15+ People Who Are All About Thrifting

You can find almost anything in a thrift store or at a flea market, it can be a dress decorated with fur, a vintage pink coat, or even Victorian earrings. And sometimes, we can come across something really unique, like a 1910 lantern or a 1923 violin. We decided to put together photos of interesting things Internet users found while thrifting. And in the bonus section, you’ll hear a story of a woman who thought she found a scarf she’d dreamed about forever.

“The strangest thing I have ever found in a thrift store. Unmarked gold and woven human hair antique Victorian earrings.”

“It finally happened. I got a stained glass lamp.”

“I picked up a necklace at an estate sale.”

“I found this heavy string of natural pearls in the costume jewelry section.”

“I picked up this antique violin from 1923 at an estate sale today.”

“I found this beauty this morning.”

A 1960s vintage pink coat decorated with fox fur

“My $1 flea market find: the elephant pin is 18K gold and the heart is 14K gold.”

“I just went to an auction and picked up this 1910 lantern.”

“A handmade charm necklace out of vintage charms”

“I picked this up at the flea market this morning. It’s an 80% silver casting of a phonograph record player.”

“It’s most likely made in Europe in the early 1950s. Isn’t it cool?”

“One of my best antique finds of all time! A velvet Elvis!”

“I picked up this ring at an estate sale in a bag of random jewelry and just noticed a 14K stamp.”

“I found a sterling silver and turquoise bolo tie at a flea market.”

“I picked up this domed trunk at an estate sale. It appears to be tin wrapped and hand painted. There is also a photo inside.”

“My first thrift of 2023”

“I found this beauty at a thrift store. But the main thing, it works.”

“Real fur sleeves, heavy satin, and pockets! Anyone know of a ball I can attend?”


  • I found a beautiful polka dot scarf at a thrift store. I’d wanted a scarf like this for a long time.
    So, I wrapped it around my neck and went to look in the mirror. Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed that the sales assistant was looking at me weirdly. It turned out I was trying on a pillowcase. The good thing is I found out it was a pillowcase before I got home.
