stereo equipment, but this was heavy and felt well made

    [​IMG]

    What I did pick up... a couple of belts. First a South Carolina surcingle, size 40, available... Figured someone here might want it

    [​IMG]

    Also a casual dark brown Coach belt, size 38, that I'll probably keep

    Sorry for the WTB, but I'm looking for a beach-appropriate (khaki, linen, whatever) sportcoat in a 38/40 S for a wedding. On Friday. So I'd need it tomorrow or Thursday at the very, very latest. Anyone have anything?

    +1 Prada looks exactly like the couple I own. Definitely real.

    Never seen those with CH label, but those are some mighty nice shoes. CH once made good stuff, and this is proof. Great find.

    Hahaha, yea that's probably right. I get a lot of p.m's about shoes though, so I thought I'd share before putting them on the auction block. :D
