Bike Show

Sunday, Mat and I went to a bicycle show in Ann Arbor. We were hoping to come back with some new bikes, which unfortunately didn't happen, but we did score some new t-shirts.

This shirt is super comfortable:

His is even better, I'll try and get a picture. We also hit up the Value World out there and I found some good shirts, including a Detroit Tigers shirt and a 1985 Yngwie Malmsteen tour t-shirt. All in all, a good day.

I spotted a vintage purple Fuji last week at a different resale shop, but when I went to go pick it up, it was gone. I love my Schwinn, but I'm on the lookout for a second bike.

Look at that, two posts in two days! I am on a roll.

The weather is AMAZING, yesterday it hit 85 and right now it is 79. I went for a 2 hour bike ride this morning, and I think I made it about 25 miles. The weather was perfect and I felt amazing.

Last night Mat and I rode around a little bit (he was riding a Volkscycle) and ended up getting ice cream cones and Slurpees. It doesn't get much better than that, in my opinion. Since it was in the '80s, by the time we got back to his house we were drenched. I threw on these vintage Nike shorts:

I love 'em! Not to mention, I'm so happy that it's shorts weather. It was a long, long winter, and I'm glad it's over! Tomorrow we are going to check out a bike show/swap meet, and so I'm hoping to come home with a second bicycle... we'll see!

We haven't really been thrifting a lot lately, partly because we don't have the time and partly because we don't have the space for anything, but don't worry because I have lots and lots of items not yet on the blog.

Have an amazing weekend!

I'm Back?

I am considering starting up this blog again. I really miss doing it. The only problem is, I'm not sure if I will have the time to devote to it. But I'm going to try and make the time. So if you have continued to read this blog, then thank you for your support and I will be back!

I still have a few photos that I never got around to posting, so check out this vintage Levi's Olympics velour track jacket:

I believe this was for the 1984 Olympics. Check out the patch on the back!

That is the best part. We actually own three of these jackets now, but mine is the only one with a patch. Pretty rad.

It is finally starting to feel like spring here in Michigan; it's actually supposed to be 80 all weekend. I'm contemplating buying a second bike; I don't really need it, but I want it. Is that a smart way to spend $75? Hmm. Thoughts?
