#1 My Sister And I Were Shopping At Our Local Thrift Store, And I Bought A Bag Of Random Gift Tags In Which I Found This Angel Drawn By My Dear Childhood Friend

One of my best friends in elementary school was a precious girl who had cystic fibrosis. After 7th grade she moved out of state, and I heard the next year that she had passed away. I was heart broken. After she moved, we lost touch and I didn’t get to say good bye. Years later, as an adult, my sister and I were shopping at our local thrift store, and I bought a bag of random gift tags in which I found this angel drawn by my dear childhood friend

It had her name and the city she’d moved to printed on the back. I was stunned and overwhelmed that it found it’s way to me. It will always be my best find

If you care about the planet and if protecting the environment is a priority of yours, you can’t go wrong with shopping secondhand. You’re not only saving Planet Earth, you’re also saving money when you choose to reuse instead of buying new. So if money is tight or you’re saving up for a big purchase, going for secondhand clothes can be one of the ways that you can save quite a bit of cash.

#5 My Weirdly Beautiful Find

#6 I Found My Mug At A Yardsale And The Hat At A Thrift Store On The Same Weekend

What’s more, when you’re reusing something, that means that you’re not buying something that has to be made half a world away and then transported to your local mall. Less waste. Less fuss.

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

There’s also an unexpected benefit of buying secondhand: you form communities based on shared values. After all, you’re literally walking around in someone else’s shoes, you start caring about them and about your other neighbors. It also encourages you to share with others, to recycle, to communicate, to give others that which you yourself might not need but that they really would love to have. In other words, you become an active member of a brand new flourishing community.

#12 This Is My Favorite Yard Sale Find Ever! His Name Is Earl. I Got Him Five Or Six Years Ago At A Hoarders Yard Sale Along With Some Doc Martens And A Lava Lamp

He’d been hanging on my living room wall at my old place for years. That is, until my husband made me take him down because he didn’t think potential buyers would appreciate my dark decorating style. Well, we sold the house and I’d been begging my husband to bring earl home for months, but he was one of the first things to be put into storage, so he was buried pretty deep. Well, he finally made it to our new house today and he’s proudly hanging above the fireplace, where he’ll stay for years to come. To answer some questions, Earl is a thick plastic, he has the artists name engraved on the side, I looked him up once, he’s worth about $200, but I’d never dream of selling him. I do decorate him for parties and holidays, he’s puked streamers, blown up balloons, worn santa hats and bunny ears among other things. I usually try to match him to whatever my headless mannequin (deidre) is wearing. He doesn’t glow in the dark. He does have an Adam’s apple, it just doesn’t protrude very far. He’s always reminded me of Maynard Mames Keanan more than flea though

#26 Something Unique And Technically Second- Hand I Thought This Group Would Enjoy. My Grandmother Made Me This Button Tree Pillow In 2001 (She Passed In 2003)

The letter reads: dear Jennifer, this is a special button tree. The top button on the left is from the army uniform that your great-grandfather (my father, Oscar Anderson) wore while he was fighting in WWI – 1918. The top button on the right is from the navy uniform that your grandfather wore while he was serving aboard the USS Sproston dd 577 (a destroyer) during WWII – 1944-45. The other buttons on the tree are from my mother’s button box. The tiny ones may have been on some of my baby clothes (which makes them real antiques)! In those days you saved the buttons from the clothing you were throwing away. Love, grandma

#100 I Was A Flight Attendant For Primera Air Until The Company Went Bankrupt In October 2018. That Food Trolly Was On My Very Last Flight

Hi guys this is my first post here !

Bit of backstory for this: so I was a flight attendant for Primera air until the company went bankrupt in October 2018. I was heartbroken, I loved my job! (This is gonna be a long post, sorry in advance. TLDR at the buttom)

The last flight I was so insane. We were flying from BLL in Denmark to Chania. We took off not knowing what was in store for us but it was about to be a wild ride. Not long after the seatbelt signs came off we were called to the front of the aircraft where my senior (boss of the cabin) told us we were bankrupt while crying. It was all very emotional but soon there would be no time for crying. (Skip next paragraph if you don’t like mention of blood)

We went back to our stations and suddenly smell something weird. We look out from the galley and see something dark and red on the floor. We knock on the door to the bathroom. An elderly lady was in there, bleeding all over the place. It looked like someone was murdered in there. There was blood everywhere! Sink, mirror, floor, the whole nine. She was talking calmly and explained she had had surgery in her behind and it must have been that.

We called for a doctor  and it turns out he had been there to operate and knew her by name! Told her that she had gotten a letter stating that she wasn’t to travel within two weeks of the operation but she thought it wasn’t to be taken serious. Doc told us he didn’t consider it life threatening per say but that she needed a hospital.

We ended up diverting and got her with an ambulance and called for cleaning.

In the meantime Primera air broke the news on Facebook. Which meant that all the 180-something passengers suddenly found out. We debated if we should turn back to Denmark. But agreed after talking to some of the passengers that we should continue our last flight and finish it.

We got back in the air and gave all drinks and snacks people wanted away. It was very emotional knowing this would be the last time we did that. People were so nice too. All our makeup was ruined, we took turns crying and got so many hugs and well wishes from the passengers. It was lovely really under the circumstances 

We land and the passengers went on their holidays. Then the aircraft got seized and we were told to leave. Luckily our crewing department managed to book us a hotel and air travel home before everything was closed.

Not much sleep were had that night. A lot of red wine and g&t as well as a lot of stories and memories shared.

Flash forward and an old colleague tells me he found this food trolly for sale. That food trolly was on my very last flight. Naturally it had to come home to me  a memory I will forever cherish.

TLDR; this food Trolly was on my very last flight with Primera air and thus I had to have it

#113 I Was A Bit Confused By This Han Solo Cooler/Heater, And What You Are Supposed To Heat/Cool In Such A Tiny Space

For $14.96, I initially passed it up at the salvation army on n clybourn in Chicago, figuring the thing was probably broken anyway. But, lots of people on this site let me know 1) personal mini fridges are actually a “thing” that lots of people have and 2) star wars merch can be highly collectible even if not in perfect working order (or in the words of my fave commenter, “ya done messed up, a-a-ron!”). So I went back and rescued Han Solo, and to my surprise, he works just fine. Thanks for the assist
