Do you remember the thrill of accidentally finding a $5 note on the floor? Or discovering a bargain so good that you just had to go for it? While thrift shopping is a bit different, the feeling of ecstatic joy when stumbling into a jackpot - whether it's a beat-up fiberglass carousel horse or vintage Sue Wong dress (score!) - is one and the same.
Exploring thrift stores, garage sales, and secondhand shops can be an exciting expedition. The feeling of stumbling upon unexpected gems is unmatched. And that's why Americans reportedly host from 6.5 to 9 million garage sales each year. Which only explains why it's inevitable that some curious-looking or downright wild items go from one household to another, giving us the pleasure of gathering the weirdest thrift finds on the internet.
#1 Well The Little Candy Jar I've Been Collecting Little Toys In For My Future Grand Kids Is Finally Full, Had To Move Them To An Actual Candy Dispenser
I thrifted her from the local Goodwill for $50! We've got plenty of time before I get a grand kid (probably 3 years at least lol) I have been picking up little toys here and there that i find a yard sales and thrifts for years, and now we have a cool place to put them!

#2 I Have Wanted A Lenox Spice Village For 3 Or 4 Years Now But The Online Prices Skyrocketed So I Held Hope I'd Stumble Upon A Set At A Thrift Store One Day
But one popped up on my local FB marketplace this week. There was a lady with the set and no listed price so I reached out on the longest shot ever and was like hey I have wanted a spice village forever, by any chance would you be interested in a trade or partial trade for some of my art? TOTALLY expecting to be shot down but to my shock she said yes and we did a *straight trade with no money* and I am still in shock that she agreed and this went down and my dream village is now minneeeee. Other artists will truly get it - sometimes it feels like nobody sees the value in you and what you do. But she was so into all of it and was also so happy I was going to use it and not resell it.

#3 My Friend And I Went Thrifting Today. There Were Hundreds Of Statues. Many For Favorite Teachers, Parents, Siblings But This Was Our Favorite

#4 My Boyfriend Is Notorious For Coming Home With Random Stuff On The Regular
He was on a job site and saw this beat up fiberglass carousel horse just laying in the yard. He asked the home owner what she was doing with it, and needless to say, she had no plans for it, so it came home with us. It's currently residing in our gazebo, but we intend to patch it up, give it a new leg and then put it in our arcade in the basement.

#10 Finally Remembered To Post This Amazing Find From A Community Garage Sale Last Year
It’s a hand blown glass jellyfish lamp by artist Joel Bloomberg. I originally passed it up like a CRAZY PERSON but I went back at the end of the sale and it was still available so it was meant to be!

#11 Large Lifesavers Painting. It Was Nearly As Long As The Loveseat It Was Sitting On
Edit-my fiancé cannot believe I didn’t get it and I’m pretty sad I left it. I’m going to get it tomorrow if someone hasn’t already.
Final edit: I went as soon as they opened this morning. It was purchased at Blue Bird Circle in Houston, TX. Idk about the artist yet, but the frame job was done by Frame City & Art Gallery in Metairie, LA. It’s very heavy and I’m so glad I went back for it.
I also bought the drawing of the cat with its head stuck in a lemon for $5 because I loved it. Picture in the comments.
If I find out more info about either artist, I’ll post it in the comments. Thank y’all for being a terrible influence on my “strict” $20 thrifting budget!

#28 Today Is Trash Day. My Across The Street Neighbor Was Throwing Out A Baker's Racks So I Let My Other Neighbor Know, She Came Over And Picked It Up
On her way driving back home somebody was throwing out a chair. So she picked that up as well. Sent me a picture. I drove over there and 30 minutes later it was in my SUV on its way to my house! I loved it so much she gifted it to me. It is absolutely fabulous. I love it so much. It was missing one button so I just reconfigured. It's a little bit more pink than the color it shows in the pictures.

#29 I Inherited This Weirdly Wonderful Sculpture From A Friend Of Mine
She bought it as a funny Christmas gift for her husband. The artist is a student we both know. I told her that if he ever stopped appreciating it’s uniqueness, I wanted it. Several years ago, we met for lunch, and she presented me with a box. I instantly knew what it was. “A Pear of Manly Legs” is now mine and graces my office with his presence. No banana so a plastic fork for scale

#30 The Wonderful Game Of Oz (C. 1921) Here Is Something Weird And Wonderful: The First Board Game Related To The World Of Oz That Predates The Film By Nearly 20 Years!
It took me over a decade to put a full set together. From my search, I’ve ended up with two different variants. I found the first board (pictured open) at an antique mall around 2008. It was shoved in the back of a display case filled with vintage toys. About 10 years later I found the pewter character tokens inside an Oz trinket box I bought at a festival. Just last year, I snagged the dice, shaker cup, and rules from a fellow collector in a Facebook group. This set originally came boxed. The box is the only piece I’m missing. Shortly before I found the accessories that matched my earlier version of the board, I bought a later variant of the game just to get the rule book. With it I got the wooden colored tokens and the board variant that features the artwork from the box glued onto the back of the board. This particular version of the game was released during the Great Depression. To save money, Parker Bros. did away with the box and simply sold the board with the atwork on the outside and all the other pieces in a paper bag. The rule book for this edition was also printed in black and white instead of color.

