Shopping at thrift stores is pretty exciting. You never know what you're going to find next. Regular stores usually have generic themes and you have a basic understanding of what they offer. But with thrift stores, it's like opening the old metal cookie box in your grandma's attic. From a Jesus Magic 8-Ball to a sassy "grandfather" clock/shelf, you’d pretty much have to buy these things if you found them stumbled upon. Nobody could miss such an opportunity. Scroll down, enjoy, and upvote your faves.

For more similar pics, check out our older collections of rare secondhand finds here, here, and here.

The younger generation is possibly the most environmentally-conscious one yet, and to protect our earth people are taking initiative to reduce waste. Buying clothes from thrift shops significantly reduces not just waste but pollution as well.

Thrift shopping probably pleases millennials the most—a group fond of supporting local businesses and/or companies with shared value systems. "Millennials are very keen to do something that helps other people," Ekstrand said. "They want that connection; they want to feel good about being environmentally conscious. They want to do the right thing."

"To my surprise this piece of tape was on the bottom. It reads 'From Aunt Mandy on our 25th wedding anniversary Dec 1961', 'Cup given to Grandma Lange's mother on her 25th ann.'Soooo....I have a Great Aunt Mandy and my Grandma was a Lange. With a bit of research we determined that this cup was given to MY great great grandmother approx in 1868!!!"

I Found A Gift I Made For Someone In A Thrift Store

I Found A Gift I Made For Someone In A Thrift Store

 It’s a big, squishy, crocheted blanket made with bernat blanket yarn. I made it in 2017 for a dear older friend that I knew from our coordinated 3x a week outpatient hospital infusions. I visited her when she was inpatient in hospital and gave her the blanket. She was so touched! She wasn’t getting a lot of visitors and I really felt for her. She passed christmas day, 2017. I’m not mad, just a bit sad thinking about it sitting there. It was stained and looked pretty well-loved... I’d like to think it was a comfort in her last days

I personally hand sewed all the sequins and appliqués, for competitions in beauty pageants. When I saw it I nearly fell over. No one in my family knows how it got an hour’s drive away, after 24 years. Pretty proud though, my yee haw creation was marked at $80.
