Thrifts of Terror: Here we go a Wassailing

Please welcome a new feature to the blog, Thrifts of Terror! Of course, I see constantly see whackado stuff at the Thrifts.  All. The. Time. Now every week or so, you get to see them too.

Seen at the Milford Goodwill: Scary Carolers.


Apparently, the flying monkeys from Wizard of Oz enjoy a good carol too.


What's scarier? The sheer amount of these guys on the shelves? Or the fact that they were gone a couple weeks later?


I say both are equally terrifying.

  1. I knew I should have taken a picture of that Neti Pot I saw at the Goodwill in Danbury last week! I love that flying monkey caroler - *shudder*...what I love is that someone once selected these and paid full price.

  3. They are pretty horrifying - I'm thinking 'Child's Play'. Tell me they don't have batteries as well?

  4. Lakota-I don't think there were batteries. I hope there weren't batteries.

    EM-A Neti pot!? Oh that's just plain wrong. I'm all against cluttering up landfills and stuff, but some things just shouldn't be reused for their original purposes.

  5. Love it. The crazy stuff at the thrifts is my favorite part. You KNOW that someone got a bulk deal on those carolers and bought them all! They're in a cherry display case right now with spotlights on them, frozen in silent song

  6. Jeeze Louise...the one holding the sheet music in the top picture creeps me out the most. It reminds me of one of the monks in the film "The Name of the Rose."

  7. Looks like Byers Choice out of PA. Pretty expensive stuff. Roughly $65 to 70 a piece retail.

  8. Anon-Seriously?! (Oh yes, I've Googled, now I see.)
    1. I hope that who ever bought them knew that and got butterflies in their stomach when they saw these. Because...
    2. That is like, thousands of dollars of merchandise right there.
