34 Crazy Thrift Store Finds That You'd Pretty Much Have To Buy

Posted: Updated:

Thrift stores can be home to some seriously crazy finds. And that's exactly the reason we love thrifting. You just never know what you might find. Your reaction is often half horror that such a thing exists, and half wonder about how to get it to the register without drawing too much attention.

These are those finds...

1. Crazy Cat Lady Action figure.

Now with Foo-Foo grip!


2. Shoes filled with tiny doll parts.

Shoe designer: "How about we put doll parts IN THE SOLE!"
That person's boss: "I LOVE IT!"


3. Three-man purple floral fleece.

Who said you can't buy friendship in a store?


4. Abraham Lincoln cologne.

Emancipate your inner Lincoln.


5. Diorama photo featuring real cats in real-life human situations.

Found this at the thrift store today

"Fluffy was a straight-A kitty... until he fell in with a bad crowd."


6. Creepy child painting.

Scary Thrift Store Art purchase

When in doubt, parents, always go with the photo portrait.


7. Leslie Nielsen as a naked, pregnant Demi Moore.

Leslie Nielsen would definitely have approved.


8. Doge tee.

Glorious thrift store find.

Probably the quickest purchase-to-donation turnaround we've ever seen. Regret will do that.


9. Jesus showing off his soccer skills.

What I found at the thrift store a couple days ago (OC)

To be fair, there are a lot of soccer players named Jesus.


10. Fancy purple suit.

Because you need to look your best for your next encounter with Batman.


11. The Super Kegel.

oh thrift store....

Looks not-so-gently used...


12. Huge floral tie.

Shameless selfie showing off my greatest thrift store find: this tie.

Potato for scale?


13. Painting of an elegant cat couple.

Meow that's a thrift store find

"Presenting, Nip and Mittens von Yarnballshire."


14. Nicholas Cage School of Acting tee.

Enrollment would be off the charts.


15. "Catflexing." Exercise using your cat.

Like regular workout equipment, except completely uncooperative.


16. Some damn fine artwork.

Wayne White, the artist behind Pee Wees Playhouse, paints text onto thrift store paintings.

While you'd be lucky to find a print of this at a thrift store, that's exactly where artist Wayne White -- the man responsible for this picture -- turned for inspiration. White pioneered a form of art in which he'd get second-hand artwork and add his own flair to them. We're still not really sure what "LSD" has to do with dogs, but hey!


17. Old lady(?) mask.

Thrift store find of the season.

Exists only to scare the wits out of people who are were once your friends.


18. Wooden figurines plus... accessories.

Thrift Store win, I'm gunna pop some tags...

Well, those are... fun.


19. Copy of "Marriage Without B.S."

Funny book I found at a thrift store

We were unaware that Midwest psychiatry was a field of its own.


20. Furry scale.

Thrift Store Gold

You should at least be comfortable while your scale gives you the harsh truth.


21. Figurine of an old lady, uh, sewing up a young boy's pants?

Thrift store find: Granny, don't touch me there!

She looks a little too ho-hum about this.


22. Bowling alley computer.

"Can you believe no one bought this yet?"


23. "Nuke a godless communist gay baby seal for Christ" tee.

Must-buy.


24. Kool-Aid brand sneakers.

OH NOOOOOOOOO!


25. Old troll mask.

Anyone have a bridge that needs looking after?


26. Another elegant cat painting.

Saw this at a local thrift store, so tempting to buy it...

"Presenting, Lord Sprinkles Red Dottington."


27. Animal hoof lamp.

Classy thrift store find

Not what most people think of when you say leg lamp.


28. Obama's Last Day countdown clock.

Saw this gem at my local thrift store yesterday.

Still not made in Kenya.


29. Crazy looking ventriloquist dolls.

In case you're low on nightmare fuel.


30. Giant sneaker.

Let's just make sure it fits. Can you wiggle your toe?


31. All-black last supper painting.

Probably closer to reality than a Jesus who looks like The Dude though, right?


32. Figure of monkey staring surprisingly into a mirror.

Thrift store find of the day

That moment when your human catches you checking yourself out.


33. Cat emerging from banana tee shirt.

I found this gem of a sweater in a thrift store.

Cat performance art. Oh crap, we might have just started that trend.


34. Rocks with faces.

I found these at a local thrift store. They look like the Meme faces

For when you want to show off your garden and give someone a heart attack.


Clarification: This story initially included Wayne White's artwork as an example of a "find" itself. While he may have found the original image for alteration at a thrift store, it's unlikely that his final version ended up there.
