    Nice! So how many competing thrifters do we have here? We need to ramp this up a bit. Would be great to see at least 10 entries.

    Debated posting this over on the AAAC thrift trading thread.... thoughts??

    Not sure they would be interested as there are odd things to find besides J Press Sac 3 Roll 2 Suits and Brooks Brother Repp Ties.

    I definitely is a tough list. Basically an entire black tie rig, small shoes, mannequin that is not marked NFS, and a fake high end watch is a tall order for sure. But challenges are fun. If it was easy, what would be fun about it, right?

    I think it's great to have some really hard items on every list, but only with the "don't need everything to enter" proviso. It's a great format, makes it easy to knock out enough in a day to stand a fighting chance, but keeps the diehards hunting for rares to optimize their entry.

    Found a pair of Allen Edmonds in 6D. :)

    Halfway home, looked at the picture and realized I hadn't gotten my whole name badge in the picture (missing username). :(

    I found a pair of 6 1/2 cowboy boots. I didn't know they made cowboys so small. Hmmm, perhaps they were womens boots. I guess I'll let Brianpore judge that.
    I don't think they were womens.[​IMG] I find myself hiding in all the corners of the store to take my photos so that nobody should think Im a terrorist.[​IMG] What a world we live in!
