When shopping at Value Village, a chain of thrift stores across Canada, shoppers already know that the used items on sale aren’t necessarily in the best condition. But most people probably wouldn’t expect to find the remains of someone’s dinner still attached.
One reader, who asked to remain anonymous, shared a photo of an item he found that he believes should never have been on the shelves. Here are some of the suspicious items she found at a location in Mississauga, Ontario.
While in the home goods aisle, shoppers spotted piles of colorful plastic plates and bowls. This is a familiar sight for those accustomed to shopping at Value His Village. Is it a less common sight? A bowl of someone’s dinner with a crispy crust.
“A set of plastic plates with ‘bonus’ leftover food,” she wrote.
And in case you’re wondering how much dirty plates are selling these days, a quick look at one of the plates reveals that it costs $9.99. It’s really a bargain.
very second hand and expensive flowerpot
Another item that is likely to cause confusion and headaches is terracotta flower pots. It looks like it has been used a lot, and when you look inside you can see a lot of dirt.
But that’s not what’s surprising. Sold by Value Village for $3.99, this pot still has the Dollarama sticker on the bottom, indicating its original price of $3. Paying an extra 99 cents for a dirty planter doesn’t seem like a good deal. we pass.
Another item that caught shoppers’ attention in the homewares section were dirty cups. The beige cup costs $2.99 and looks unremarkable, except for the strands of hair still attached.
If you’re looking for second-hand clothes, there are racks and racks in the store. But as it turns out, this shopper found a cardigan with a large hole near the neckline, so you should be extra careful about checking its condition. The price for damaged items is $9.99.
Other shoppers also found some pretty strange items, from nearly empty candles to piles of egg cartons.
