I guess we all pay tuition.  I think my worst so far is spending $90 in alterations on a Lauren Ralph Lauren navy blazer I thrifted (this in itself embarrass' me).  100% chance I'll be schooled again in the future multiple times

What buffalo exchange?
I'll go there and make a mistake and buy them.

Alright 'Lo heads. This isn't as obscenely decorated as some of the RL stuff out there, but I figured I'd put it out there in case it's worth anything to any of you fine folks. Size 8 (so maybe for the ladies?). Happy to proxy.

Play a Grateful Dead record in reverse under a backlight and put dreadlocks in your dogs hair. Don't shower for a week and then attend a Phish concert.

Repeat.

So....

What's the most bizarre/disturbing item you've come across at a thrift store?

Here's a sculpture that I came across about a year ago.
Spoilered because it's pretty disturbing (Click to show)

Creepiest find? I've probably had others which I've forgotten, but the most recent that comes to mind was this marionette I found in Chicago while thrifting with @silverwarebandit
