As the new year approaches, it’s time to reflect back and look forward to the year ahead. For us, that means reminiscing about all the straight-up weird junk we helped customers get rid of. Here’s a roundup of the top 10 weirdest items we picked up in 2019. We can take anything, weird or not - all you have to do is point!

Top 10 weird junk items of 2019

10. Deer head - Richmond Metro

Oh, deer. We couldn’t stop fawning over this one.

9. Marlin - Cleveland

We can’t put our finger on it, but something about this seems fishy.

8. Giant scorpion - Portland Metro

The owner was bugged by this thing but getting rid of it probably still stung a little.

7. Big chair, little chair - Nashua New Hampshire

It’s chair-ception! Starring a very tiny Leonardo DiCaprio.

6. Vintage baby stroller - Scranton

This vintage stroller would be perfect for a hipster baby.

5. Mannequin heads - Lancaster

We really had to put our heads together to figure this one out.

4. Lipstick carousel - Boulder

Most people just keep their lipstick underneath a pile of receipts at the bottom of their purse, but this is much fancier!

3. Homemade robot - Oakland County

This little guy just needs a vacation. You know, to recharge his batteries.

That feeling when your boss puts you in chair-ge for the day.

1. Tired Santa - Queensland 

Santa is looking a little partied out after the holidays. We can relate! Next time, Santa should try these holiday hacks to help him keep the stress at bay.
