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,

    Hey I need your guys help!

    I have one of my biggest auctions (at that place) to date that will end on Easter Sunday. Do you guys think that I should follow through and have it end on Easter, or push it back another week? Do holidays really make that big of a difference? Thanks in advance #Spoo #Wes #anyotherebaybigtymers!

    Why is thrifting in Chicago always such a hungover enterprise?

    I think it's because your bartenders are really good at their jobs and I don't get tired when I'm in Chicago so I end up staying up way too late.

    Assuming that's just a brag, or would there ever be a question that a good condition Kiton cashmere @ $40, even women's would be a bad kop?

    Most likely corrected grain leather, which can often look and feel like shell. They would never use shell for junk like that.

    I saw Army's of Paris and my first thought was you should have raised the arms up in surrender. That is a beautiful coat, and looks rare as well I couldn't find an Arny's of Paris like it on the bay.

    Ha! Yeah I'm not sure what the model is. I've seen the Veste Forresteire or whatever online and some more standard jackets as well. I'm guessing its a riding/hunting jacket due to the buttoning stance, angled pockets and orange lining. Does anybody else have a clue?

    Thanks, everyone, for the love my haul got. I will probably holed up for a while, selling it all off and bracing myself for the onslaught when my better half gets the credit card bill.

    At least, until I get that itch....

    I picked up these two these vintage Versaces about 2 years ago, when I first started thrifting, for $9.99/ea. (not my photos)

    Would be a hella brag if it were men's. But women's I don't know...I assumed it would be good/decent.
