Thrift stores are usually a matter of sifting through a haystack until you find that needle. These people found some really cool, really weird and really fun stuff while doing just that.

This treasure chest that the dad simply could not believe was being thrown away

"My dad drove by this up on the side of the road for trash pick up.

He went and knocked on the door to make sure they were really throwing it out. It’s an OLD sea captain's chest. It was the guy's great-grandmother that she had inherited. It’s awesome."

Yeah that looks totally safe

Started collecting uranium glass about 9 months ago from local thrift stores And Antique Shops

I went a lil crazy with it, but I love it! I found LED black light strips on Amazon and taped them on the bottom of each shelf. I found some black velvet fabric and used 5 thumbtacks and draped it down the back, then cut pieces to fit over each shelf. So no damage to the cabinet at all.

The trash door with a love story

I will always LOVE this door not only because of its beauty but because of its “Why”...My boyfriend called me one afternoon and said he “got me something“ and I was going to love it and that he found it down one of the backroads thrown out to the trash near our 110-year-old farmhouse we had just bought and were restoring. IT WAS THIS DOOR and I loved it “as-is”. He spent hours removing the old paint to restrain it and hung it in the entryway to my walk-in closet I will always LOVE this door not only because of its beauty, because of its “Why”

The kindest little find

Saw this at an estate sale but couldn’t afford It…

Then the next morning when I woke up I saw it sitting on my porch because the woman knew where I lived and there was a note attached to it instructing me to have it for free that she sending it over with love and that she believed it would be in the right home if it was with me… feeling over joyed!

Another little stained glass collectible

Found this beautiful piece at a local estate sale. Probably cost me less than a dollar? Purchase with a stack of things for $10. Has a chain to hang it, but I have a valance that would cover it, which I'm not willing to take down (so much sun!) So it leans against the window above my sink. *scale banana, for scale of course!*

This frankly amazing collection of suitcases that she made into a wall

I’ve collected suitcases all my life. I have found them at thrift stores and garage sales and sitting on the side of the road. I also have had friends donate them to me when they know I collect. My father was in the Air Force and my brother and I were born in Germany and the two burgundy trunks on the bottom row are the steamer trunks that brought us back from Europe to Canada on the steamship. My mother used to share a story how a nun saved me on the ship trying to crawl over the side! I think some may be interested in what I may keep inside. The labels do tell what’s inside of each. I store lots of things in them. I have a knitting suitcase, with yarn and knitting books, etc., I have photograph suitcases, (when we used to have photographs), I have a collection of plastic animals for when my grandchildren come over as well as many other suitcases with toys in them for my grandchildren, material, beads, a sewing/mending suitcase, a suitcase for screws, a suitcase with a drill in it… I could go on and on and on and on. It’s all pretty organized and getting more organized all the time as I sort through and give away lots of things that I don’t need anymore. One of the trunks is a Christmas trunk and one of the trunks stores my patio cushions from my patio furniture and another trunk stores my mother’s dress form and material and patterns for when I’m going to get to those projects.
