1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Heh - cue Wes with some estimates of his stock.

    Personally I'd rather have less to unload, than more...meaning, stuff sells and no sad faces for having too much.

    well, I saw THAT coming a mile away.

    Someone asked about pictures. Honestly, other than finding, that's my favorite part. I could do that for hours. Sometimes my eldest helps. Good times....

    JK. I'm right there with you....just delete the 250 womens pieces and add it to the jackets.

    I did 11 listings yesterday and that wore me out. Then I did the math and felt like a bitch because Spoo averages 25 A DAY.

    Trying to work in an Ed Gein joke but nothing seems appropriate, so I'll pass...


    Looks like a Burberry trying to be something else. Odd pattern for them as they have their own thing and don't honk in on other maker's designs / styles / trends. I've seen 1 or 2 sorta similar items from Burberry London, but not the "Burberrys" made in USA (and Burberrys USA is Burberry's with the apostrophe in my sightings). But who knows - their diffusion stuff has been all over the place for 20+ years. I look at every piece I see tho that doesn't mean much. Who is the resident Burberry expert here - anyone?

    Thought I'd post a few pics of the ties I picked up the other day. I found the BB, most-excellent-wife found the Sulka.

    Hey all, cruising the Bay looking for bargains I cam across these. Do they look like shell to anyone else? It's all in the ripples right? I know it's a bad picture.

    I asked the seller for a close up, but here are a couple more. The second picture has me doubting now. Thanks for the help!

    We should take this to the eBay thread, but pictures are the only joy in the creative process. Writing them is just gut wrenching some weeks.


    yuuuuuup!

    Still a difficult call, but a brand might help. Leaning towards "no" right now.

    Hey, how old would a Paul Stuart blazer be if the tag only listed New York, no Chicago or Tokyo? General range?
