THE RULES - Will be the same as round 3



OK guys, heres the deal. This is a scavenger hunt that anyone can participate in. Check the quick rules below and go out a huntin'.

1. All the items below must be found in thrift shops. That means thrift, charity, church and other places. Consignment stores do not count, nor does full price retail environments.

2. You do not need to purchase the item in question, you must only take a picture of it and upload it here when complete (please see below for clarification on when to upload)

3. You must print the picture above and include it with your photo of the item. They must not be photoshopped and be in the same shot. For fun, please include the price tag.

4. Do NOT upload photos one by one if you check a few things off the list. You must only upload everything in one shot when you complete all the items on the list. Occasional teasers are permitted.

5. You have until September 15 to find all the items on the list. 


6.Each item is worth 1 point and each bonus point is worth 1. Whoever has the most points (get those bonus points!!), even if they dont have all the items will be the winner.

Thats pretty much it - go out and hit the shops and whoever has the most points in total wins!

The prize - I'm giving a $20 Visa gift card to the winner. The winner's responsibility also comes with starting a new scavenger hunt with new items as well.


EDIT: If the winner finds all the items and also meets all the bonus criteria for the round, the prize will be a $50 Visa Gift Card!
