There’s a group called Weird Secondhand Finds That Just Need To Be Shared dedicated to some of the most “wat da heck” oddities found at thrift stores, flea markets, garage sales, and wherever you go not to spend an arm and a leg on something that functions. If you just got here, check out our previous posts with their catches herehere, and here.

But this post is shinin’ bright like a diamond ‘cause we are talking lamps. Not just some basic pound store-grade sources of light that emit questionable levels of dimness, but proud secondhand catches that prove the hunter’s mad thrifting skills.

From a super fancy Looney Tunes lamp to a honking goose lamp, these are some of the most illuminating finds people have shared in the group. In an unlikely match, interior design lovers and secondhand hunters unite, and the result is this miscellaneous compilation below.
