Decided to do the same this weekend, but the LEDs came attached...
I just ordered a set of LEDs myself
I have all LED in my house talk about save some money on electric bill
After discovering my old Strat at my parents house, and then discovering that the electrics were fried (hence my brother abandoning it my parents house), I Started looking at repair options, and it proved hard to justify, given the overall condition of the guitar.
So I went to look at new ones... and fell in love with the much more pricey American models (my high school guitar was Mexican made).
A search online found this year old, sea foam green American special for 1/2 retail... now to learn how to play this thing!
Didn't know where this should sit, it's not quite 'reading' is it? Thought it may be considered along the same lines as the cook books, makes you salivate a bit...
So I went watch shopping this morning to a list of pawn/thrift/second hand shops locally.
The only interesting watch was a vintage Bulova in a pawn shop. I asked to look at it, saw the price tag of $295, and tried to wind the watch.
Wound tight and wouldn't run. When I mentioned that to the guy showing me the watch, he said " it probably needs a new battery".
Walked out watchless and totally disgusted.
In the thrift shop however, I bought this:
End grain cutting board for $3 (1/2 off $5.99)
After a pleasant couple of hours with the sander this:
And after a few flood coats of Mahoneys Walnut Oil
I was hoping for hard rock maple, but it's birch. Still a nice find and a quickie restoration.
for the summer get bombas.com these socks are awesome
Bombas are great but you gotta wait til the summer to order cause they're a bit thick
I bought a set of Briggs and Riley Luggage in olive. Come to think of it, it’s the first actual set I’ve purchased. That’s weird because I travel a fair amount. I guess I’ve always just used a carry on and and odds and ends. Anyway, here is a pic.
After the Luggage store I went and bought a hide of leather and began working on a watch roll.
I have a Briggs and Riley bag, which has traveled to Europe, sailed the Med and around Canada several times in the last 3 years. It is intact, nothing broken despite the luggage handlers best attempts, and other than a few scuffs, looks the same as I bought it. It is going to Oz and NZ in a few weeks, fully packed and I'm pretty confident it will survive nicely. Based on my experience, you may never buy another set of luggage!
Just bought a case of 1000 Stories Bourbon Barrel Aged Zinfandel. I had the opportunity to taste it and directly loved the finish of this wine.
3 pairs of titanium chop sticks
Purchased last weekend, just getting around to posting it now:
A semi-grail from my other hobby, 0 gauge trains:
This is hard to find in great condition. The chrome plating on the ends is usually scratched or damaged. This one is fine.
Paid up for it and it was worth every penny.
Great to hear your experience! Mine are off to India in a couple weeks!

Since getting interested in champagne I have wanted to try this. My first Selosse and from what I have read it will not be my last. Even though this is his “basic” champagne it should surpass or equal most prestige cuveés from other houses. Unfortunately they are quite expensive (you can buy a decent Seiko for the same money) and often sold out. So this will probably be a once or twice a year pleasure.
Well, not today but it was recent.....
I bought up a Seth Thomas Banjo clock from my watchmaker yesterday morning. While it was hung at some time its virtually new and came packed in straw in its original box. The Ryrie-Burks Toronto logo on the box dates it to the 1930s. I always wonder how things like this get bought and then sit around in their original packaging unused for 80+ years!
The clock is still with him getting a full service prior to coming home. I didn't have a camera handy when I made the deal but I lifted this photo of the same model off ebay.
