Why dont we start a thrift thread scavenger hunt? Could be fun to add some interest to the slim picking late summer months, no?

Anyone else game or am I just bored.

 

Sure, why not.

I was thinking a 10-15 item list to pull in a 2 week period.

Example :

1 harris tweed, 1 piece of lenox crystal, one Dior tie, one Polo polo, etc. Not specifically those things, but you get the idea. You have to find all 15 things, then everyone posts and we can vote on the best variation of what was found.

I'd love to be in on the scavenger hunt but my access to thrift stores will be reduced on vacation. Maybe next round.

You know what brainpore says... every item has a buyer; you've just got to wait for them.

I'm game.  Not (yet) being a flipper/consigner, I get frustrated when I find nice things (like the 5 pairs of Zanella flat front trousers not in my size yesterday, or the Canali trousers today).

 

The only thing I bought this weekend was a huge pasta/salad bowl in our stoneware pattern - bringing my total of huge pasta/salad bowls in my pattern to 3, so I'm ready to entertain!

Dang! Oh well....

Spoo: I'm in on a scavenger hunt. Sounds like fun!

Im in!

Some ideas (arising from those Gucci's mentioned):
  • Pants with largest waist/inseam spread (i.e. widest shortest man)
  • SC with the shortest t-rex arms
  • Pants with largest waist size with a Slim fit tag on them

Still new around here but totally in for a scaventhrift hunt.
post #74864 of 134617

idea: mislabeled/fake item "Brioni Bangkok" etc

post #74865 of 134617

I'm in, as long as the list is do-able, like the example you gave.  Reasonably easy-to-find stuff so I don't get too frustrated and further depressed, haha, ah.

I normally don't do t-shirts, but these are awesome! I think '70s medium might do me just fine...

My one find from the weekend (only went out once, today on a last-minute whim on the way home from the museum).  Keeping, since it's a much-needed staple that fits well even though marked M:
