i got some good stuff, but its the stuff i didnt buy that really bugs me. im still questioning why i didnt buy a t-shirt that said "what came first, the chicken or the egg" with a picture of an egg and a chicken both in bed smoking cigarettes. not even the biggest pile of shit would wear that to a nascar event

i just copped this beauty from a flea market for 8 bucks.





it goes for 30+ bucks on eBay. I am in no hurry to sell it. The dude that sold it was in the Olympics or some shit i guess. Weird.

kegerator with two CO2 tanks for $200.


also found my dad's school records at a yard sale, I was looking through a filing cabinet in this old couple's garage when I came across them. The lady told me none of it was for sale, but when I told her it was my father's she gladly gave it to me for free. Kinda weird, but he was happy.

found this wizard hat once that looked pretty much like this
they had no idea how it got there so they gave it to me for 25 cents. i also found this slayer shirt from their 1984 tour that i gave to my buddy for his birthday which is now his favorite shirt. kensington market in toronto is pretty much just a neighborhood sized thrift store except there's too many god damn hippies and schizos there and not enough single chain smoking moms like a real thrift store. bummer.

One of my best finds ever - Wu Tang W t shirt with  Cash rules everything around me on the back. A Krew Kiss rip off t shirt with the original riders names on the back, forgot Trainwreck was on of the first dudes.

i got a fixed gear bike, a poloroid camera, a cellar door, a broken social scene album, some fingerpaints, a peacoat, and a gigantic sign that says im a fucking scene piece of shit dye my hair gay colours tattoo and pierce my dickhole shut, also got new kids on the block poster, madonna action figure, power rangers dvdz, guy what else!?!? bill nye pc game?

hahaha!

In England we call them Charity shops, because they are al run by charities like Oxfam, British Heart Foundation, Marie Curie Cancer Care etc and a percentage of what you spend goes directly to those charities.
I spend hours and hours looking through the cassette tapes. Its my favorite hobby after doing stinking frontside rocks. I've also bought some utterly disgusting shirts over the years as well as Roxy Music's first album on mint vinyl, loads of classical music and some ridiculous sci-fi novels. I may have to scan in the front covers of some of the best ones. Some trendy fuck-head will doubtless come over this one called "Zardoz". Oh and I frame all my artwork in the frames of abysmal old shitstain paintings.
From the sound of this thread, the Canadian and American "thrift stores" have a lot more variety than we get over here, although a quick glance around my room reminds me of the foot tall three stick silver plated candelabra I bought this year. Also my girlfriend's got a fucking amazing plant pot shaped like the head of an Asian boy with a turban on. Its twice the size of her own head, porcelain and his face is crudely painted shiny pitch black. Any flowers growing out of that thing look so rad I could cum.

i bought the roxy music album and thought it sucked bad

You know, that's the funny thing about "taste", it doesn't really work if everyone's is the same.

A dozen flannels, all my pants (half of which are women's, since they usually fit and stretch better), a wolf shirt, blue canvas era knockoffs, that's about it.

Seeing as you don't know a thing about me you like to assume a lot.

same... T-Shirt that said, "If The Fetus You Saved Turned Out To Be A Homosexual, Would You Fight For Its Rights?" ($1.50)
And, then there was like a whole box of tie-dye T-Shirts for $0.10 per each one. But, I guess I didn't get any because they were used. I don't really mind getting used stuff like video games and stuff like that, but not clothes. I guess it's because my mom never let me get any tight shit from Goodwill when I was younger.

About 7 years ago I found one of these shirts: http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-MOTLEY-CRUE-1985-TOUR-T-Shirt-concert-tee-80s-S_W0QQitemZ220340786583QQcmdZViewItemQQptZVintage_Unisex_T_Shirts?_trksid=p3286.m20.l1116

Except the one I have is the baseball shirt style.  Sometimes in periods of financial stress I consider selling it.  I think it cost two dollars.  I used to go to Value Village or this church thrift store at least once every week, but I already have too many clothes at this point and lack the patience to sift through all that crap.  Still, lots of good deals to be found at those places, but in my current state of laziness I prefer Ebay.

The thrift stores in my area are all way too picked over..

Garage Sales are where it's at. My kids and I go a few times a month in the spring/summer/fall. I've gotten so much stuff it's crazy. Tools, poster, clothes, vintage leather jackets, toys, skateboards, books, furniture... half the shit I own came form a garage sale. You have to go to the rich suburbs though. Never Pay full price!

Recently I got the old drinking glasses that Burger King used to give away when the original star wars movie came out for $5.

Last time I got:
Brown cowboy hat for $10
Virgin de Guadalupe Blanket Poncho $20
Bootled Slayer "Show No Mercy" MIsfits (Crimson Skull" and Social Distortion (for my gf) t-shirts 3 for $10
The $20 video game controller with like 200 old games
