A place to post thrift store, junk shop,flea market, yard sale, ... finds.  Ebay sort of counts, but I'd prefer to see stuff we've found ourselves.  

This thread can serve as a bragging thread, or a place to swap things you've rescued that are too big or too small.





I'll start it off with my most recent find, a Woolrich 505.

I thought it was going to work out for me to keep this one, but couldn't quite make a 42 work even with layers. This was thrifted so I am not looking for some crazy ebay price on it, or any sort of 'big ticket' item in trade. I just hate to leave cool sh*t behind and had to find it a good home.  This jacket is up for trade to anyone whom it will fit who promises to both wear it and posts lots of pics of it and so on.

If there are no takers after a bit i'll post it on my etsy, but I wanted to give my denimbros first crack at it.

Found this half-placket wool pull-over. Thought it was a Big Mac flannel from far away and then got up on it and was stoked to see it was somewhat older LL Bean.

It occurs to me that being the same shirt-size as you is to my detriment, Robbie!

I am like a 'smedium'... but vintage stuff always fits snug so I have to size up to L on t-shirts at least.
It seems like most outerwear was cut bigger, I am usually a 38-40 in modern stuff... but my pea coat is a 36.  weird, weird.

Picked up this H.W. Carter & Sons wool jacket, unworn work boots, and 1942 US Army map case on Sunday at the flea market. One pair of boots is unmarked, the other is "Gorilla Shoe" brand. jacket is flawless!

1930s leather aviator/motorcycle jacket. I picked this up a few blocks from my house for $10 at an estate sale. It's going to undergo a very conservative restoration starting in February. Period-correct plaid wool lining will be re-done, collar flip, and a few holes secured. No label since the liner is long gone, but it's very similar to a "Topline Sportswear" model by Sears and Roebuck, but not identical.

If it's covered in rust or dust...I dig it!

Found this fairly modern (I am assuming mid 1960's at the very earliest) Buster Brown childrens jacket. It's a 50/50 cotton/poly blend but should look nice on any future children the Mrs. and I might have.
