It had been a while since I really scored at Cargo Largo. Cargo Largo, you say? Why yes, my friend. Cargo Largo. The artist formerly known as "RSO" in the lovely Independence, Missouri. Surely you've heard of this city before in the Midwest. Noteworthy mentions of Independence:
- Harry S. Truman: Buck stops here, yo. And our 33rd President? A resident of Independence.
- Albert Pujols: Cardinals first baseman. He went to Fort Osage High School and the local community college, Maple
- Jesus slide: I've been here before....on a class field trip.
- Meth Capital of the World? What? Maybe.
And Cargo Largo. In short, it's the island of misfit toys that were damaged freight, marred, on clearance or something to the effect of "Well, I guess we can sell it here." Enter the glass case in the designer/boutique selection. Overcrowded and scratched, the glass cases house many treasures and bargains. Jack Spade waxwear canvas dopp kit? Alright.
WHAT & WHY SO MUCH? What's wrong with it? I mean, my last Dopp kit was a Ziploc bag. Regular: $145, sale $60. I'll have this thing for the rest of my life. It's sharp looking.
BUT WHAT'S WRONG WITH MY ZIPLOC BAG DOPP KIT? I know. How embarrassing. That was my travel Dopp kit. Until I got this bad boy. Organized, clean—and I'm not going to throw it away at the end of the weekend.
THE ICING: These ties. Cheap, cheap, cheap.