#36 It's Taken Me 25 Years To Complete My Collection Of Original Wuzzles From The Early 80's
I'd originally had Butter bear when I was around 5 or 6 but she was lost in a move when I turned 18. Once I found her on a second hand site, I set out to find the rest of them at thrift shops, flea markets, and garage sales alike. The last character I needed showed up on a regular thrift site I'm on about a week ago and I bought him immediately. Today Rhinokey joined Hoppopatmus, Bumblelion, Eleroo, Moosel, and yes, Butterbear. Kind Edit: A lot of people are asking about the rest of the wuzzles like Koalakeet. The six seen here were the original six wuzzles from the 13 episodes that they aired. The show didn't do as well as Disney wanted and was cancelled after its first run. Re-runs aired on various networks, but the rest of the Wuzzles were only added in as plush toys and in the books, not on TV as part of the original series.

#37 I Have Reached The Pinnacle Of Thrift! $2 Lake City Fla
ETA: I got this at the Lighthouse Thrift in Lake City. They are the nicest and very ethical, it's all volunteers and the profit goes to their soup kitchen ?. I'm sure they sold it at that price since they couldn't authenticate it. They knew who she was!! I felt the photo and you can feel a difference in texture where the signature is!! Real or not, I love it and I love Dolly!!! Best of luck to all of you on your thrifting journeys!!! May the kindness of Dolly be with you.

#41 I Thought This Group Would Appreciate This Find From My Parents' Basement
My grandmother was an artist and she painted this for my mum around 1955. On the back she wrote that she had copied the image from an artist I couldn't make out. After a quick Google search, I learned it was an artist named Huldah. I love that my grandma put this kind of effort into a gift for her daughter. I couldn't let her go into the donation pile, so I brought her home and she's going to hang in my daughter's room once we get her reframed. The first picture is my grandma's version of the painting, the second is the original. I know I'm biased, but I like my grandma's version better! ? It's oil paint so the canvas is textured, and the colours are so vibrant it looks like her dress is moving. Hopefully this brightens your day as much as it has mine!

#57 A Weird And Amazing Secondhand Find
My dad passed away when I was 7. He left me most of what he had, but it wasn’t much even still. My favorite part of what he left me was his record collection. I didn’t have a turntable as a kid so I never got to listen to his prized vinyl. Unfortunately, when I was 21, someone stole all of his records from me. My heart was broken. Fast forward 7 years, I finally get a turntable to play vinyl and start building up my own collection. My boyfriend and I go to vintage stock to look for different cards and to scope out the used records sometimes. One day recently we decided to go again. I’m flipping through the records and I see something written on the front of an album cover but it doesn’t click. I literally thought, “surely not.” And I kept moving. 3 flips later, I see another. And clear as day I read it. My dad’s name, Steve Norton. He wrote at least his last name on every record he owned, if not first and last. I immediately burst into tears and ran to find my boyfriend. He helped me search through every record on the shelves. The only two we found were the originals I came across. But now, like I always dreamed as a kid, I get to listen to my dad’s records. What are the odds?

#58 I Have Recently Discovered My Love For Surreal Art, And One Of My Favorites Is Rene Magritte. If You Know His Art, This Lamp Will Feel Familiar. I Feel Like This Hat-Lamp Was Made For Me, Another Customer Pointed It Out To Me After I Complimented The Item She Had In Her Hand. I Was Speechless For A Second And Honestly Couldn’t Believe She Wasn’t Taking It Home For Herself. I Asked If She Was Going To Purchase It And She Said It Didn’t Match Her Asthetic. I Have Never Been So Glad To Not Have One, And For $10 You Best Believe I Couldn’t Get It In The Car Fast Enough. Thrifted In Middle Tennessee

ETA: 1. Our first thought was also DND. My husband DMs a weekly game here at the house. But storing it would be a challenge. 2. It's in Tacoma, WA in the Goodwill on 6th. 3. I think it would have probably just about fit in the front seat of my mini van, so probably not big enough for a cat, but a squirrel could have a blast!

#71 My Grandpa’s Very Close Friend Arthur Passed Away A Couple Of Years Ago, And He Left A Lot Of His Belongings To My Grandpa
One weekend, Grandpa asked if I could pop over to Arthur’s house and help to sort his things, and I found a small box of items that belonged to Arthur’s sister, whom he was extremely close with until she passed away years before. The box had all sorts of gorgeous things in it, and I decided to collect up all of the little round pieces and make them into a piece of art! Most of these small round things were buttons, but there were a handful of other things like badges, pins, coins, and even a mini compass! I loved how it turned out, and even though I had never met Arthur’s sister, I felt honoured to commemorate her in this way ? Sadly, I have no idea where this has gone now as I moved out of my parents’ place and couldn’t find it, but I’m glad I managed to get a photo!

#100 I Found This Old Beat-Up Clock At The Yard Sale For $3.00. Finally Took It To A Clock Master After Few Months And He Said The Clock Is From 1876 (So Almost 150 Years Old)
To restore it and to bring it back to life would be months and months of work and $500 (I am not questioning his honesty he truly loves his job). I am very tempted to do it. EDIT: thank you so much for your suggestions. I will get few second opinions. It is not the price that scares me but the time it takes. He couldn't even say how many months (he said months and months maybe even longer). I do not want to part with it for a year or so. I want it back. If I get the same answer form the others, I will not do it. I will clean it gently and proudly keep as it is.

It’s Made Out Of Fungus, Not Leather, A Bonus For People Who Want A Leather Substitute. Never Thought I Would Be Wearing A Mushroom On My Head Though, Which Makes This Both Weird And Wonderful!

#112 Some People Inherit Jewelry - Others, Ginormous Sofas! In 1958, My Grandparents Moved Into A Beautiful, New Mid-Century Modern Home.

If You Look Under The Table On The Right, You Can Just See One Of The Stools. When The Time Came To Pass It Along, I Was The Only One With A Just-Barely-Large Enough Living Room!
