Later today my wife and I had a little spat. In an attempt to work out some anger, I loaded my truck with somethings that needed to be taken to the land fill. I get there and it closes at 3:30 and it is 3:50 ! Now I am doubly angry ! I realize am only about 2 miles from a small GW, so I go there for some thrift store therapy. Found a sweet pair of AE 10.5 Brown Sanfords. And it is half off for Mother's Day weekend, so they are only 1.49! I think to myself "Hmm! There is another GW about 5 miles away, maybe there are some good deals down there." So off I go. Score! Two more pairs of AE, 1 Ferragamo, 1 Belvedere Handmade, 3 Cole Haans. and a vintage pair of Masons. And a nice BB blue herringbone jacket. I'm flyin' high now. I can now go 12 miles to home or 11 miles to the next GW and be 23 miles from home. Do I gamble and go 3 for 3 or go home? On a half off weekend? You know what I did!!!! There I got a pair of suede Cole Haan Country, another pair of AE, a pair of John Weitz kidskin, Grensom in my size, and several other pairs that I can't remember. A pair of vintage Wright golf shoes, and a chili colored cashmere blazer with leather buttons the brand of which I have not researched yet. The 23 miles home was very sweet! I'll post pix later. All this for less than $35! About the ties: I found about 20 BB Makers ties this week, 2 RL Chaps, and an Armani, a nice Robert Talbot and also a made in England tie. An unusually good day for me!! And on the way home I stop at the local junk man and he takes everything off my truck!! Sweet!!
