“It’s all fun and games until you realize the first panel is a sex act. It did not come home with me.”

“Found a magazine ad of my Great Grandma and twin uncles from 1952! They’re all gone now, so it’s a doubly amazing find.”

This T-Rex phone

“Today’s find…they may look like normal old ratty chairs, but here’s the kicker – I already owned them once before. Brought them to the US from Europe when I moved back home in 2001, and stored them with a relative. After a rift in the family, I considered them a loss. Here they are, nearly 20 years later, in a 2nd hand store. Though they may be much worse for the wear, they’re coming home with me (again).”

“My new favorite shirt I found”

“It just occurred to me that you guys might appreciate this. I found it at goodwill, new with tags and could not believe my luck.”

“Here is just one of my weird one’s”

A brutally honest plate

“Just a bunny sitting on a lawn chair reading a book. He spoke to me at GW and I rescued him. He moved into my bookshelf and looks happy.”

“If only I had known it could be this easy. Maybe I should have brought this one home.”


“This literally threw itself in my cart”

“Found this yesterday at GW.”

“When you have feet like Tinkerbell…. Original Docs, immaculate condition. At least eight people tried to cram their feet into these while I was in the store. It was like Cinderella meets the Hunger Games. They’re a perfect fit. Sometimes the odds really ARE in your favour!!!”

“My mom got me this today at the thrift store and i love it.”

“I was poking around a quiet antique store when a booming male voice said “come closer, try your luck! Dont be afraid.” I jumped so badly I nearly knocked over a display… needless to say, he didn’t come home with me…”

“Found this strange looking pot at the Goodwill. I had to buy it. Loved all the comical animal pictures on it.”

“I almost didn’t buy this whimsical AF lamp today, because I am a grown-ass woman, but then I remembered I’m a grown-ass woman, and I can do what I want. Also it was $2. Bought at Twice Blest in Palatine, IL.”

Cartoon Backpack

“I sure hope it works.. amazing! Just an edit for those who don’t read comments: it works, AND glows in the dark, AND has flashing blue/green/red lights. I am truly blessed”

“LOOK what I found today. It is 110% haunted and I will love it until it possesses my soul and I stop feeling human emotion.”

“U see this guy in the club…with the polyester Taco-Cat button up…smash or pass?”

“I procured a passel of partially painted piggies in a pretty package! Pondering painting ’em psychedelic patinas…”

“Once upon a time my children knocked the father wall pocket off the wall, shattering him. Today I found this mug. CHILDREN, FATHER CAME HOME!”

“It’s a stitch purse!”

“It’s a stamp. And one of my most cherished thrifting finds.”

“I found this teapot purse at the local Goodwill…I’m a potter by trade, so obviously I HAD to buy it! The funniest thing is, the spout has a real hole, so all my money can pour out I guess.”

“Hands down, my favorite possession.”

“These awesome T-rexes came home with me today. The bowties reminded me of the SNL skit. I shall name them Patrick and Chris!”

“Elvis has NOT left the building because, where would we put him!?!?”

“Not sure if it classes as weird…a find in a local charity shop in Sheffield UK”
