    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.

    Good day turned bad when I lost my prescription eyeglasses at the Goodwill...didn't realize it until I got into the car. Tried for an hour to find them bak in the store with no luck. One of the workers said they found in the dressing room I was in and then placed them in the glasses bin. When we looked for them, they were gone. Who the hell buys someone else's PRESCRIPTION sunglasses!!! The frames are a no name Chinese brand! GRRR. Good thing I'm getting new glasses soon anyway!

    Anyway, found some decent stuff. Nothing awesome but okay stuff. Will post pics tomorrow!

    It'd pretty ridic. I had them make an announcement but no one came forward. The cashier said they didn't sell any glasses in the time period I lost them, so someone probably stole them from the store. How odd. I'm going to call tomorrow to see if someone turned them in. Doubtful. I'm getting some new Persols anyway, buy its ridic that someone would want my glasses

    I had thought my first post was the one with the old pincord BB suit where theWGP called me out, but I forgot about this one about a week earlier.

    Pretty awesome that my first post involved Shell Cordovan. Too bad I hadn't figure out how to post pics at that point.[​IMG]

    And it shows the evolution of my store, which used to be mainly collectibles, into what it is today.

    The SEAM Store.
    Something
    Everything
    And
    More

    Funny how that worked out for me. Was totally coincidental.

    Haha, my first post involved bike shorts, Patagonia fleece and some meager crap I thought was good. The first response was @tben asking if I'd found a any Christian Dior ties. My response was basically, whatever, I sold one of those ties for $34. Good times, eh?

    I shall, I didnt try them on in the shop, just grabbed them. Tried them on a few minutes ago, and other than being about 4" too long, I love the higher rise and the way they sit. Now to learn all about how to take care of them correctly, since these appear almost new.

    Thanks for the info.

    Here's my first post in the thrift thread. I think it was my 4th or 5th post on SF.
