175 Of The Best Things People Found In Thrift Stores, Flea Markets And Garage Sales (New Pics)

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, Bored Panda has compiled a list of unusual thrift store finds you’d pretty much have to buy if you found them. Scroll down, enjoy, and upvote your faves.

#6 I See The Occasional Post Where Someone Finds Their Own Art Etc, So I Guess This Is Mine. The First Photo Is Me At A Vintage/Thrift Sale On Sat, Holding A Dress. The Second Is Me, Age 16, Wearing The Exact Same Dress!

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.
