It's true what say - one man's trash is another man's treasure, especially when it comes to second-hand items.  We all know that thrift stores are loaded with amazing items that are yet to be treasured by new owners. Somebody created a facebook group to help people share all the amazingly weird things they encounter while browsing Goodwill's shelves. We made a list of some of the most unusual specimens scroll below to see them!

"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 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!"

You know that when you buy originals but not from the original artist, the artist still gets 0? You might as well buy a cheap knockoff. If you want to support your designers and artists, buy their originals _from them_.

Apart from the subject, the phrase: "I almost didn’t [do something], because I am a grown-ass woman, but then I remembered I’m a grown-ass woman, and I can do what I want" is just perfect.
