    It has been a very dry couple of weeks at the thrift. I had a spectacular run of a couple of weeks ago, then, nothing. I got excited this week as I spotted the profile of one of these guys on the shelf. I snaked my arm through the heavy crowd and snapped it up...all excited. Before I could look at it, there was another one and I repeated the snake snap routine.
    Shucks, not Lisa Larson!
    They are Counterpoint/San Francisco...then it says Made in Japan.
    Well I couldn't leave them there, so these Jumbo S&Ps came home with me.
    If anyone has a good tip on how to get the thrift "marker" off these types of items, please share.
    The hunt continues...

      Have a similar problem at our thrift store. They like to put stickers that do not come off easily over critical labels on items. We got a couple of San Francisco music boxes in original boxes that have a Goodwill sticker all over the label.

      Hear ya trgrubaugh. I have slowly used a damp paper towel to lift those edges.
      If you look at my last pic, there is the marketed price. Sometimes they scrub off, sometimes not. I use various products, including extra strength goo gone, CLR and Noxon. Most times it works, but I have a few of my key pieces that I need to do something about. Anyone?
      Thanks Bellin68, you were either up late last night, or up early this morning.
