Do You Have The Time

 One of my favorite things to buy at the thrift is clocks. Granted, they are not good resellers (at least in my experience) but I can't turn a working clock down. Especially if it has my other favorite item: owls.

Look at that dwerpy owl. At 1.99, it definitely went home with me.


I found this math problems one at the same thrift. Someone was supposed to buy it from FBMP but of course that fell through.


I bought this skeleton clock awhile ago but haven't posted it for sale.


This lights up and makes a waterfall noise. For now, I'm not selling it.


I thought for sure this vintage flower clock would get scooped up quickly. Perhaps because it's local pick up. 


And last but not least, this awesome neon light guitar clock. Someone is supposed to be buying it tomorrow.

When Goodwill Sells You Lemons

 Not going to lie, I kind of wanted to buy this jar with the five lemons. I'm not sure if they were real or fake. I'm thinking fake because why wouldn't GW throw them away if they were real? 


I'm not sure what I would have used it for and in the end, I left it there. Would you have bought it? What would you have done with it? I believe it was $12.99

Unicorn

 I've been pretty blessed this year with finding things I have been looking for. Today, wasn't any different. I was scrolling through Facebook Marketplace and spotted my unicorn.


I messaged the seller and it was still available. It was in another city and my husband drove me there. We arrived at an abandoned house and the seller was waiting outside. I followed him into the house and there it stood my unicorn. I was more than happy to hand over two twenties. He had already bubbled wrapped the glass and put them in cardboard.  I had no idea how big these were but luckily it fit in the spot I had for it.

Computer Desk

 I walked over to the thrift store I volunteer at yesterday. They had this ladder desk shelf I wanted but I didn't have a way to get it home. I asked the manager if I could borrow one of the furniture carts. She said yes and I got the shelf home. However, when I went to return the cart, the wheel fell off and rolled into 1st Ave. I got the wheel back and couldn't fix it because the nut for the bolt was gone. I took the cart back and Alice was understanding. I did find the nut on my way back home so it must have fallen off when I was bringing the desk to my house. I returned the nut and hopefully they can get the wheel back on.


I've been searching online for this desk because I'm wondering what the bar on the back is for and if it is missing a shelf. I haven't had any luck. Any ideas? Also, I can't really figure out where my computer should sit. Right now it's on a glass shelf and there is another shelf that pulls out for the keyboard but it doesn't look quite right. What do you think?

Human Floor Lamp

 Last week Wednesday I went to Goodwill and found this lamp that looked like a person. It was pretty cool but someone had cut the cord and the one hand was broken. I left him there.


I was talking to my husband about this lamp and he said he could rewire it. I went back Friday and got him. The cashier told me how they were going to throw it out but she convinced them to cut the cord and sell it, that someone could rewire it. I'm not sure why they cut the cord in the first place but Bill was able to rewire it.


I posted him to Weird Thrift Store Finds on FB and apparently he was sold at Spencer's. I got a lot of name suggestions from the comments but still haven't named him. What name would you choose?

Discord: My Little Pony

 Yesterday, I went to Goodwill and found this weird creature. I didn't know who he was so I posted him to Weird Secondhand Finds that just need to be shared on Facebook. 


He is a villain from My Little Pony. His name is Discord. He causes chaos and can make it rain chocolate milk. Mine is missing his throne and his wings. My son also managed to break one of his horns.

Apparently, he has quite the following as my post got over 3.6K reactions and 1.4K comments.

Oil Rain Lamp

 I found this rain lamp on Facebook Marketplace last night. I asked if it was still available and it was. I have never seen an angel one before. The seller said it belonged to her mother.
