Didn't win but found som stuff for self will rejoin next search !
post #846 of 903
Just a few things to enter this time, but at least I can keep up the numbers. Probably won’t be in on the next round. Never found the red Union tag with a R, or else I'd have that too.
Reindeer mug

Mask with Selfie

SC that was somewhere between the loudest and the ugliest I could find. Should have grabbed the guy I saw at Aldi this afternoon, he would have won the whole thing.

lol these mask selfies are hysterical.

can i gently suggest a smaller, more concise, but harder list for future contestants? an extensive 25 piece list is hard to remember/check/keep up with IMO.

Well, in that case I am having a solid number of items sold this week.

Terrible showing on my behalf, between travel and day job busyness I had zero time to get out there. 

 

Marginally loud sport coat:

 

post #852 of 903

:embar: I did not work hard enough on this one.

 

Loud coat.

 

V Cleat.

 

 

Snowflake sweater?  Closest I saw.

 

 

Loro Piana tag.

 

 

I don't know anything about camo, so I snapped this and thought I'd throw it up there.  Probably not the camo I'm looking for.

 

post #853 of 903

My meager entry, kept forgetting things on the list

 

Like a Schott, not a Schott...bought it anyways

 

 

Golden Fleece Tag

 

 

5 LF's, take my word for it, couldnt get them all in the picture without throwing them on the floor

 

 

Reindeer Mug

 

 

LP Tag

Tough list + prep for job interview / fuggedaboutit x good cause = 1 entry with toggle coat parka duffle thingy

Looks like 10 participants this time. I think that is a new record. That's $50 more toward this rounds donation. I will tally up the points in the morning, and announce winner and total donation amount tomorrow.
