2 years ago

A sewing machine you can hold in the palm of your hand, a skillet big enough to fry only 1 egg, or an alarm clock so tiny that it can easily get lost in your purse — these are not imaginary artifacts from fairy tales, but the real life things people were lucky enough to find at thrift stores.

A good purchase doesn’t have to be big, and 16 thrift store finds we selected for you here at Bright Side prove it better than words.
