Re: What did you buy today , of the non PM range

For whatever reason a local thrift store of mine has come into possession of Tens of thousands of new Neckties. They literally look like they were pulled from shelves and donated, most have store prices still intact. They are not cheapies either, most from Nordstroms and other high end stores. They are selling them 20x for 1 dollar!

I'm not an expert on ties but I'm learning quickly because I have amassed over 2000 so far yikes I'm taking the slow and steady approach and picking up a few hundred a day. I have not had a chance to examine every brand but I have seen tons of very high end ones and have price checked several online. My plan is to sort and begin listing ties on Ebay this weekend! I figure for $.05 I can't go wrong!

I have so many ties I don't know what to do! Its nice to have a steady inventory though. I should start throwing a handful of ties in with any random sale I make. Someone buys a used record player I throw in an Armani tie tongue Worst case I can use them if I run out of packing peanuts!

i don't know.. it came with some sort of sticky soy sauce in the bottom.. it was gross, i cleaned it.
if it was for water. it still confuses me, cos if it was full, and you undid the cork, the water would just RUSH out like crazy.. so i dunno. kinda hoping someone here does. tongue
i've being trying to find something similar online for the last hour to no avail.

Re: What did you buy today , of the non PM range

I had a huge score last weekend, aside from the 650 grams of silver, I bought some old ginger jars from the late 1600's (in poor condition) some artwork, old brass scales and a really interesting old pipe among other things. Can take photos if anyone is interested.

Re: What did you buy today , of the non PM range

A chest freezer, because I am the 'Bucket Chef' - I cook large quantities of stew, curry or today my speciality: roasted vegetables with tuna. These are all meals that freeze well and my repertoire means I can buy whatever is in season/cheap and make a bucket of it. In some cases (curry in particular), it actually tastes better when frozen, defrosted and reheated.

My stews and curries are made using an old and very economical slow-cooking method that allows me to use the cheapest cuts of meat available. You combine all the ingredients in a big stock pot, bring to the boil then remove from the heat and wrap the pot in an old doona/quilt/duvet. It stays hot enough to continue cooking for hours with no need for more heat, cooking for free!


I intend to live forever. So far, so good.

Re: What did you buy today , of the non PM range

I bought this interesting piece. It looks Polish and was possibly like a "gold" prize ticket. It looks to be made from brass. Anyone got any info on it? I'd trade it for silver wink

Re: What did you buy today , of the non PM range

Slipped into Woolies on impulse today, came out with yet another 1Kg of rice, a bag of quick oats, and 3 packets of powdered milk.

Do that sort of thing quite often.
