    You are talking at least $300-400 resale value. YMMV. Those are about $800-$1200 a piece new.

    You guys are made this really tough.

    Five entries...

    5th place goes to GMMcL with 8 complete and 4 bonus points for a total of 12
    4th place goes to Spoo with 10 complete and 3 bonus points for a total of 13
    3rd place goes to Richnet12 with 11 complete and 7 bonus points for a total of 18

    Then we have Bytor13 and Brianpore and it was very close.

    Bytor13
    The feather saved you on the vest.
    I can't give you 15 because is specifically called for a PAIR of bookends.
    Love the picture of Jim

    Brianpore
    Had to dock number 10 since I can't tell its actually a down vest
    Luckily you had the second set of bookends because the first set is actually curtain rod ends.
    Not sure that really is a fedora, but it's definitely not a cowboy hat.
    I appreciate you putting your submission in order.

    Both of the winners have been from the Northeast (PA, NJ). You could say New England shall rise again! instead

    ROUND 3
    THE RULES - CAREFUL, THERE ARE A COUPLE MINOR CHANGES
    [​IMG]

    OK guys, heres the deal. This is a scavenger hunt that anyone can participate in. Check the quick rules below and go out a huntin'.

    1. All the items below must be found in thrift shops. That means thrift, charity, church and other places. Consignment stores do not count, nor does full price retail environments.

    2. You do not need to purchase the item in question, you must only take a picture of it and upload it here when complete (please see below for clarification on when to upload)

    3. You must print the picture above and include it with your photo of the item. They must not be photoshopped and be in the same shot. For fun, please include the price tag.

    4. Do NOT upload photos one by one if you check a few things off the list. You must only upload everything in one shot when you complete all the items on the list. Occasional teasers are permitted.

    5. You have until August 31 to find all the items on the list.

    6.Each item is worth 1 point and each bonus point is worth 1. Whoever has the most points (get those bonus points!!), even if they dont have all the items will be the winner.

    Thats pretty much it - go out and hit the shops and whoever has the most points in total wins!

    The prize - I'm giving a New Isaia Lapel Pin (bonus point if you thrift a suit to wear it with) to the winner. The winner's responsibility also comes with starting a new scavenger hunt with new items as well.
