    As appealing as option C is, I'd go with B. Even with minor imperfections, crazy embroidered RG shirts still bring in good monies.

    +1 on the Oxiclean and hand-wash. Dry cleaning just doesn't have the effect of a good Oxiclean soak. One wash won't hurt.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I probably should have grabbed it since they do exchanges. I'll see if it's still there tomorrow. If not, no biggie.

    And nice lootz, Mainy!

    B for sure I sell stuff with stains on it all the time, it is fine as long as you mention the stains, although one time I forgot and was email abused my a middle aged woman who was very annoyed with the semen stains on her burberry sweater, [​IMG] I probably should have checked more thoroughly for stains before buying and selling it [​IMG]

    Thrift lobbying!

    I think there's too much shoulder padding.

    This was the first time I've heard of it. I think it might be an old southerner term?

    Our local goodwill had a few good things. I got an Ascot Chang shirt. Not sure if they are worth anything. I was looking at fleebay and it doesn't seem like their is much value in trying to resell them. It only cost me $2 because they were having a 50% off sale they do every other wednesday.

    It's been really slow for me lately. I have an upcoming wedding which is burning up the next 5 weekends. Plus I have had a sinus problem which has put a damper on thrifting.
    Did pick up a few things last night.

    A Samick Acoustic Guitar with case for $15 --- just needs a new tuning key, one peg and new strings, all of which I already have in stock. It's low-end, but decent...and couldn't beat the price.

    4 Pairs of NOS Bostonian Iron Age Steel Toe Shoes All size 8 D
    They had about 4 more pairs, but these were the best looking ones.

    And I think I missed posting this find from last weekend. Sweet Vintage Blackwatch 3 Roll 2 40L (unavailable here since I already listed it on the bay and it has bids.....sorry guys, totally thought I had posted it here first [​IMG])

    Those shades! That tie!

    I have never found sunglasses that were worth a damn. Chalk that up as another thing I can never find (not that I'm complaining or anything).

    I'd be very angry if I didn't already have a vintage Anderson-Little one. Wait, mine isn't 3-roll-2. I am angry after all.

    I hit the jackpot a few months ago in this department. Tons of garage/psych/punk/prog. I walked away with 60 or so LP's at $.99 each. Included were records by Spacemen 3, GONG, New York Dolls, Opal, The Growing Concern (which I flipped for $160 and bought a $20 repress of with the proceeds), Mothers of Invention, The Cure, Shadows of Knight, Fever Tree, The Second Coming, the first Nicky Hopkins LP, Dead Moon, The Bonzo Dog Band, Incredible String Band, Ultimate Spinach, Psychadelic Lollipop, Captain Beyond, Captain Beefheart, The Hello People, ,Camel, Badfinger, Spirit, The Seeds, etc etc.
