One man’s trash? Unimpressed shoppers share the craziest items they’ve seen in charity shops
Charity shops can be full of hidden treasures, whether it’s a charming home decor or the perfect vintage dress for your wardrobe.
But for each gem, there is also a singularly rare item that anyone would find it hard to believe would sell.
BoredPanda has compiled a selection of thrift store finds that encapsulate the wacky and bizarre knick-knacks we give away.
A Glasgow buyer came across an experimental mixed-media portrait of the late Princess Diana.
Along with some doll-like blonde hair, the artist also incorporated some real pearl earrings into his haunting portrait.
Lady Diana’s twin! A Glasgow woman stumbled upon this experimental portrait of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
Elsewhere, a Pennsylvania man has captured a bizarre piece of art made from the severed heads of Barbie and Ken.
The doll pair appears to be cradling a baby Barbie while most of her body is submerged in a shimmering golden liquid.
What’s more, the charity shop fan found a “gum saver” on his travels.
The ceramic piece featured a handprint on top, which allows users to place chewed gum in the palm of their hand in case they need to return to it later.
And other eclectic submissions included a ‘Pizza Hut Hits’ record, which featured a bewildering illustration of a gramophone playing a pepperoni pizza.
In keeping with this theme, a second buyer was also delighted to find a 99c CD by an unknown woman called Audrey’s 70th birthday Celebrations.
Meanwhile, another shopper couldn’t resist posting a photo of the haunting cinematic portrait of some cats they found while browsing a local store.
