12+ Times People Found Such Great Second-hand Lamps That They Had To Share

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.

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.

One of the co-founders has said that these two findings have stood out in particular—a gigantic chicken lamp and a six-foot-tall artichoke-esque lamp.
