post #586 of 903

Holy cow, that's a tough list.  Also, my wife will be disappointed that I'm either changing our last name, or divorcing her to marry someone descended from a Scottish clan... hopefully she would be more disappointed at the latter.

I have got this one in my pocket. Well as long as I can beat this leg infection. I'm finding it tough to walk.

Have no fear....I will press on.

Happy thrifting.

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.

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.

"Well, Roberts had grown so rich, he wanted to retire. So he took me to his cabin and told me his secret: "I am not the Dread Pirate Roberts," he said. "My name is Ryan. I inherited this ship from the previous Dread Pirate Roberts, just as you will inherit it from me. The man I inherited it from was not the real Dread Pirate Roberts, either. His name was Cummerbund. The real Roberts has been retired fifteen years and living like a king in Patagonia." Then he explained the name was the important thing for inspiring the necessary fear. You see, no one would surrender to the Dread Pirate Westley. GORDON So we sailed ashore, took on an entirely new crew and he stayed aboard for awhile as first mate, all the time calling me Roberts. Once the crew believed, he left the ship and I have been Roberts ever since. Except, now that we're together, I shall retire and hand the name over to someone else. Is everything clear to you?"

Should not be a problem. Lots of watch guys out there, someone will ref in case of pedantic contestants.

I don't plan on needing to be so precise, I am going to dominate GORDAN (saying a prayer for your wife's nerves, and your dog) and the rest of youse guys.

 

Although:

"automatic or self-winding watch is a mechanical watch in which the mainspring is wound automatically as a result of natural motion of the wearer's arm, to provide energy to run the watch, making manual winding unnecessary."

 

Just a heads up, the Seiko Kinetic watch line is NOT an automatic watch, it does not use a mainspring but a standard quartz movement... :teach:
