"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."
"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)."
"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."
"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."
"My mom got me this today at the thrift store and i love it."
"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!!!"
"Found this strange looking pot at the Goodwill. I had to buy it. Loved all the comical animal pictures on 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..."
"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"
"I procured a passel of partially painted piggies in a pretty package! Pondering painting 'em psychedelic patinas..."
"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."
"My absolute favorite Goodwill purse find that I wear a LOT! It's a 3D flat purse. I had wanted one for a really long time, but they're normally $75 brand new. This one still had the plastic sheeting on the buttons and was never worn. I think I paid $7-$8!!! It's surprisingly roomy inside. MAGIC!
EDIT: This is an original Jump From Paper bag. Yes, I know there's cheap ones online, but those are knock offs. Please love and support your designers and artists by buying originals. Ok, off my soap box. Thanks!"
"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."
"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!"
"U see this guy in the club...with the polyester Taco-Cat button up...smash or pass?"
"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."
"These awesome T-rexes came home with me today. The bowties reminded me of the SNL skit. I shall name them Patrick and Chris!"
"It's a stamp. And one of my most cherished thrifting finds."
"Not sure if it classes as weird...a find in a local charity shop in Sheffield UK"
