    It will need one, I might have a spare, though. I think i have an old RGR preamp with some issues.

    This is a question that historically leads to bad financial decisions. "Why? Do you have one?" :)

    Ha, ha. I think I do. Seems like it is a Basic C1, but it's been awhile since I changed and I can't remember if I still have it. I'll look tomorrow when I get home.

    Sometimes you just have to save something found on the Halloween rack at Goodwill to keep it from being dragged around the sidewalks of some neighborhood at the end of next month. $2.00.

    My latest find - a Swaine Adeney overnight case. It's vintage as they have been Swaine Adeney Brigg for some time. The shoulder strap was missing so I've made one using straps and a brass buckle purchased from eBay

    My wife picked up some replacement pieces of mid-century Stetson Marcrest "Swiss Chalet" dinnerware at an estate sale to back up our well used set at the farm.

    Not exactly a thrift store, but…
    At my temp job,working in a warehouse that specializes in salvaged stock, I managed to come across a box of these reproductions, which they let me purchase:

    Found this at a thrift store, I'm guessing it's late 20's/30's. Cord looks to be original and in good condition. Never seen putty used to hold a shade before IMG_4470.JPG

    IMG_2539.JPG FullSizeRender.jpg FullSizeRender.jpg I've been hunting down a posh briefcase for my stepson and I yesterday I found this Loewe case (black case- lower pictures), at a Bric a Brac Market. The seller told me it had been a very expensive buy originally but only charged me £5.00.
    My find of the previous week (tan case - top picture), had been deemed too old fashioned. I'm amazed how cheap these vintage hand stitched bridle leather cases are compared to new ones. A Swaine one will set you back over £1,000 and Loewe charge similar prices.

    Found in the Santa Fe Salvation Army Thrift Store ... wish it fit me. Nice fade to brown on some of the panels. Guessing 1970s era.

    Wow!! That thing's a monster! Too bad the size isn't right. Is it even close?
