    With all the yip yapperin n jaw jabberin talk about the categories for these awards, I got lost as to whether or not "most improved" was something we sticking with.

    If so, I would like to nominate EazyE. Yes I know he has been thrifting for a few years, but this guy has been absolutely killin it with the best of the best. He may never have 20-30 item hauls, but damn does he know how to pick em consistently. 1 2 or 3 at a time, and you know hes got that fire. And for the pure fact that a lot of his items he uses for himself or the wifey. He should just make a list of items and brands and quality descriptions of what hes gotten just this year alone. Luggage, 1ofaKind Sweaters, shoes, outerwear GALORE! So much awesome and unique rare outwear.

    MOST IMPROVED 2013!

    I think the Ferrari is.a nominee for the flipper of the year award, or perhaps lifetime achievement in flipping. No offense, I'm in awe but it's just not thrifted.

    Sorry spoo, but i will challenge you on that, was it thrifted? or consignment prices? My skyline was "Thrifted" at a mere $2,800. (She had rust,now fixed) and is fast as a mouse trap. looks nice too! so nominating myself. [​IMG]
    for this.....
    [​IMG]

    i have spent $4000 since this pic. (mostly thrifted) so it's still a hot whip for the money.
    (i wanted to nominate a super rare backpack, but this will have to do.[​IMG])

    But the story is awesome spoo, congrats on your dreams achieved. you should get an award. i mean it. for a lifetime achievement in thrifting. like catside said.

    Hmmm, I found a Leica this year too, but can't find the post since the stupid search tool seems to be broken.

    Scratch that....it was not at a thrift....
