What do you take?
Anything you find at a thrift store, charity shop, yard sale, boot sale, antique store, flea market, etc is allowed. We selectively accept images from dollar stores and online thrift stores. Online listings from secondhand places are allowed so long as they have personal information censored.
What do you NOT take?
Racist items, photos of people in the thrift store, photos you found elsewhere and did not take yourself, and things we have seen a million times already. Here is our Gallery of Regrettable Refusals, it updates regularly.
Where’s my submission?
We get quite a backlog sometimes so please be patient. We don’t use every submission we get. We simply cannot take everything we get anymore due to volume. Our current wait is about 5-6 days.
What’s with the beet poot?
Beet Poot is our official unofficial mascot. He was just a random submission that the fans really liked. Read his whole story here.
What will be in my Junk Box? Can I get a size chart for the box shirts?
We can’t give the surprise away, but we always promise 3-5 interesting items plus stickers and little stuff like cards. We try to cram as much crap as possible in there within a reasonable weight limit, to keep the shipping price low for you as well. We almost exclusively shop for unisex t-shirts; brand, color and style vary. We do our best to keep items allergen free and as clean as possible for thrifted junk.
Where are you finding all this weird stuff?
This blog is powered by submissions so many of our posts are from all over the world. The Shifty Admin team is based all over the place.
When did you change it from shitty to shifty?
