Wait, so the person who won second prize is someone whose first posting had an incorrect answer, which she changed once she saw the correct answer posted? Not really fair, in my humble opinion. I didn't win, but at least I didn't win fair and square. I had a feeling this would happen when the answers were posted in the comments rather than sent via email.

I can't believe you couldn't notice how fake that scarf was. The fringes on the REAL scarf are on the length of the entire scarf. The FAKE only has fringes on the edges of the scarf and it was much wider.

I agree, it seems like people she knew or have spoken with are the winners.

The winners are also nearby, one in DC and the other in Philly, so I guess Claire didn't want to pay that much in shipping and handling costs.
