    Half price weekend in Vancouver, BC at Salvation Army and Value Village. Hit 3 Sally's to restock and found multiples of Zara, Banana Republic and Mexx, this Zegna Soft and tons of shoes. Have no idea what I will do with the grey Pierre Cardin's but just couldn't help myself. Vintage ties but nothing worth mentioning. The Tommy and Banana Republic are in the photo.

    The pants have a 3 inch hem, putting the past owner at about 5'6.

    Shoes less than 5 bux per pair. A little bit of something for everyone.

    We had 50% off here this weekend. I think I'm getting more picky, or sensible... I only came out with a nice Canali SC and a Barbour quilted jacket to flip and a white western shirt with pearl button snaps and sheafs of wheat across the top.

    In other news, I haven't had too much time to thrift because I've been engaged in a little renovation project on my laundry room for the last week-and-a-half. Seventeen years in this house and only now am I getting to it - it's the last room in the house to be tackled. I had dreams of making it my ebay man cave (i.e. having a dedicated space to store and photograph inventory). But space was at a premium. I'm posting photos here because some of what I used was "thrifted". The wood cabinet (and a mate I have for another project) are from kijiji - $40. The lower cabinets are from an architectural salvage place - $60. The countertop was in our kitchen before we renovated it a few years ago - $0. The whole project came in for a bit less than $750.

    I just ordered some multi-bin laundry baskets on Amazon last night and I have some finishing and plumbing to do, but that's all minor.

    Didn't get out this weekend. I was itching by the end of the day today and tried to find a gw that was open after 6 but no luck. I spent the weekend rounding up everything and got it listed. Definitely going at lunch tomorrow.

    I think he means this collaboration[​IMG]:

    I've got some Am. Living ties that I like. Unless, of course, you're asking Ian about the actual jacket...

    On the subject of apparitions, I'd like to share something I have encountered that is not really scary, but it's just weird and happens at night. I live the the dc burbs and my area (NoVA) has had it's share of skirmishes in both the civil war and probably the war of independence. I also run and with the shorter days I run in the late afternoon after work when there is usually no light.

    More than once I see this guy wearing a white gown (to the middle thigh) and walking out of the corner of my eye. He has long disheveled hair and is looking straight ahead. This road I run by has those waist high concrete dividers that separate both sides of traffic. I've seen him straddle the divider to overcome it but he will use his lead leg to go over it frontward, while maintaining his vision straight ahead. Kinda the opposite of how you would straddle a horse, if that makes sense. When I look right at him, he is gone. I only see him out of the corner of my eye. Also, he never looks at me he's just walking straight ahead.

    Now, I've thought maybe he was in a military hospital during wartime. I've wanted to research whether white gowns were worn in hospitals during the civil war, for example. Also, I've thought that everyone during civil war time had short hair but I'm not sure. I do know that most of the civil war guys had facial hair. I can't tell if this guy has facial hair. That's it.

    Quote: Damn I passed up a cashmere sweater exactly like this one, except it only had the white tag with red writing. I was 99% sure it was vintage Brooks Brothers but I was worried it wouldn't flip without the tag. It was in my cart and everything.
