    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.

    Went to some new stores in what I've been told is the "ghetto" of Columbus. While some stores were a little dirty, nothing was that bad. The dirtiest store though, did something weird with the way they hung their ties.

    [​IMG]

    All the ties are tagged through one of the folds on the back of the ties. Speaking of folds, the first tie I grabbed had a lot of them.

    Cherry popped with that one. Then I found my third ever one of these on the same bizarre rack.

    A few more ties.

    Glad I didn't bid you up, had the numbers entered, then cancelled. Blurry pics made me nervous.
    So, went physical thrift shopping instead, ever walk into a place and it just LOOKS flipped? Tie rack a mess, empty hangers, general rack mess.
    Well, they missed a few. Highlights below.

    One thing for sure, when you think you found gold in a thoroughly flipped place, inspect hard. They were left behind for a reason.
    In this case, maybe tossed the place at lunch, this put out after? Who knows.

    No, it's not.


    But it is mine. And I've told you whippersnappers before...

    (But nice find.)


    Yeah, I can definitely tell when I'm thrifting in someone's wake. Well, in my area, that's always. But I can tell when it's been recent.
