Seems like you guys are finding a lot of skateboard parts and completes. I never even see that stuff around. I would kill to find a real plastic 70s Banana board but I would settle for a Penny Cruiser if I could find one

I only have luck finding skate DVDs at thrift stores. In the past couple years I got the Zero box set, Yeah Right!, Stay Gold, a couple thrasher vids, What if?, and some local shop vids.

Really disappointing to find a crisp pair of dickies in the 34 section of the pants rack, and upon further inspection, they're size 38 or 40. Happens every time.

I have a couple Polo jackets that I've thrifted, both dear to me. The last one I got (khaki with a dark green tartan under the collar) is extra special because there was a flipper in the aisle next to me and he looked crushed that he didn't get it. I hate flippers.

$25 on my local craigslist. Oldest thing I have in my stash is my first deck from 2002, this predates that by a good few years. Some scuffs on the paint but the condition good for the age. 58mm wheels with the graphic intact and the bearings still spin.

Pic of the wheels?

I was going to say they are huge, which I like, but it makes sense being 58mm.  The crusty old Spitfires like that were amazing and lasted twice as long as the new bright white ones.



No idea what brand they are, look almost like a kids board. Attached to some Mack trucks.

Did some Googling - I know someone on eBay is selling stickers with this graphic (Da Bomb). Other than that Google isn't giving me anything else.
Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

Moved in with someone a few years ago who had an Mullen enjoi complete from probably like 2001, Tensors with the slider, 50mm Rictas, and bones reds, the graphic is fucked but still a funny thing to have.

I have lots of VHS but the best find was definitely an original release version of Hokus Pokus that I found at a random record store in north PA. Box is slightly worn but the tape quality is fucking perfect.

thatís my sister man. If I go to a thrift store with family I have to race to the menís section before she gets there and grabs it all and marks it way up.

One time I got a creature board with 149 stage 9s and these big soft momentum Baku wheels for $8. Traded the stage 9s.

Hmmmmm maybe a rollerskate brand?

I've scored mad shit from thrift stores and pawn shops if you guys ever get a chance look in the golfing snowboard/surf section sometimes you find hidden gems of true gold.

Found a Welcome deck for $20 with some Indy 149s and Bones wheels along with an Element deck with Silver trucks and spitfire wheels.  I got a pair of Thrasher Nike Blazer collabs in my size at a pawn shop and I don't regret the $200 I spent on them cream colored shits.

I highly recommend thrift stores/pawn shops for shoes now mind you at pawn shops they're going to stiff ya.    WPB FtLaudy to Miami I'm the #1 stunner when searching for anything rad. I don't look at the print I look at the collar where the sizes are and grab it do I regret some of the purchases sure?! but I regret not picking it up if I don't have the chance.

I'm sure Portland pals know about this but the bins they sell you clothes by the pound and if you go by my recommendations you'll find some hidden gems check the collar and whatnot I've gotten Carhartts Dickies Ben Davis CCS pants Volcom jeans and dress slacks Levi's out the wazzoo and tons of punk/crusty shirts with rad prints.

Ive been wearing 90% thrift stuff for a few while. Carhatt and actual made in usa work brands are plentiful in the midwest.  Flannels/jackets/work pants/jeans theres always tons of that shit it any color you could want. Whats harder to find is good t-shirts.

This is true. The t-shirts are always pilled, ripped, stained, graphic peeling off there's always some kinda catch with the t-shirts. Goofy graphics too, like a cartoon grim reaper riding a black cat. They get some wacky stuff to sell around Halloween every year.

I get way too many bootleg post punk shirts off etsy. Where else can I find a sick Wire Shirt or a Teenage Jesus hoodie?

You guys are lucky.  All I've ever got are some random framed "Art", some cool pint glasses, and some hats (I only buy thrift hats if they are brand new/unworn).  My wife gets good stuff, but I think that's b/c women swap out clothes like every season.  The men's stuff is always way worn out and gross. 

I've heard stories from friends in CA (SF or LA) that AM/flow riders will sell a bunch of their box at places like Buffalo Exchange, and you can find brand new skate gear.  I'd love to see that.

I have a couple Polo jackets that I've thrifted, both dear to me. The last one I got (khaki with a dark green tartan under the collar) is extra special because there was a flipper in the aisle next to me and he looked crushed that he didn't get it. I hate flippers.

Flippers are ruining Savers (is this store everywhere or just IL and MO?). I've got half a wardrobe of Polo, North Face and Patagonia gear from this place so i look pretty decent at work. I like to dress nice but I definitely don't like to pay regular prices. Lately I see a lot of women going through the men's section and loading the carts with all the best name brands (in every size, which gives them away). Also weird, seems like they (Savers) hikes up the Nike, adidas and under Armour gear no matter what the condition is.

Weirdest find in there thus far was Shorty's jeans, 5 years ago. Totally shredded. Why weird: 99% positive that they were mine in 1999. Gave them to my crack addicted friend in 2008 but based on vicinity to this Savers and the wear and tear, I think my gear made it to the shop

Found an OG Baker Bootleg t shirt in a pile of generally random, common, nothing special graphic t's. It was however in Japan, so everything in shirt was $60 even if it was just from the Gap.

woah... what did those sk8-his look like

IIRC they were just regular black and white ones with the classic FA logo on the sides . Only stand out was the tongue which had that late 80s/90s.colorful stacked block Letter vans logo. And they had the foam exposed like the blazers do sometimes.

Again this was years ago and I think there was a couple different vans there that day so I might be mixing em up but Iíve googled around and never seen them still.

That good will used to be great for finding skate stuff cause it was right in Hollywood but I think theyíve changed the distribution up or something cause itís been pretty lack luster in recent years .

 Iíve found like 5-6 pairs of blazers some new dead stock some basically current season. And a great pair of malto four star jeans that lasted me years. Maybe Iíll go tomorrow

There is some special weirdness about finding something that used to be yours in a thrift store or in the wild.
a few years ago I donated some shoes I had kicking around, including a pair of (pretty shredded) maroon Rowleys. Ended up seeing some junky wearing them while screaming at his girlfriend at a bus stop a few months later. I got weirdly jealous for a second, like "Yo those are MINE!"
