I found out about 2 weeks ago that I am in the possession of human ashes.

Why is that strange you might ask?

I have no idea who it is. Strange story but true.

I have a teapot with feet. This is NOT a picture of mine, but it's similar.

Mine is all tan, and there are no shoes painted on, and the top is a little different. It's packed up at the moment, though, hence the similar pic.

I have a table made out of a whiskey barrel by my grandfather. My cousin has a piano seat made out of a whiskey barrel by my grandfather, who was a carpenter by trade.

I like this thread...hmm let's see what strange things I possess.

I have an old American Indian pipe that is pretty neat, it has a brass bowl and a wolf carved on it. It's turn of the century era.

Lol the oddest thing though is probably a toy I found at a yard sale years ago still new in the box from the early 80's. It's a keytar in the shape of a pink SR-71 Blackbird. I have no idea why I own this haha.

While our home is a bit of a carefully curated curiosity cabinet, I'd think that this one is quite strange...we found it at the local fleamarket and paid only 4 EUR for it. A dark and elaborately carved wooden rod topped with a beautifully crafted human skull. We named it Carmen and have NO idea what its purpose is. XD

We live in an area where voodoo isn't a thing, but maybe some traveller brought it back from elsewhere. A friend suggested it may have something to do with the Thule society of Nazi times, but if anyone has a clue, I'd be happy to hear it.

Not so much strange as interesting, but I was digging out an inaccessible area at the rear of 175 year old school which was being converted to houses. 7 feet of dirt/mud with each layer showing the decade, such as mid 90's nokia phones at the top, soda/pop cans from the 1980's below that, then a few more feet of rusted things, until I reached the bottom and found these:

The one on the left is clearly an inkwell from the days of fountain pens, and I'm guessing the other two are the same, but different styles.
All definitely from the 1840's, I just wonder how badly the child who threw them out there got caned.

That's awesome! My property has a old dump and sometimes I dig and find cool bottles too.

Do they have seams, If they don't that could mean they were hand blown.

No seams, and they have a strange 'mother of pearl' sheen to the rather imperfect glass. I think they're pretty cool, if only because they are real local history.
I keep meaning to get around to giving them a proper clean, might go put them in a bleach solution now.

...I'd be digging that dump all the time if I was at your place, I love old stuff!

Can you take a picture of your keytar, that sounds amazing!

I run a home-biz, and have a LOT of weird stuff.
Moon landing newpapers and Time Magazines, lots of Tibetan stuff...

One of the city's best thrift-stores is dangerously close to my bank. I keep finding great stuff in there.
I came across this articulated wooden cobra, and thought, "he needs a basket!"
I looked down and there was one right there. I paid I think $9 for both. A friend noticed auction tags on the basket. I finally found one just like it on Ebay for $250. I super-glued two Indian red rubys on for eyes, and wrapped his blue copper tongue. I glued sharks-teeth on for fangs but they break off all the time.

and this is my Levitron with a UFO a friend made me floating on it.

cool thread, may be back with some more weird stuff...

Very nice! I love thrifting, I used to have some really cool stuff but my ex kept it all.

Gods actually. But in the TV show they were aliens. So yeah, Aliens.

traffic lights. I have no idea why, but we have traffic lights in our shed.

Probably one of the weirdest things I have is a prop skull with engraved runes. When I cosplay as Dresden (from Dresden Files), I use it for "Bob" (character in the books and TV show that is trapped in the skull). I actually had it signed by both the actor who played Dresden in the show (Paul Blackthorne, currently on Arrow), and the author of the books (Jim Butcher)... I still need it signed by James Marsters though (who voices him on the audio books)...

Though, the ranch has plenty of weird stuff, that's for sure.

I guess another one, would be that my wife and I have full suits of studded leather armor, and we display them on mannequins on both sides of our entertainment center in the living room, lol.
