Every time I walk into a thrift store, I have this excited feeling in the back of my mind like I’m going to find a treasure.
I’m not sure what it would be, or what I’m even HOPING it would be, but the thought just starts to overtake me that maybe this time, I’ll discover something that’s gone overlooked or unappreciated, buried in time, that will open up all new joys for me.
So far nothing quite so lofty has happened, but I have found some stuff I enjoy (mostly old electronics I absolutely do not have room for.)
These folks on Reddit, though? They found some strange treasure troves for sure. Let’s have a look.
10. Bottle of cocaine
“WARNING – May be habit forming.” I’d call that the understatement of the century.
9. An old MP3 player
Believe it or not, something this simple was once a very expensive buy.
8. An old fan
Contrary to popular belief, the Pledge of Allegiance had nothing to do with the formation of the United States. It was adopted in the early 20th century, and “under God” wasn’t added until the Red Scare of the 50’s.
7. Soviet Cigarettes
Smoke up, comrade.
6. Old Sprite
Wait, what were you doing in the ceiling?
5. Original wallpaper
Ok that’s cool as heck. Gonna be a ghost portal, though.
4. Wall mount fridge
Why did these go away?
3. Old vacuum
Man. That thing sucks.
2. Picture perfect
That is STRAIGHT out of an over-written indie flick.
1. Metal social security card
To be fair, that actually meant something for his generation. For us it’s more like a participant trophy.
Cool finds all around!
