1.) Pig Bike

Second-hand shops are bastions of fantastical and wonderful things! They're the literal embodiment of one man's trash is another man's treasure, and there really is no other feeling like finding a truly unexpected bargain at a thrift shop and feeling on top of the world!

However, sometimes things end up in thrift shops that vary from the downright bizarre to the spine-tinglingly terrifying. Whether it be creepy old dolls, too-hideous-to-be-true clothing or artwork that defies description, all of it has now found a home in the form of the Facebook group 'Weird Second-hand Finds That Just Need To Be Shared', and I've cherrypicked the 20 'greatest' finds for your ease and convenience. And let's kick things off with one of my favorites...

Yep, we're coming out of the gates hot with this guy's sick hog! This is the best thing I've seen on two wheels since... nope, this is literally the best thing I've ever seen on two wheels! It does beg the question though... what genius made it, and more importantly, why?

2.) Van Helsing Called, He Wants His Briefcase Back

Cheryl Newman Verret's find of an apparently genuine antique vampire hunter's kit received around two-thousand shares when she posted the photo in the group and became one of the most popular posts, and I can see why, it's freakin' awesome! It now lives in her foyer, I'm assuming to ward off any twilight fans.

3.) 'Little Miss No Name'

'Little Miss No Name' (and yes that's her genuine name ironically enough!) was produced by the Hasbro company in the mid 1960s. I can only assume this was part of their we-hate-kids-and-adults-now-so-enjoy-your-dreams-of-a-terrible-tomorrow range aimed at giving kids the worst nights sleep of their lives. Seriously, who gave this the green light Hasbro?!

4.) Burn It... Burn It To Ashes And Then Burn The Ashes

(Source: Facebook)

It's actually, from a technical point of view, fairly good! But, can you imagine if say your child painted this and brought it home? 'Oh, yes Timmy it's lovely, we'll put it up on the fridge... is that me and your dad and sister burning in the background... how delightful!' 

On the other hand though, putting that on the fridge would be one hell of a dieting technique!

5.) Lot #94 - The Most Extra Clock In Current Existence

(Source: Facebook)

I mean, if you're gonna make a clock, why not put a golden gilded unicorn on it, and golden roses, and painted flowers on the clock face, and a butterfly. It looks like they forgot they were making a clock and got near the end then thought, 'Oh, damn, I didn't put the clock in it! I'll just jam is in the corner here.'

6.) The Embodiment Of Fear Itself

(Source: Facebook)

What I particularly 'like' about this one is that, not content with making a hell-spawn skeleton spider creature, the sculptor looked at it and thought, 'that needs a tail with the face of a demon.' Although, if you look long enough into it's hypnotic face, the expression on the skull looks like it's having a good laugh... probably at our soul's expense though.

7.) It's Rude To Poop When Someone's Talking To You

Sometimes you've just got to go!

8.) 'Skinny Mans Chair'

(Source: Facebook)

Nothing about this makes sense, I think someone just looked at it and thought, 'you can sit on it, so I guess it's a chair'. But I have 3 questions for this chair:

1) why does it have to be a man's chair #skinnychairscanbewomen'stoo 

2) who on Earth is skinny enough for that?! 

3.) why are the cupholders between the legs, and why are there two?

9.) Rudolph No!

I hope that the baby is too young to realize what's happening on that jumper!

10.) Might Need A Hand Explaining This One

(Source: Facebook)

That is a real human arm, imagine finding that! Apparently, it came from a university and had been used as an old anatomy exhibit! They must have paid an arm and a leg for it!

11.) Breakfast Shoes 

(Source: Facebook)

I always knew that somewhere there would be a pair of shoes which accurately represent the joys of breakfast food, and I'm glad to know that they exist! Now I just need to find a pair for myself!

12.) 'Best $7 I've ever spent'

(Source: Facebook)

I would happily pay $7 just to not be creeped out by that freakin' monstrosity every time I went into my living room! Also, why does it need a belt? If you're gonna have mannequin legs as a lamp then at least buy it some shorts that fit! #rightsformannequinleglamps 

13.) The Worst Shirt Ever

(Source: Facebook)

Now I've seen, and worn, some terrible shirts over my time, and I do not consider myself on the cutting edge of fashion but even I can tell that this is hideous. Or... is it so hideous that it's amazing? I can't make my mind up, let me know whether you'd wear this!

14.) Can You Guess What These Are...?

(Source: Facebook)

Penis Bones! The two ones on the left which are curved are from raccoon penises, and the other straighter one is from a black bear... You. Are. Welcome.

15.) Winnie-The-Pooh Goes The Dentist

(Source: Facebook)

I think the aim was to have it look like he's smiling, but it just looks terrifying. I guess all those sugary honey pots finally caught up with him!

16.) Toilet Clock

(Source: Facebook)

It's a clock, set on a miniature toilet seat with dollars and such stuck into it... why? How did those things come together in someone's brain? 

17.) The Lamp Of Children's Souls

(Source: Facebook)

I thought the idea when making a lamp was it to make it out of something that isn't simply going to melt when it is put near a moderately hot bulb, but apparently, they didn't get that memo at the demon company who made this lamp. It looks like it's made out of old chewing gum and sorrow.

18.) Armakitton

(Source: Facebook)

The kitten of reckoning has spoken, look into its hellish peepers if you dare be judged by it. You can run, you can hide, you can pray, but doom cat knows no mercy, only furr-ious rage. 

19.) I Want This Cup

(Source: Facebook)

After the pig bike, this is the one I want most of all from this list, I can think of a fair few people who I'd be serving tea to in that! 

20.) Yes, Those Are Real Teeth

(Source: Facebook)

Last but by no means least, we have a face made out of adult teeth and the stuff to make denture gums, because apparently, dentists are freakin' psychopaths. This little head apparently has a loop on its back so it can be used as a necklace and it's own little leather case, presumably made out of the skin of its enemies, or the person who's teeth those are.


So those were 20 of the strangest, best, and creepiest things found at second-hand stores! Let me know which one your favorite is, and if you have any weird things found at thrift stores be sure to let me know in the comments! If anything is creepier than the teeth face I'll be impressed! AAx
