Have you been to your local Goodwill? Searching for that 70’s lamp your neighbour’s kids broke? Missing a record from your precious vinyl collection? Don’t mind the wall of musty wind that violates you as you walk through the door – it’s worth it! Thrift stores are a gold mine! Here are the latest finds:

three-legged chair
Searching for that three-legged chair for your doll house, or some cute upholstered furniture for your pet hamster? This appropriately priced piece is just $3 – a buck per leg!
siamese cat photo
All your life you’ve been wanting a cat – but you’re deathly allergic. Your throat swells up when one of these cute little guys walks by. You sneeze uncontrollably when your friend who owns cats lends you their sweater. But lonely nights are getting you down. Solution: get a creepy framed photo of a cat to keep you company! Here kitty kitty…
tall shoes
Are you a size 4 1/2 women’s shoe, and feeling a little short? The thrift store has the solution! Gain almost three inches with these shoes that will bump up your ego – and your height!
Kermit?
Kermit? Is that you? What is it, you ask? It’s a piggy bank! Oh, that’s not what you meant? Um.. I’m pretty sure this is Kermit the Duck! True, it’s already given me nightmares, and I didn’t even buy it. Why don’t you pick it up for your 5-year old nephew and teach him a little about saving? 😉 And get him that Ricky Martin memorabilia too, while you’re at it.
bronze pirate fail
The search for the bronze pirate continues. Ceramic sailors seem to be throwing themselves at me, but I can’t seem to find a bronze pirate. This guy even had a parrot on his shoulder!!! Unfortunately, he was not made of bronze. Another point was lost when I realized he neither had a hook for a hand, nor a wooden peg leg. FAIL.

The fun never ends when you stir up boring days with a trip to your local thrift store. You never know what amazing, and sometimes absolutely bizarre, things you’ll find! Have you wandered into your local thrift store lately?
