Guitars strung up on walls, designer pencil skirts, holographic vintage lunchboxes – walking into a thrift store is like entering a mysterious dreamland of intriguing products brimming with unknown possibilities! Thrifting can take you through the decades of American history in fashion, home decor, and much more. In recent years, thrift shopping has become more popular than ever, and we can see why: rather than seeing the same old items that are sold in every store, thrift shopping allows you to find unique, one-of-a-kind items for friendly prices (most of the time). It’s also a lot more environmental to buy second-hand, which must be part of the reason why it’s back in style. If you aren’t convinced, take a look at some of the amusing, strange, and unusual items people came across while thrift shopping online and in-store.
#1: One for Every Occasion
It’s hard to think of an instance where a tiny violin wouldn’t come in handy. Holidays, family gatherings, meetings with the boss. There isn’t a single occasion that couldn’t be made more interesting by whipping out a tiny violin. Make Thanksgiving worth attending this year. Buy it for yourself. You deserve it.
Tiny violins are used jokingly for people who tend to over complain about small stuff – you all know a person like that (and if you don’t, it must be you). This product may be ineffective against those who aren’t self-aware enough to realize they are complaining in the first place.
