    Knocked off a few items at lunch...[​IMG]. Finally the one Wednesday store I hit religiously, despite it's unwillingness to give up anything good, gave me something today.
    I made mine into a wallet sized version with the desired items on the back....then laminated it.

    ^ Impressed.

    PS - I am not competing in this, to be clear.

    Yeah, I would think the master of the game should have to sit out each time, since they could potentially stack the items to their favor.

    To be clear on #7. Does the item have to have a fake Versace, Hermes or Chanel tag on it?

    If you are not thrifting dressed like this you are doing it wrong, that will easily fit in a fanny pack [​IMG]

    Definitely going to second this.

    We should add some more difficult finds.

    Nice. Thinking of heading to Baltimore for a city thrift tonight, might be the perfect place to find one of those.

    Probably a good idea that each winner who goes on to design the next list of items doesn't participate either, since there will be a tendency to design a list around their thrifting environment.

    Double bonus points to anyone that takes a selfie, in store, holding thrift ID and another person visible, while wearing at least 4 items from the list? :)

    Cole haan shoes with a security tag punched through the side.
    Stafford suit priced at more than $50 (thanks local Salvation Army)

    In and subscribed! The Zanellas will be the hardest part for me, I think.

    Spoo: Thanks for getting this going!
