    Once finished the first stage

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    "Once finished the first stage of his new self-imposed ritual, Tim left the building where he lived wearing and old shirt, blue shorts and sandals with socks. He walked a couple of blocks looking for the right place for the second stage, which he found near a plaza. In that place, Tim took a velvet pouch which contains his "lucky coins" out of his pocket shorts. Then, he took out three coins with a strange figure on one side and throws the coins on the floor."


    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
