yeah, pros do that a lot.

The Buffalo Exhange on Valencia St. here in San Francisco always has size 13 Nike SB's - i've seen Brian Anderson around the neighborhood a bunch of times. The other week, they had a shitload of size 9 Supras.

sierra fellers sells or used to sell to the buffalo exchange in long beach. mass quantitys of circa and foundation gear in medium. also lots of toy machine stuff at long beach, cos those dudes live there.
a lot of ams/flow guys make extra $ via the buffalo exchange hustle.
theres a store called wasteland on melrose that a lot of pros buy/sell/trade clothes at too.

You're a bigger hippie than wavy gravy.

Seeing as you don't know a thing about me you like to assume a lot.
Right or wrong, I'd take it as a compliment. Wavy Gravy was a pretty kooky dude, but it was a pretty cool kookiness and Wavy was/is fucking rad. I picked up his book "SOMETHING GOOD FOR A CHANGE, Random Notes on Peace Through Living" at a used comics/bookstore and I fucking loved it. He was the guy that announced the "Brown Acid" at Woodstock. I'm not a hippie myself, but I appreciate activists from his generation.

On topic:

This is an old photo of a shirt that I bought when I was 19, but I still wear to this day... dark brown, fits like an American Apparel, soft as fuck, and it has a pretty sick illustration of a guy playing a guitar. It says "Don Francisco, The Live Concert". About five years ago I found out that Don is a Christian folk singer. I was at the park and a dude there my age was like "whoa man, you listen to Don Francisco? I love that dude's music." I told him I bought it because the art was sick, but that I'd look him up, which I never did. I don't want to ruin the shirt if the guy sucks. It's already funny because I'm not Christian, but I know too much as it is.

Over the years, I've picked up 8 or 9 17" crt monitors for $5 each (four I got at once), maybe a dozen keyboards at 50 cents a pop, and an old school SCSI card, cable, and scanner that I'll never use, I just have it. So far, all the monitors that I've ever bought there have worked, once had a scratch on it but it didn't matter... I could see the scratch on the glass but it was for a little file server, so looks didn't mean a lot. Had a good image though.

I also got a shirt that says "Junk in the trunk" with a restroom diagram-ess woman putting stuff in the trunk of a car. There's also an array of insane wildlife or native american pride shirts to be found at my local value villages.

A friend bought me a shirt for my birthday that just said in big bold letters "Eric is 40!" with a huge picture of some kid under it.
I rarely venture into classic slap and the one time I do it I find a guy getting his dick eaten by a dolphin.

found this wizard hat once that looked pretty much like this
they had no idea how it got there so they gave it to me for 25 cents. i also found this slayer shirt from their 1984 tour that i gave to my buddy for his birthday which is now his favorite shirt. kensington market in toronto is pretty much just a neighborhood sized thrift store except there's too many god damn hippies and schizos there and not enough single chain smoking moms like a real thrift store. bummer.
dude vintage slayer shirts go for up to like 500 bucks on the streets around here/ebay/flea markets. i bet your friend loves you

where the hell do you live? people sell vintage slayer shirts on the streets? and for 500 hundred bucks?  jesus christ.

i mostly meant flea markets, but in the "hipper" parts of LA it isnt uncommon for people to try to buy the shirt your wearing. old metal shirts are especially sought after.

as for the avatar/sig, photoshop is a hobby of mine, and a valuable skill, plus it was raining the day i made them, so whatevs

We have swap meets where I live. I've found some cool late 60's and early 70's banana shape boards. Every now and then some early 90's shirts.

I got the suit I was married in, YSL never been worn. A Christian Dior sailing blazer. Bottega Veneta slip ons. I always buy leather belts when I see them. Got my wife two Mui Mui dresses, a YSL summer trench coat and Tory Burch pumps. I work in the rich part of town and these people give away good designer things.

Other than that I buy most of my jeans there and lots of random button down shirts.

scooped up a dozen Kung Fu movies on VHS (The Wu Tang Shaolin joints that were reissues) and some basketball jerseys. Always looking for gear and tape decks.

Just have a local goodwill. I bought an entire CD booklet full of early 2000ís indie music once that came with a booklet signed by The Strokes. Flipped a pair of Gravis as well about two weeks ago and on that same trip I managed to snag a brand new pair of Cons CTS.

Not that into thrift stores.

But garage sales are the shit.

On Saturday I got a brand new shop vac for 5 bucks.

I also got some Van's shoes for 2 bucks a pair and I probably overpaid.

I'm still stoked on the shop vac though

I'm pissed that you thrifted that camera, I've owned at least 5 of them and they're worth around $200 now, but you could probably get even more for it

geez! 200? i found one a few years ago for 15 and i ended up breaking it. bought another one on ebay for maybe 80-90 and then sold it for about 100 when i got out of film photography. i recently flipped the zoom version i found in a thrift store for 3 bucks, sold it for 30.

i still have an olympus XA-2 that I need to get rid of. im thinking that and some of my skate video collection is going to help fund the new guitar i want.

I almost did the exact same thing, but I love my XA2 too much, so I skimped and bought the Squier instead (it's actually one of the best guitars i've played though)

I'm on a hawaiian shirt phase right now, so I've picked up some awesome ones at my Goodwill. I saw a Guiness themed one with the tucan and shit yesterday but it was a size too small.

For sure - they're regularly $250+ in Oz. I love that little Olympus Mju. It works perfectly, is super fun to carry around and takes a beaut photo. I still hear of people picking them up for a song cause they made millions of them.
