20 Of The Worst Pieces Of Art Found In Charity Shops

Published 3 years ago

If there’s one thing you’ll find in almost every thrift store and charity shop out there, it’s art. Although occasionally you might stumble upon an a painting that would make a great addition to your living room, most of the art you’ll find there is, well, let’s just say “a little odd”. And today we’re all about that oddness.

Inspired by all the weird and hilarious art found in thrift stores, someone started a whole Facebook group dedicated to it. It’s called Terrible Art in Charity Shops, and its 239k+ members regularly share the most bizarre pieces of art they managed to come across, that will leave no doubt why they ended up there in the first place. Check out some of the funniest submissions in the gallery below, and if you want more, make sure to read our previous post here!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
