    Had a 12 hour thrift loop last year that yielded 1 pair of cufflinks and a pair of shoe trees.

    Hope that helps.

    I even stopped by the Neiman Marcus Last Call since I had a full wallet from not buying much of anything, and I went to the clearance section to pick up some of the Stefano Ricci ties I left last week. As I get there I see the rack lacking, and the lady by there said "Someone stopped by from Houston yesterday and bought a lot of them, I think he said he was an eBayer"

    If that was one of you, I hate you.

    Alright. Gonna start with regular thrift haul first. Craigslist stuff is at the end.

    Ties, all available except the J. Press.

    I've only found one store around here that put out any outerwear yet. There was one rack, and it was almost entirely for fall weather. Except this one. This has the works. Cashmere blend lined. Four different hand warming pockets. Waterproof shell (I think). It's also made by Canali, which is nice.

    Lol because on a good week/month, you can clean up fat and flip into gold so you don't have to get a big boy job to make rent.

    Speaking of, I got a new job today. No one would hire me as a classroom teacher, but some learning center thought I was at least good enough to be an ACT/SAT tutor. They actually made me take the ACT which felt pretty lame since I just got out of college a few months ago. Oh well. It's more money than cutting grass at the golf course.

    It's probably my favorite of all the ties I've ever found. I've never actually hunted, but I love hunting themed ties because my great grandpa owned a hunting farm his whole life in Wisconsin and I'd get to hang out up there twice a year as a kid. Fades aren't showing a whole lot yet. I've tried to fight through the heat, but the humidity just kills me.

    Haha, come on up. You'll find plenty of them up here. My wife is from SoCal but has lived here for 7 years and she's starting to pick up the Minne-soh-tah accent now. :laugh:

    Stopped in at a semi-local (within 150 mile radius) spot the other day. It was marked on Google maps as a thrift store. When I walked inside, I realized it was a buy/sell/trade/consign shop that will sell your stuff on eBay. No clothing anywhere, just collectibles. Found a case full of model cars and picked out a Ferrari for you know who. While the owner was getting the car out of the case I told him about the guy who thrifted a Ferrari and that said guy and I were both eBay sellers too. Told he we mainly dealt with clothing, menswear.

    Guy: "Menswear huh? Do you have some time? I have something you might like to see."

    Capn: "Sure, I've got all day"

    Guy: "Wanna ride with me to my house?"

    Capn: *raises eyebrows mentally* "Sure"

    We rode together to his house, he told me how he goes to estate sales and does whole buyouts. We arrived at his house and I followed him into his basement, with my @sshole clinched just in case. He leads me through stacks of hoarded collectables. In the corner was a stack of shoe boxes, old shoe boxes.


    NOS Shoes from the 60's

    Got 4 pairs of these....

    Got 2 pairs of these.....

    4 other pairs were women's that I didn't really want, but it was an all or nothing deal. Sending them off to my friend in VA.

    I wish I had a twitter following or something for my city because right under our noses we have Coppley producing some sick goods! I found 5 pairs of trousers today and left with one, if I had more money I'd have a no Coppley left behind policy. Oh, also, I photographed an insanely beautiful young woman at work today, it was THE EASIEST photo I've ever done and she didn't even want to get photographed but still took a gorgeous photo!
