    Lol, I read it on the way to Baltimore and swore it said NOMINATE, not DOMINATE. I couldn't figure out what you were nominating me for....even if you did spell my name wrong.

    20 Stores in a weekend? WTF you must live in thrift haven, I would have to drive several hundred miles to get 20 different stores...

    Good lord, there is 1 SA in my town of 40K, 1 SA in the neighboring town. 1 SA, 1 GW, 2 Savers and a SVdP 20 miles south in Ocooney's town. I am sure there are tiny little church thrifts but I don't count those cause they are open like every other Saturday from 1 - 3 pm.

    I drive north there is similar dearth of stores, I would have to drive into Boston area to start hitting the thrift centers 45 miles E.

    Drive farther. I do.

    75 in a one month rotation. Not every week.

    Dude, drive into Boston. My wife and I spent two days thrifting there. I'm still selling stuff from that haul.

    6 goodwills, a SA's, 2 VV's and at least 11 independents in a 25 mile radius of our house. We picked our house out based on the geographic epi-center of thrift stores in the ATL. (give or take a block)

    After my embarrassing no-show on the last round, and conviction not to thrift again until late Oct after I list some backlog, not gonna hop on this one.

    On the upside, having fun digging thru stuff I forgot I had - this Sunday's listings will be sweater-centric.

    I'm back, and I'm in. Probably won't find squat, but it'll be fun to do, and it'll get me to follow the thread again. Clearly I've been getting too much done in real life (why is it that I'm still so far behind?). Er, by the way, where are the exceptions to acceptable charities? Didn't read back far enough to find them.

    Nice. If one more person signs we are good. Nondenominational charities are acceptable like Care, doctorswithout borders etc.

    I should have read the list a tad more carefully. Now I have photos of two Harris Tweeds that do not have stripes or a plaid pattern. On the plus side, two Harris Tweed sport coats at $.99 each.
