i'm on the hunt for vintage biker gloves like the ones above. preferably black leather ones. although i've spotted some on ebay & etsy, i want to search thrift stores/flea markets for them. there is nothing like the hunt for something in piles and piles of stuff.
once you find exactly what you're looking for (and if you're patient & doing it right, you will find it. simple as that.) amongst a pile of other people's shitty (and sometimes not so shitty) unwanted stuff, it's like a tiny sassy sparkly angel falls from the clouds into the palm of your hands. to quote the barefoot contessa, "how bad can that be?" (I HAD TO)
