wait WHAT. 1200 or 1200 mk2? if the latter, FACE ----> MELTED
^^ Just a regular SL 1200. Would have loved if it were a Mk2!
Yeah, the 1200 was a great find but it's been long since sold. These days I'm running a thrift find Dual 701 (still has original box/packaging) for the mancave system and a NAD (rebadged Rega R2) for the living room system. The SL 1200 was found back in the mid 90's when everyone was chucking their vinyl and turntables. I got the bulk of my collection (stone mint early pressing Beatles & Stones LPs, tons of great psychedelic and progressive rock, 50's rock and roll on LP and 78s, etc) during this time. Nobody else was out there looking for it and people had a hard time giving it away. These days any well-known classic rock LP in nice shape won't last 20 minutes on the thrift store shelves.
I'm always looking for any obscure 60's-70's rock/psychedelic/progressive stuff.
Did you miss this? Thrifted from my alley the other night. Not old, but my wife and I have wanted one of these for awhile. Bonus points because it now holds my bow-ties, pocket squares and braces.
Yes sir, I post pics of my LP finds almost as much as my clothing finds.
I found a Mart Stam Cantilever chair someone was throwing away. I had to replace a bolt, and the leather on the armrests is a bit worn, but for he price I can't complain.
Wow, they also have Krampus and Baphomet buttons among others. Who knew?
Some of my biggest scores were dumpster treasures, although I haven't done it in quite some time.
Dumpster finds from days past:
1. 1960's huge abstract oil painting, by Robert Watts (a cornerstone of an abstract art movement Fluxus and "Events") Sold for $500...probably should have asked for more, but hey it was trash.
Link to Robert Watts....Robert Watts (artist)
2. Two full crates of Promo Albums, most first pressings and still sealed. All from Late 60's to early 70's. Psych rock groups such as, Can, Ten Years After, Spring, Wishbone Ash, and many early bands of artists who were in well known bands later. Sold them individually for at least $3000 total.
Sealed Can records from a dumpster? I didn't start collecting till the very very late 90s and the early 2000s were still reasonable for records from thrift stores but these days it seems totally dead.
I'll just keep hoarding my CD collection in the basement, maybe there will be a CD renaissance. How much for these original BMG music club pressings?
This pic had me laughing my ass off. And that fine, obviously very upstanding and model of modesty didn't hurt either.
Speaking of all that: What ever happened to Noobizor? You out there, brah?
Thrift Fit for my 100th post!
Cords by Brooks Brothers
Sweater by Budweiser
I am going to find one occasion to wear this and then sell it. It has two stains that I will have to use Oxiclean on.
Apparently these sell pretty well on eBay, but I can't imagine where I would see anyone wearing this.
+1, He hasn't posted for over a month. Hope he's allright
Yeah, I saw those. Only in 1 inch, damnit.
I could have done plain buttons of some sport on the sleeve, but they don't seem to entertain the possibility that people might be interested in buttons that aren't sized for a sweater set.
What in god's name...
This right here is my dream. You've lived it! Wow....
So I passed up a bunch of clean, old cameras. Ebay says I probably did well to leave them, but for $25, I might go back.
Included a bag and other goodies:
and a Practika of some sort
I don't know anything about cameras, so yeah.
But I did get these for $2. Not a big brag, of course, but I liked the duck one, and I thought that perhaps the Y2K tie would strike someone's fancy.
That duck tie is suuuweeet, I passed on a BB duck paisley awhile ago, that I'm still pissed about.
