20 Times People Hit The Jackpot When It Came To Secondhand Finds

20 Times People Hit The Jackpot When It Came To Secondhand Finds

The hunting for secondhand goods has drastically reduced over the past few years. However, people still love thrift shops and all the treasures within. The below list, containing some of the coolest and most interesting secondhand deals, is enough to prove people’s love for thrift stores.

The ‘Thrift Store Hauls’ subreddit is a large online community with a mind-blowing 1.6 million members. Lovers of secondhand things were active in this community since August 2011.

Back in 2011, there were no strong subreddits dedicated to thrifting, and all the existing ones were inactive. Therefore, the founder of r/ThriftStoreHauls wanted to create a place where people can share what they found. According to the founder, moderating the massive community is a ‘fairly simple’ task for him, and it takes up only around 30 minutes a day.

As a piece of advice for those who enjoy thrifting or want to try it out, the moderators of the subreddit explained: “There is always the hope of finding something awesome when out thrifting. Not finding anything can take its toll and take away the fun of going. What I tell people is to go and just enjoy looking at stuff. Bring a friend and have some laughs.” They added that if you’re able to find something awesome while enjoying the process, then it’s a bonus!
