Yeah, this thread could probably be expanded to be about anything cool or odd you found in any store / yard sale / flea market rather than just the dollar store.

I'm totally up for that. I just don't think I can deal with the looks people give me as I photograph their stuff.

Sadly, they would feel prouder about their crap and raise it a dollar.

These are as sour as warheads, and they seem to be about the same price per candy. Plus you get that awesome container.

I don't see the really hot warheads around anymore. I can understand why they got rid of them, but I used to love wasting my pocket money on lollies I wouldn't even finish.

I love those Chinese booths at flea markets that are just a bunch of boxes on the ground to poke through. I collected engrish before it was cool and used to have a ton of it. I've bought breast-shaped stress reliever balls (still have a bunch of them in a box somewhere), Benign Girl everything (funny to us cancer patients), and all sorts of bowls and notebooks that say bizarre shit. I have a set of bowls that say "STRAWBERY, THE SWEET FRUIT IN THE WORLD."

Last time I went, I got a cheapo umbrella hat for my kid (it broke the first time I tried to open it, and even after repairs it's so flimsy I'd never leave it on her for long), some weird washcloths with strange sayings on them (and a label that said DESIGN AND MADE IN US OWN FACTORY IN CHINA).

I also have a big collection of notebooks that usually have Barbie or knockoff cartoon pictures on the cover and are either a bunch of random words or things that must have been taken from greeting(s) cards. On one, Barbie hugs a teddybear as the text reads, "Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives. I am so sorry for your loss". Another has a Paddington Bear ripoff holding a rose with a t-shirt on that says SAMPLE TEXT.

And so on.

I must take photos of these things someday.

As a person who thinks he knows a lot about everything, it's perfectly safe for kids to eat.

I actually just got back from the dollar store today, and found Yu-Gi-Oh cards from the first edition set in Portuguese (not surprised, I live near a city with a large Portuguese population.) .JOGOS DE CARTÃO DE MOTOCICLETAS!
Last year I was in another dollar store with my friend while we were waiting for a pizza, and when we saw a bunch of barnyard kitchen decor, there was a ceramic rooster soap pump.

I'm doubly not surprised; Yu-Gi-Oh originated from Angola.

Dollars stores are so much wackier in the U.K., they sell porn DVDs!

Not necessarily a "dollar store" find, but the local comic shop I frequent sells nearly everything from action figures, Magic to LaserDiscs and Vectrex machines. I've been going for so long that the cashiers will just give me shit for free because the owner buys way too much junk!

Today I bought a mint Ghostbusters 2 RPG for $5 and over thirty uncommon Magic cards. I got 2 DVD's and the original Gran Turismo for free.

Does Family Dollar count?

Best ten bucks I ever spent.
