post #676 of 903
Personally I'm still hoping to find a PRL Harris Tweed topcoat with MacLeod of Harris tartan lining. Not holding out hope though.
I ran across a Ferragamo tie with sea creatures, but otherwise I'm doing quite well on my quest to find qualifying items from absolutely offensive labels (except where labels are specified).
Probably won't get out again before the first. Too much real life stuff getting in the way. I need a legit job so that I can stop looking for one and get back to thrifting.

It's been ridiculous here this month. Closest I've gotten to fulfilling that requirement has been Gucci.









Paulo Gucci.

I'm pretty much limited to two stores while only thrifting at lunch. Makes it kinda tough.

 

Good news...I will probably be going on a 8 hour binge on Thursday. Maybe Friday too......an possibly Saturday.

An admittedly weak finish, but I've had some stuff I've been dealing with this month.

The List Items I Actually Found:

3.Made in England men’s shirt
photo IMG_20130927_162809_524_zps2e350b65.jpg
4.Tartan men’s accessory or clothing. If you can identify the Scottish clan +1 bonus point. If you or your significant other’s last name is same with that clan +1 more bonus point.
Pretty sure this is Campbell of Cawdor, which would be the tartan on my paternal grandmother's side.
photo IMG_20130927_145052_698_zps7bd57e03.jpg

9.A real fur coat, or a coat with real fur accents- proof necessary-
Could have had this -- many times over -- at my local, of all places, but I only dashed in without even my wallet or my phone, just a $20 bill (which is usally more than enough)


12.Brass candle holder.

21.Tie with sea critters print. A bowtie with same type of print is +1 bonus point. Whales 1+ bonus point.

23.Beer glass with a European beer name on.
photo IMG_20130927_150418_790_zps89ab0ef0.jpg

25.Harris tweed jacket in plaid or stripes (no pure herringbone or pure pepper and salt pattern). STRIPED on top of herringbone

And where the hell was this shirt last week??!!

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.

7. The competition is ruthless, very competitive, and pedantic. Make sure match the item or check with the ref if any doubts (me).
The List:

1.A Turkish bathrobe (i.e.towel), if Made in Turkey +1 bonus point
2.Exotic skin men’s shoe (lizard, snake, emu, shark etc). Proof necessary: either written or Spoo verified.
3.Made in England men’s shirt
4.Tartan men’s accessory or clothing. If you can identify the Scottish clan +1 bonus point. If you or your significant other’s last name is same with that clan +1 more bonus point.
5.Wind instrument- woodwinds, brass winds etc. If Yamaha +1 bonus point.
6.Any J.Press item.
7.A selvedge jean, men or women’s.
8.Thomas the Tank Engine locomotive, a wooden Gordon +1 bonus point
9.A real fur coat, or a coat with real fur accents- proof necessary-
10.Made in USA plaid, double breasted suit.
11.A corduroy three piece suit. If colors are close (all shades of brown etc), gathering three separate pieces is acceptable as long as in one shop/ i.e same photo.
12.Brass candle holder.
13.Made in England Dr. Marten.
14.Any Brioni , Canali, Isaia, Corneliani, Barbera, or Kiton item
15.Handknit cardigan –tag proof necessary-, Made in Iceland or Ireland +1 bonus point.
16.Polo Ralph Lauren topcoat. Purple Label, of course, is accepted and gets a bonus point. Lauren gets only half point i.e. -0.5 bonus.

18.Non-plastic music box (metallic, wooden, porcelain). If works, record it and get one bonus point.
19.Any teak furniture -see Frenchyfoundit-

Right there with you bro. I was planning to post final finds later this afternoon. Problem for me is, I still might not get another chance to thrift before the 6th!

That's just a regular point. That's Thomas. You need a Wooden Gordon to get the bonus....

Just to clarify...we are looking for cardigans only, correct? I am convinced that no cardigans were ever made in Iceland or Ireland, every other type of sweater, but no cardigans. I think they were banned in those countries.
