    I can see myself at 10 points or so. I had to Google the 25.

    Still working on him. He thought it would be weird carrying around, taking pics of, and posting pics of himself. Lol



    Me too

    If you also do a eBay completed listings search, you may thank me depending on what you find. I sold a $0.50 coffee mug for $75 a couple years back.

    Fire King, along with nice vintage Pyrex and even Melmac has disappeared from every thrift I have been to for years. MCM hipsters hoarding it.

    Checked 8 or so items off the list today. Stores were really packed, though, so I opted to skip looking for a few items until things were calmer. I did get a lot of weird looks when taking pics, though. [​IMG]

    [​IMG]. I was wondering what everyone here does about the pics. I run around to all corners of the store and hide behind racks where no one can see me, but man, that makes it tough! I got 9 done but only the easier ones. I'm betting that cap will be keeping his 50$.[​IMG]

    $30 really. Someone will at least win the $20. You never know....it's a game of determination, skill and luck. It is unlikely anyone will complete the whole bonus, but definitely possible.
