What are some of the greatest Thrift Store Finds you have ever made?

Just wondering what some of you have been able to score at a thrift store... for instance, I found a $300 medela breastpump at the thrift store in perfect condition for $2.02

  • my favorite find is a pair of vintage (1972) bright orange bell bottom pants. they are polyester and stiff as a board but i always felt sooo cool wearing them (they're too small now). i got them for around $2

    i use to find lots of Gap, Old Navy, Hollister, American Eagle, and Billabong stuff for next to nothing at my fav thrift shop of all time, but its up in Alaska, so no more cheap cool clothes for me.

  • Got a Food Saver vacuum sealer machine for $6. New. In box. Never used. They retail for about $50. This was about a year ago. Long ago I got a solid wood coffee table for $15. Broyhill. I've been using it for 17 years.

  • Two almost new looking Calvin Klein jeans for $3.00 a piece. I seriously doubt they were wore twice. I was stoked. Oh and some really cool mirrors for my living room with like frosted calla lilies on them.

  • My favorite find was at a resale shop for the humane society. It's a 50's two-tiered glass end table with brass? legs and etching on the bottom layer of glass. I absolutely LOVE this table. Got it for 20 bucks I think. And I have an old distressed trunk, in great condition, that I got for about 30 bucks that I use for a picture table...I saw this exact trunk on ebay for over 300$.
