Rarely seen on this thread or anywhere else: unworn M1951 field jacket with a First Army patch, etc. The size is about a 40L+..

Wow! Unworn too - that's very scarce. Nice find!
My introduction to this sordid life was a Hawaiian shirt, of all things...bought for $2, sold for $150. Been chasing that high ever since.
I scoop up the full rack and start flipping backsides - I used to only look at the first few and last few on each rack, since some GW's put their recent ties on the front and others stick them in the back, but I've found keepers in the middle as well. I gotta look at them all (obsessive that way) - ugly ties have yielded a couple peek-a-boo ties that I never would have bought just by looking at the fronts. I've gotten far more choosy and don't grab every BB / PRL / Talbott / etc tie I see...used to walk out with 10 or 12 easy, now it's 1 if I'm lucky and I leave behind those I have learned do not sell, or wouldn't want for myself. I estimate I looked at 800+ ties in the last three days and came home with 4 - two Hermes, one Brioni, and one vintage BB Makers self-tipped wool. Pimpin' ain't easy.
Dear (your username here),
You are formally invited to join in on Round 4 of the Thrift Scavenger Hunt. For whatever reason, you may not have been a participant in the first 3 rounds, but we would love to have you show up for the next round! Round 4 will be played in the same fashion as Round 3, with all new items to challenge you. The goal of "The Hunt" is not only to be the winner, but to force you to look in places of the thrift shops they might not normally look. Places where you may just find something else worth grabbing.
If you are interested in joining Round 4 please RSVP HERE. We will begin the next round as soon as we can get increased participation. The more the merrier!
Why are you still reading this??!?!!? What are you waiting for?

Heh - cue Wes with some estimates of his stock.
Personally I'd rather have less to unload, than more...meaning, stuff sells and no sad faces for having too much.
