    Also saw an old KHS Montana for $10.00. That was my first Mountain Bike almost 20 year ago. Need a lot of love. 50% off tomorrow so I wonder if the frame is worth $5???

    Anybody know anything about this? It's heavy as hell too. I looked this thing up on Singer's website, apparently it's from 1951.

    Finally, FINALLY, managed to reunite an orphan jacket with its pants. The jacket's been hanging around the store for weeks but the pants just mysteriously appeared and I found them tonight.

    This one's for the larger gentleman. Beautiful material; trousers are cuffed with double reverse pleats.

    Anyone know what that pink tag is on the label?

    PS Thanks for the kind word Spoo. You're just being gracious because you're doing the classic drug dealer MO: get 'em hooked and he'll keep coming back for more. :bounce2:

    Hung out with Troika today. He's a really cool guy, very down to earth. He's very knowledgeable. Got to pick his brain for a bit. Picked up some Elie Tahari women's flats to flip. Offered him a cut but he respectfully declined. What a guy. [​IMG]
    Got any size 7, 7.5 D or E in that pile? [​IMG]

    Nice haul, Brian!

    That is so bad ass. I would totally love to own something like this. [​IMG]

    Thanks. I'll give them a call. Their number is on the website, but office closed at the moment. This thing wasn't cheap, but not unreasonably expensive, and I've been looking for a nice sewing machine so I think this fits the bill :nodding:

    Far from an expert, but I did thrift a lot of pipes are few years ago on a gut instinct. There was a Pre-war Sasieni that I sold for ~$250.

    Yeah, I can make out a C in the center of the bottom line, but that's about it.
