Just playing with the monkey.  Working on something a little more serious, unless this gets wide approval.

Alright.

If you get 20 contestants this round, something from me too. I may wind up competing if you post the list before the weekend.

You are thrifting for charity


Prize: I will donate $100 to your favorite charity ( with previously stated exceptions). Wes will match it if you beat him. If 20 people post results, Spoo will sweeten the deal. All donors have a right to refuse to charity you pointed for their personal reasons and ask another one. But in the end you get to choose. Sadly I can not compete but Wes and Spoo are eligible.




This is a scavenger hunt that anyone can participate in. You do not need to sign up but you need to report results to win. 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 October 6th 2013, midnight to find and post 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 don't have all the items will be the winner.
