yeahhh! I went to an upity thrift. It was expensive like. Not a bargin at all... tongueface
Nov 09, 2008 @ 00:19
Are you in Georgia?

Yeah though, Plato's Closet is more expensive than like goodwill but they have better clothes, the reason it is more expensive is that it is a thrift store geared towards young people, and that the employees are young and actully know the value of the things. But its still a pretty good store.


Nawh I'm not in ATL , But do you find Jays at Platos?
I saw some fake bathing apes... tongueface
If I see Jays or Nikes I'm grabbing them...

i buy basically all my clothes at thrift stores and garage sales, a lot of times i don't find anything but when you find something good, it makes it well worth the search
Nov 09, 2008 @ 12:49
I donate stuff 1 or 2 times a year that I know I'm not gonna wear again, so I know some people here have found some ok stuff

edit* cheep that denim jacket looks doap

Those cordovans look damn near unused for something from the 1960's. nice find. I love cordovan leather 'cause it ages in such a unique way compared to other leathers; I almost love weathered/used cordovan more than a well-kept fresh pair. That shit was meant to be worn in.


There was a news clip about some woman here who used to live in california who bought a painting at a thrift store back in cali for 5 bucks and it turned out to be a jackson pollock. There's been a lot of debate about it being a real pollock and it took her 15 years to get it authenticated because it was never signed. She's auctioning it off for 50 million I think. That's unbelievable, I can't even fathom 5 million, let alone 50 million.

I went thriftin' today and I found a Ralph Lauren button up for 5 dollars. Its a tad long but I can work around it.

oh, they are well worn... the sole has been replaced at least once from what i can tell... thats the beauty of cordovan.

Picked up a barely used Ralph Lauren varsity jacket for $20 at Salvation Army today.
Shit is baggy as hell, but it's super warm, and looks pretty smooth for only $20.

came up on 5 vintage ysl stadium jackets from the 80's with the double collar. From thrift town in sac.

I found this shirt at a Saks for $37 on the sale rack that was originally retailed at $475. Didn't find it at a thrift store, but just goes to show you can find great deals anywhere!
