There’s a group called “Weird Secondhand Finds That Just Need To Be Shared” which is dedicated to sharing the oddities that people spot in thrift shops, flea markets, garage sales, and wherever you go not to spend an arm and a leg on something that functions.
My Greatest Thrift Find Ever. When I Bought It I Only Thought the Dots Would Glow. I Was Shocked When I Turned It on!! Best $10 I Ever Spent. Hope House Foundation Thrift Shop, Norfolk Va
In this post, we are talking about lamps, not just some basic pound store-grade sources of light that emit questionable levels of dimness, but proud secondhand catches that prove the hunter’s mad thrifting skills. From a super fancy Looney Tunes lamp to a honking goose lamp, these are some of the most illuminating finds people have shared in the group.
The group is so active, it has at least 1 post submitted every minute and 2 to 3 posts per minute on busier days, that it’s hard to follow what kind of unusual lamps get submitted among the posts.
