3 years ago

It’s often believed that to make a good purchase and get a quality product, it’s necessary to spend a significant amount of money. However, people with extremely good luck can find and purchase a luxury item for a tenth of its original price. How is it possible? They’re great thrift store hunters, and they love to share their findings on the Internet.

Bright Side decided to gather some pics from these users whose infinite luck allowed them to acquire very valuable items for a ridiculously low price.

3. “54 cents — one of my best finds ever! They’re real pearl earrings.”

4. “Found a pair of Céline sunglasses for 50 cents. I went back an hour later and found the matching case and cleaning cloth in a different tub for another 50 cents. They were all made in Italy and cost $265 in retail.”

5. “Got this beautiful ’80s shelf FROM THE GARBAGE. It took like, 3 hours to figure out how it went together, but it was so worth it.”

I like that globe but I'm trying to live a more minimal lifestyle, so buying these kind of things that I actually don't need feels like a waste


These are so cute, I wish I had some secondhand store in my town... Guess I could try online shopping
