I have three Irish at home and sold an Icelandic one last year. Passed couple of Aran and Blarneys this year. It is Murphy's thrifting rule. You can not find it because you are looking for it. You will find six next week.

It's ok, I met the criteria, just want that bonus. I have found at least a dozen quality sweaters due to the search though.

No, Wes is right. It all has to do with a 19th Century treaty having to do with former Norse colonies (Ireland got sucked in because of Dublin). Hate to say it catside, but yours must have been forgeries. There's a real cottage industry of those operating in the midwest.

Based on Murphy's Rule of Thrifting, I humbly request that the next list consist solely of Kiton, Tom Ford, Alden shells (in 11E!), vicuña, cashmere, how about solid gold, oh and a Ferrari.

+1 and :fence: on the 11E! I would also like to request a Patek Philippe be one of the scavenger hunt items perhaps this one, which is the Rose Gold version.

Posting now, as I struck out today on my store runs.  My entries keep getting weaker and weaker.  I need to up my game for the next round.

 

Orange Snakes!

 

I couldn't recall the exact deets on this item.  It has an overcheck, I hope that works.

 

IT shirt

 

Euro beer glass

 

Tartan pants

 

Brass candle holder

My revised entry:

An admittedly weak finish, but I've had some stuff I've been dealing with this month.
Previously found: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
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.

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.

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

GMMcL- 15

I had to check if there are indeed sea frogs. Turns out yes.
Anybody who wants to contest the ID of the tartan by G, be my guest. Since Wes is going to beat 15 anyway, I did not bother to research.
