In case you missed it, we recently discussed how people who love thrifting have a talent for making it look easy.

Now, we’re back with even more jaw-dropping finds! But the ones we’re sharing today all come from the same place: Weird Second-Hand Finds on Instagram. This page is dedicated to sharing some of the strangest (and coolest) items people have discovered through thrifting, and we’re excited to show you some of our favorites below!

1. “(Alice) in Wonderland door knob for my new office, acquired recently from a prop maker.”

2. “This is my beloved vintage Pyrex collection! Every single piece has been found at a thrift store, antique store or garage sale (with the exception of my late grandmother’s set in the top right corner)! I’ve been collecting for over 7 years & I’m ashamed to say that this isn’t even all of it.”

3. “Goodwill find for my hubby, who loves clocks. Set me back a whole $3.00.”

4. “A guy at work bought this thinking it was a glove. Neither his wife or niece wanted it so I told him to bring it in. I have had more comments on this purse than anything. Best $5 spent.”

5. “Found this beauty on a walk in my neighborhood in Seattle, WA. A church was doing renovations and was giving away random furniture and supplies.”

6. “I’ve had my sassy green teapot for years, just found his baby at Goodwill yesterday!”

7. “Flying Pig chandelier left in my house when I bought it. It’s always a topic for conversation when people come over.”

8. “I found this fantastic antique Salesman’s Sample chair off of Facebook Marketplace a few months back. I knew what I needed to do. August, my Himalayan, also knew what he needed to do.”

9. “My almost finished thrifted wall of random people. I know no history… these are from random flea markets, thrift stores, antique stores over 2 states.”

10. “The Goodwill in Ottawa, IL had Scooby-Doo outfits on display.”

11. “AMAZING kitchen table and chairs that my parents bought! ‘The Starry Night’ was recreated with melted crayons and then covered in a hard lacquer. Then my parents had a circular piece of glass cut to fit on top. Found at an antique shop in Inverness, FL this week.”

12. “My greatest fb marketplace purchase to date. $300. Do I have enough friends to fill it? No. Do my dogs treat it like a racing track, absolutely.”

13. “And you expect me to believe you wouldn’t buy this awesome tp holder ya rigghttt.”

14. “The best 23 piece dinosaur tea set I’ve ever seen! I can’t wait to be the coolest grandma with these in her china cabinet one day.”

15. “Someone posted their color-coded Fiesta shelves and it inspired me to post my rainbow depression glass shelves. I’ve collected these pieces from various thrift shops, antique stores, and yard sales over the years. Some are true depression glass from the 30s and some are mid-century. It makes me happy every time I look at this bookcase.”

Finding a good steal while thrifting can feel like finding a needle in a haystack – it takes time and effort but, in the end, it’s always worth it! After all, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure!
