If you think thrift stores, yard sales, and flea markets are filled with nothing but piles of junk, you're missing out. Some incredibly lucky people discover the best things there, but those who search second-hand shops without finding the things they're looking for usually stumble upon the next best thing - laughter. Bored Panda has collected some of the funniest thrift store finds ever, and the pictures will definitely make you run to that garage sale you walked by.

From "unusual" chocolate molds that look like pee pees to stoner books disguised as reads about cats, these gems were probably bought the second they drew the buyers' attention. Scroll down to check out the hilarious items and upvote your faves!
