    Yeah, I was pretty stoked about them. Just need to be hemmed, and they're all ready for fall.
    Wow! I guess I can't complain about my couple of tubs of random stuff and SCs taking up half of my closet anymore.

    Wes, where do you get a mannequin like that? Very nice set up. I honestly thought you were taking pictures in a cubicle at work based on the background though :p

    It was from a lurker/occasional poster...can't remember who just now. I got it a few months back but only just started using it a few weeks ago. Don't know why I waited so long, much better than my hanging one.

    Professional light table was thrifted for FREE from a buddy's work. They were going to sell it but couldn't figure out how to ship it. The light fixture in it is worth $1000, and the 5000K Fluorescent daylight bulbs are $60 a piece. Luckily they gave me a case of those too.

    I'm assuming you live in a larger city. Wes lives in a very affordable part of the country, hence the ability to dedicate an entire room to such a venture

    Yep, we bought our run down 1800 sqft shack at auction cheap (should have been burned down). Added on a 4 car garage and 1300 sqft (still unfinished) and have been constantly renovating for 7 years. If the kitchen paint color changes one more time I will efing scream.

    capnwes, that's your thrift room?!

    Wow. I have one too but mine consists mostly of plastic bags full of clothes I've forgotten I purchased. Now that you've shamed me with your organization, I have a garment rack I need to assemble.

    If/when I have more space it will look more like this. I cant wait to spread out a bit. Far too cramped right now...not to mention we dont actually have a guest room right now.
