Creepy Things from Thrift Stores #2

with 2 comments

I’ve been out and about looking at local thrift stores in my area, and I think that I’ve found some things that are a little creepier than anything that was in my last installment of Creepy Things from Thrift Stores. I hope that you’ve braced yourselves and prepared for what is here. The goods today come from a Thrift Mart that is very close to my apartment… needless to say, there was some pretty interesting things there.

The first item is one that I would call a disproportionate angel statue. While it has a body that looks minuscule, its face and head are large giving it an odd and creepy looking overall appearance. It’s a little disconcerting…

The second item or rather items that I found which were just across the way from the first little gem. They were two doll-like depictions of old men… While this is creepy enough as is, the fact that they look like young boys dressed up as old men makes them all the more creepier… yeah…

The third item probably takes the cake of all of the others. Matter-of-factly, I almost overlooked this item while I was browsing the shelves of this particular store. While I’m usually a fan of painted masks / Mardi Gras masks, this one is quite different from anything that I’ve ever seen. . .it’s a little odd to say the least. I made me feel unsettled a bit to be looking at it.

So there you have it. Another edition of the Creepy Things from Thrift Stores. I hope that you haven’t been too disturbed… and who knows? Maybe someone will take pity upon these items and take them home with them.

  1. HA Those grandpa old men dolls are terrifying. You’ve inspired me to eventually do a similar post. I’ll have to stay on the lookout for creepy thirfted items in Chicago.

    • Yeah, I thought that they were quite creepy. Also, you’d be surprised the amount of creepy / weird / WTF stuff you can find at any one thrift store. That’s what inspired me to do it. 🙂 Thanks for reading!
