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?

 

Thanks,

Capnwes

(Undefeated Scavenger Hunt Champion)

Yes, I've scavenged. Fishy is quite capable of going all catfish on the bay. 

See above.... We need you.

What's the prize for this round?  Might help motivate a few that are on the fence.

I can't actually hunt until I get back to Seattle, but I'm pumped! 

Speaking of which... THREE DAYS! 

:D

 


Also e-thrifted this, not quite thrift prices but pretty solid:

Turns out it's not a brochure. I pull out a Polaroid of one of the most disturbing images I've ever seen: an old, wrinkly, obese grandmother completely naked after what appears to be open heart surgery...

Maybe this was missed because it was edited after being paged, but just wanted to say it made for a good laugh over here. Yikes...

Heh, you married guys must just have to go for it whenever you can, hey.

Do you mean Harry Rosen? If so, no idea, but I have a pair too and they're awesome.

 

Nice looking fit. However... I'm no church-going man, but I'm pretty sure you're supposed to be buttoned one higher in a house of the Lord.

Sorry dude, my car dying has pretty much sunk my thrifting down to nothing. Still trying to figure out an alternative.

Don't find tailored clothing very often (I mostly buy for myself, 36R/S is a hard size to come by), so it's typically more SW&D stuff.

 

Recent pickups:

Gilded Age Popover - Made in Japan 

 

 

RRL Henley

 

 

 

 

LVC 1947 501XX

On to the finds. An aztec/navajo pattern United Colors of Benetton. Made in Italy. It's so busy I missed the hole near the cuff. censored.gif


 

 


Mint late '50s to early-'60s varsity collared cardigan.

I'm going to try an experiment, probably on etsy. Fur is coming back. I see a lot of fur but much of it ratty and ragged, not a lot of premium stuff. But I though I'd test the waters. Vintage muskrat coat. Looks ratty in the photo but it's in VG condition, including the lining. Oh, and if you want to read about the resurgence in fur, here ya go:

That phrase will always be funny.

 

Levi's Little "e" 501. After some further digging, they're actually late 70's or early 80's. I love the history of Levi's because of all the little nuances that exist. It's fun trying to date the product. 

 

Anyway, here you go.
