This Stain Glass Whale Light Measuring 4' Long Was Going To Be Thrown In A Dumpster

This Stain Glass Whale Light Measuring 4' Long Was Going To Be Thrown In A Dumpster

It was hanging in a wood shop so it was covered with a thick layer of saw dust. I brought it home and cleaned it up really well and it turned out looking really nice. I love whales and I'm extremely happy to have saved this beautiful one of a kind piece of art from being destroyed. It's in it's forever home!

My Wonderful 99 Year Old Grandad Is Moving Into A Nursing Home. We Are Cleaning Out His House And I Was Given This, Now One Of My Favourite Possessions

My Wonderful 99 Year Old Grandad Is Moving Into A Nursing Home. We Are Cleaning Out His House And I Was Given This, Now One Of My Favourite Possessions

It is a dice that he made while he was a prisoner of war during WWII. Obviously it isn’t up to casino standards but it must have helped to pass the time! Interestingly, despite the very rustic charm of this piece, my grandad is a very talented woodworker, making beautiful carvings and furniture well into his 80s

I can picture Grandpa going on a long winded rant..."Back in my day, you couldn't get regular dice because of the war, so we made dice by chewing on twigs until they looked like cubes, 'Chance cubes' is what we called them. Anyway, like I was saying, we couldn't get regular dice so if you wanted to play a game you'd have to make some chance cubes. At first we didn't put dots on them, but then fights started breaking out and we found some left over coal to put the dots on. That's the problem with the younger generations now, they all expect the dots to be there when they get their chance cubes now, unlike our generation that hiked up our britches to get the job done ourselves and we were glad to do it."

That might be true but no matter how simple it can still have a lot of sentimental value to the grandchild. Not to speak of that it was made while the grandfather was a prisoner of war... they didn't exactly have saws lying around everywhere.

“My family and friends have always had a love and passion for interesting and unusual things, and we had been texting each other photos of items that we saw (and often purchased) in thrift stores and at yard sales for years. My best friend and I were chatting on Christmas Eve one year and it occurred to us that it might be more fun to share our photos in a Facebook group, rather than via text so that it would be easier to go back and see what each of us had found, and to have a record of what we had seen through the years,” one of the founders told us about how things first got started.

“It really all started as a gathering place intended for our friends and family but we left it as an open group purely because it never occurred to us that anyone outside of our circle would share this odd interest we have.”

My Granny Had Given Me My First Crystal Cat When I Was Roughly In The 4th Grade (Mid 90's)

My Granny Had Given Me My First Crystal Cat When I Was Roughly In The 4th Grade (Mid 90's)

My mom flipped a switch after my parents divorced and ended up in jail, eventually prison. Not many things survived my childhood. One thing I made sure I kept safe and hidden was this crystal cat. Always in my socks, inside a sock, inside a sock, a little nesting doll of sorts. My Granny was my everything, she raised me. My mom passed away almost 4 years ago, then my Granny a year later. I rarely wander Goodwill in the "knick knack" section, something drew me towards it today and I found my third crystal cat! (Second kitty was also found at a different Goodwill about two years ago. ) It's not much, but it makes me think of how far I've come out of the darkness and my beautiful Granny everytime I catch a glimpse of those kitties

The co-founder said that slowly but surely others started to join the group. “I panicked for a moment but then I thought, ‘Heck, it will be intriguing to see what other people have to share. Why not?’ Originally, we expected to have about a dozen members; when strangers started joining, we thought maybe we’d get to a hundred. Now, three years later, we’re approaching the two million-member mark!" The group currently has over 1,875,000 members.

“Who knew that what we all thought was a niche hobby actually has a huge passionate community behind it that just needed a clubhouse to gather in? Witnessing how people connect in this group is what keeps us passionate about running it,” they said. “I personally put between thirty and forty hours a week into moderating the group but every time I see how much joy it brings people, I’m reminded why it’s worth doing all the work it takes.”

According to the co-founder, their favorite thing about the community is how supportive everyone is of other members. “When someone mentions having a bad day, or being ill, or just needing a bit of a morale boost, the community comes out in droves to offer support. We constantly see members lifting each other up, sending each other gifts, and enthusiastically embracing each other's quirks on a daily basis.” Now that’s what we call a wholesome crowd.

“Another wonderful side effect of this community is that it has renewed, and in some cases even sparked, an interest in secondhand shopping for a lot of people. They’re starting to see secondhand stores in a different light. We hear all the time from members who haven’t been thrifting in a long time or have never really been interested in it, and now can’t wait to go out treasure hunting.”

26 billion pounds of clothing go to the landfill each year and shopping secondhand prevents some of that from happening. Not to mention that you get to score some kitschy goods and amazing threads if you’re lucky.

“Some of the most popular posts in our group are people modeling some marvelous, wacky, and amazing outfits they’ve found. And they somehow always manage to look incredible in them. There are a lot of outfits that people have secretly desired in the past, maybe even tried them on, but ultimately passed them up because they felt silly wearing them,” the founder told Bored Panda.

Chippo The Hippo

Chippo The Hippo

This little guy has been in my hands no less than three times at my go to vintage mall market, in Oakdale NY, however he had a chip on his left ear and the seller wanted a firm 12.00. Yesterday my guy came with me to help me hunt pyrex ( he’s my bowl spotter, lol) and I asked him to also keep an eye out for a hippo.. Who does he find? The hippo with the bum ear. He is a cutey and frank promptly started calling him Chippo and insisted on buying him for me. Told me to hit the ear with a sharpie and no one will ever notice. I’d say he’s correct and “Chippo” a Lenox endangered animal series pygmy hippo is now very happy in his new home protecting yet another collection of mine my cornflower blue corning ware lol

My Absolute Favorite Secondhand Possession. The Brain Lamp

My Absolute Favorite Secondhand Possession. The Brain Lamp

My mom picked this up at a yardsale in the 1970's. It somehow survived in our basement tv room through five kids, a few dogs, and a 500 mile move in the mid 1980"s. After my dad passed in 1997, my mom was downsizing and preparing to move again. In the garage sale pile was The Brain. Gasp! Thankfully I happened to be visiting, snatched it up and it once again made a 500 mile trip home with me. It has since survived an additional four moves, kids, dogs, and grandkids. Over the years I have looked for this lamp on different sites. I have never found a match.
