$10 Thrift Shop Set

brendanw

Found this set at a local thrift shop for $10. No branding on anything and it’s probably nothing special but hey $10

Nice find!  Always nice to find a chess set in a thrift store that isn't made of glass pieces or shot glasses.

I love thrift stores, although I haven't been in one for a long while. It's cool that all the pieces r there.

The king and queen look very clearly like the Chinese made (I think) chess sets that are sold on Amazon and stores like Target and Walmart for under $30 probably. By mentioning that I don’t mean it’s bad or that you shouldn’t have bought it.

The other pieces look nicer than the ones I’ve seen, particularly the pawns. I also cannot tell what size they are from the photos.

Just checked, the squares are 1 1/3" and King is 3"

Very nice set, especially for $10 .  I like it. Very warm feelings and good vibe comes from this chess set, by the looks of it .
