People Are Sharing Their ‘Luckiest’ Thrift Store Finds, And It’s Making Us Feel Like We’re Missing Out

Thrift stores are treasure troves for lost or hidden gems. But that’s not all — they also house some truly bizarre items, tucked away between old furniture and dusty books. Courtesy of websites such as Instagram and Bored Panda, we’re about to take a closer look at 40 of the weirdest finds to be shared online. Let the strangeness commence!

40. Loss for words

Are you a person who struggles to keep conversations going on the phone? Well, this book might be just what you need. Let’s hope that author Meg F. Schneider provided some winning lines. Then again, judging by that very ’80s cover, it could be a little out of date. So don’t lead with stuff about shoulder pads and Mr. T!

39. Cheesy message

We’re not sure about you, but we’ve never heard this mantra before. You know what, though? We won’t disagree. The product itself appears to be made from a slice of wooden log. Maybe you could hang it somewhere in your kitchen?

38. Ex-boyfriend line

You’ve all seen cute couple’s shirts before, but how about a fashion line specifically geared towards your exes? Nope, us neither. Mind you, one thrift store harbored on its shelves. The stitching suggests there might’ve been a bit of pent-up frustration getting unleashed here. Feel the anger!

37. Facercise

We can’t even begin to imagine how many books on obscure topics you could find scattered across America’s thrift stores. Too many to count, right? Yet can any of them touch this bad boy for outright strangeness? The tagline by itself is a huge draw. Here’s the big question, though: does it work? We’ll get back to you in a few minutes!
