This Instagram Account Shares All the Weirdest, Most Bizarre, Thrifty Second-Hand Shop Finds

Second-hand shops, or thrift stores as they are often called overseas, always have that one section full of miscellaneous trinkets, tchotchkes, knick-knacks, and other random household decor that they are clearly struggling to shift. Usually heavily discounted and often chuckled at, these items are to no-one’s taste but the original owner’s. Nevertheless, these unusual pieces have been given a new life online with our new favourite social media account: Thrift Store Art.

This incredible Instagram account encourages people to send in all the hilariously bizarre second-hand shop finds that they happen across. Sharing the very best to their channel, the items range from amateur art to rare, niche literature, to assorted apparel that no self-respecting individual would be seen dead in. Ranging from “a bit odd” right through the spectrum to “hilariously weird”, all of these thrift shop finds are absolutely unique and therefore utterly amazing.

Have a look and tell us which one you’d buy!
