    GODDAMN there have been some insane things found recently. Didn't have much time this past week to go out, but found a few cool items anyhow.

    PRL tweed for myself. Found this in a hopelessly unorganized Marshalls, that usually loses tags on marked down items and then re-tags them with their original marked price, causing me to wait 6 months to a year for some items to finally be marked down to something reasonable. Well, this time it worked in my favor because they mistakenly marked this down to $40. :slayer:

    Don't normally pick up Mani, but it was trim and the pattern was good. Will probably never wear it.

    This was timely. Was literally just about to buy a Gloverall or similar off eBay, then I found this. I can find nothing about George Key on the interweb. Seems to be good quality: real horn buttons, real leather, made in England. Cool blackwatch lining.

    (probably another worthless piece, but at these prices who can pass?)

    Of course not thrifted, but did pick it up at a price that stands to get me a pretty good profit.

    Nice! I like the Ford, but the PRL is killer!

    I need to start checking Marshall's.

    330 -

    The GV is bananas! Literally.

    What are you doing with the TF and what size is that. 40R and weve got a problem here.

    Finally, the GOOD Yves Saint Laurent shit shows up on the board.

    The gimp's sleeping...

    That yellow GV = Italian Dick Tracy, right in time for Halloween.

    Wes, those Trickers are superb.

    Hit two stores today... two stores yesterday. Nada at all yesterday - left a Vineyard Vines Murray Shirt due to yellow collar - they don't sell high enough to be worth the risk it won't come out (it was marked up). Ah,w ell.

    Today, though, went better:

    The mundane... super-recent BB supima cotton sweater, M, available
    [​IMG]

    About time I found a nice one of these... no remote included though, I'll have to try and call up the company and see if I can get one
    [​IMG]

    BAM! POW! Now if I could find a Power Glove... no, really, probably keeping this, but tempted to sell it because the box apparently makes it worth something (it looks like it's never been used, though the game isn't included)
    [​IMG]

    And the really sickening stuff:
    Tivo Series 3... lifetime. 8.99. Worth something like 300 bucks. Seems to be working thus far, have it going through guided setup now. Probably going to sell this one because I already have Premieres with lifetime, but man, who just donates that?!

    [​IMG]

    Clothes-wise, I saw a sweet Neiman Marcus cashmere sweater with about 20 holes and a few other leftovers that looked like maybe there was a good donation but a flipper had been through. Will have to try to step it up a bit given the time of year!

    That takes me back a bit. I was one of the stupid kids that owned a Power Glove. That contraption made games impossible. As for the pad, I recall a friend having that one....

    I imagine that old skool games and accessories are quite collectable. A friend of mine collects that stuff and flips as well, I remember him telling me he made $5K on a game cart from that early 90's console called the Neo Geo.

    Has anyone got a windbreaker like this to sell in size 36-40. I'm looking for a light color and any brand.
