Once, while browsing through a long rack of sweaters, I stuck my hand in some gooey snot that was on the shoulder of a sweater. I think someone had one of those nasty sneezes and didn't have tissue handy.

Are you serious?!?<br><br>
I haven't seen anything gross at mine. I am sure they would never sell a plunger like that! Maybe the employees at yours did it as a joke? Maybe it's actually the Goodwill bathroom plunger?

I get a little squicked out by used shoes... especially when you can see the toe imprints in them...

A friend of mine just told me about how her baby didn't like the carrier, and he vomited in it. She was in a hurry to clean up the two of them and totally forgot to wash the carrier. 6 months later, she returned it to the store. 6 months after THAT, she realized she'd never washed the vomit off!<br><br>
I'm guessing that the carrier, still in the box, may have ended up on a thrift store shelf.<br><br>
The thrift stores where I shop all sort the stuff that's donated and toss what's unlikely to sell. I've never come across anything really gross at any of them.

Not at goodwill, but a woman at one of my moms garage sale bought like 8 - 10 used thongs. It was pretty gross, alothough pretty gross of my mom too- who put her old thongs up for sale. She actually said to me " are you sure YOU dont want these- they're victoria secret." Um yea, I can see trying to impress my husband with my new undies- "hey baby, like my hot new underwear, they were my moms!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Polaroid of a middle aged man lying naked on his couch (I was 14) in a book. I also found a Tom Sellec Playgirl at the Salvation Army.

I looked inside a microwave that was pretty skeevy, too. Like I want to see three-year-old pizza goo.<br><br>
I've found The Protocols of The Elders of Zion a long time ago (bought it to get it off the shelf, sort of like hiding the Ezzo books).<br><br>
My dd found VS underwear at her laundramat & gave it to me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> It was clean!

Several years ago I was looking through the lingerie table for Halloween costume pieces (don't ask) and I found a one-piece number and the thong part was STAINED YELLOW!! I yelped and threw it away before calling my friend over to have a peek.

At a yard sale, I was going through a box of kids toys, and I found AN ADULT TOY! I stood up and backed away slowly, completely in shock. Then, I turned and swiftly steered my kids away, and shouted to the woman sitting there holding the garage sale to look through the toys again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

omg rofl that is why i don't have garage sales. that is so something that would've happened to me (i did have a dildo and a bottle of tequila spill out of my luggage on the tarmac once.)<br><br>
come to think of it, my best friend's mom was at our mutual friend's garage sale and had this dildo apron on... (we'd gotten into the wine box.) that was the best garage sale i've ever been to. (her name is jacque, and everytime i write our lovely admin's name i think of her. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">) dildo apron, where art thou?

This happend several years ago....I went to try on a very nice pair of black dress pants. As I was pulling them up I glanced down at the crotch (thank God) and saw dried -ahem- semen/mucous. Blech! I whipped those babies off so fast!! Made me think twice before trying on used clothing. I look each piece over really well now! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
