Wheres the rest of the contestants?
post #707 of 903
If no one else show I might need to hit a late night thrift so I can at least tie for first.
post #708 of 903

Alright, I might post mine shortly... I really wanted to hold out for suspense though. Plus I wanted to see if I need to start shelling out my hundred bucks before I spend it on listings ending tonight.

Sad. Everybody is excited about flipping, it seems thrifters left the boards.

Not sure how it could go either way? Ireland is not England, it isn't even part of the United Kingdom (Northern Ireland is). My Grandmother would spit if someone said England/Ireland same diff... :nest:

post #718 of 903

im going to see "travis" tonight. i hope everyone else has a good showing. lets see it capn!

** travis, scottish band, not english.**

post #719 of 903

Pretty poor showing on my part.  Busy season at my day job, so I've been working pretty long hours - and the thrifts have been closed when I get out.  :(  Also, if I'd read the specifications of a couple items closer, I'd have gotten 3-4 more.

 

 


2.Exotic skin men’s shoe (lizard, snake, emu, shark etc). Proof necessary: either written or Spoo verified.

 

 



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.

 

 


9.A real fur coat, or a coat with real fur accents- proof necessary-

 

 


14.Any Brioni , Canali, Isaia, Corneliani, Barbera, or Kiton item

 

Feel kinda dumb on this one - I picked up three Cornelianis and a Canali, all next to each other on the rack - and forgot to take a photo!


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.  Don't know if this one counts.  Closer to a trench coat than a topcoat.  

 

 


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

 

post #720 of 903
