Re: “Pssst...Affordable Art (Show):

This is really amazing work, but that second piece (with the framework of tiny sticks) makes me nervous. What if somebody — some stumblebum like ME, I mean — accidentally nudged it and sent it all crashing down? That would be awkward. I think I'll just admire it from a distance.

Re: “Chow for Cheap: Pho Hoa Binh

HJ: as Susan Ellis showed in her review of La Baguette's ten buck lunch, styrofoam, paper and plastic ain't cheap. Maybe that accounts for the buck up-charge for takeout.

Re: “Chow for Cheap: Pho Hoa Binh

Sad news, fellow buffet lovers:
Today I went by to grab some cheap food, only to find out that the prices have been raised! $5.69 for lunch eat-in, and (this is the travesty) $6.99 for lunch take-out. I'm not sure why the price difference - it seems like you'd eat less if you took it out - but in any case, we've lost some ground here.

Don't pretend you didn't fill up on bottomless chips and salsa. Bonus!

Re: “Pssst...Vintage Sales:

After I saw your article on the MIFA Thrift store a few weeks back, I put it on my list of places to check out when I had the chance. I finally made it down there this week and was disappointed to discover that the store will be closing at the end of October. Do you have a follow-up story planned?

As a general rule, people are awful.

Re: “Chow for Cheap: Pho Hoa Binh

I agree with above poster. It sucks to go there and people are vultures about the food.
It seems there will be a fist fight over the egg rolls. One woman sitting with about 6 friends emptied out the egg rolls onto a dish, meaning to claim them for the table I suppose. It was gross! Too bad, because the food is really good. Why do people have to act like animals over a good deal? Beyond that, the owner is awesome and the food is great!

Pho Hoa Binh's dishes are second to none.

Re: “Chow for Cheap: Pho Hoa Binh

And the lemongrass tofu is almost as good as Saigon Le's , although different. Love that place and never get to eat there enough.

Re: “Chow for Cheap: Pho Hoa Binh

Man I love their food. The only problem I have with the place are the patrons who stuff their pockets with egg rolls (you know who you are).

Re: “Thrift!

Thrifting is addictive - I've been doing it since grad school and work/socialize with people who admire my wardrobe and have non idea where it originated. My better half - to use the term VERY loosely - won't go near the places, but will wear the stuff and accept the compliments on his clothes - after they magically appear in his closet. The trouble is that everything is SO reasonably priced that you can justify bringing mounds of stuff home - it's the first step to being featured in an episode of Hoarders...

Re: “Thrift!

hey - i'm still blogging (sporadically) about thrift stores, i just moved. that link in the article to the "directory" is my new site. trust me, you could never "exhaust the subject."

Re: “Thrift!

The Goodwill near Raleigh Springs Mall is also worth checking out.

Re: “Thrift!

I see estate sales as a form of recycling. The previous owner (for whatever reason) no longer has a need for these things, so why not let someone else have the chance to enjoy them? It's certainly better than discarding them entirely. And just think of the previous life and history of these items. It's fascinating to sit at the Lauderdale Mansion's dining room table, which dates back to the late 1800s, and wonder where it originally came from, who owned it, where did they buy it, and what amazing conversations must have taken place over it during all these years. And then there are the bullet holes ...

Re: “Thrift!

Here is the thrift store blog:

Evidently, he's not blogging about thrift stores anymore - I guess he exhausted the subject.
Hope it's OK that I am posting the link here.

Re: “Thrift!

I love thrifting, but can't do the estate sales. I find them too depressing. I can't help but wonder why the estate sale is happening - I always assume it's death or a move to a nursing home.
There used to be a great blog about thrift store shopping. I can't remember the name of it.

Re: “Thrift!

Although it's closed now, The Bibles for China Thrift Store located on Macon Rd. just east of Sycamore View, is due to reopen mid-August. A donated couch left sitting in front of the store a few weeks ago caught fire. The damage was all to the facade but State rules/regs forced them to close and clean up everything. IT IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST PLACE!!!! They opened probably 10-12 years ago and have grown by leaps and bounds. Their clothing is also less expensive than the others. Still another of my favorites - Goodwill on Highway 64 at Summer!
