Concealed: Youch.

0 thifting for me, 0 in the foreseeable future. Been listing like crazy between baby feedings. Wife turns to me: "Wow. We're getting a lot less sleep than I thought we would." ORLY? And she wondered why I was OK when Bridget was still at the hospital and the NURSES woke up with her at 2AM.

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.

I'm in! Whats the first item? We should do this weekly, as a lot of us go multiple times a week, no?

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
