You just don’t get this kind of craftsmanship anymore. Solid brass, iron in the middle, and a couple of goofy tykes that look like they have no idea what a camera is.
The kid on the left has one of the more unfortunate haircuts we’ve seen in a little while, and also needs a boost, while the Shirley-Temple type on the right is looking off at something else. We’re not sure how big this little item is, but from the wood grain and the quality of the light, it doesn’t look like it’s that big.

Snow globes are one of the more common things to find while you're thrifting or hunting. They can take up a lot of space, they're often given as gifts, and they really don't do a darn thing. Yes, you can shake them up and there will be a flurry of “snow” inside, but that's all. This one, however, is a treat.
You barely even need to watch the movie! Three snow globes have the four main characters, the wicked witch, and the great wizard's castle. The one problem is to get one of them flurried, you'd have to pick up the whole thing and shake them all.
Perfect for Kick Drums
It makes perfect sense that there would be a product like this out there somewhere. The Muppets have been around for decades, they have all kinds of gear out there that have their logos and recognizable characters. We can't tell if the shoe in the picture is a pump or a heel, but that doesn't matter that much.
There are plenty of people that would love to wear this kind of color and add this kind of energy to their outfits. They aren't the kind of thing you want to wear to a wedding, but you might be able to get away with it at the Met Gala.
It's a classic tale. A guy buys a dirt-cheap comforter from an overstock store, and inside the package was – what else – a steak knife. Sweet. Now, most people would find such an addition to a comforter worrying, but there's probably no reason to freak out. I mean, why would anybody want to hide a knife in a comforter? We can't think of a good reason. And hey, free knife.
This might be the only example on this list that is something that the buyer did not INTEND to buy, and still got anyway. That sounds the most dangerous.
A Collector's Item
Cheese and onion might not be the flavor that we would reach for if we need some chips to munch on, but somebody out there must really appreciate them. Not only has that person eaten them, but that person has framed three separate packets of the chips.
At least, we're pretty sure that the person ate them. Those bags are empty, aren't they? Would you pay ten pounds for such a display? There might be some people that find Walkers – the British name for Lays – so fine that they want to make sure their collection is complete.
