Thursday was National Thrift Store Day! To commemorate, we visited some of Laramie's thrift stores in search of unique and offbeat items, and have compiled a list of the 5 items that stood out most. Without further ado, here's the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    WYO Bar

    This handmade bar would make a lovely addition to the home of any Pokes fan. It's a bit pricey for a thrift store find, but holds all the necessities for a night in with your friends

    Adult Minion Onesie

    Although Minion Fever has died down considerably since its peak last summer with the "Minions" film, the yellow creatures will always have a devoted fanbase. Laramie-base members of that fanbase can be one step closer to becoming a Minion by picking up the only Minion onesie in town, which looks awfully cozy for the upcoming cold winter nights.

    Homemade Beer Kit

    It's well-known that most Wyomingites like a good beer. What could be better than getting that beer without the minor inconvenience of leaving the house? And with a kit that makes 2 gallons of beer, you'll have plenty to share with your friends!

    Crochet Dress

    Make a splash at your next vintage themed attire party with this velvet/crochet combo dress! Wearing shorts under this dress might be recommended, though.

    VHS Tapes

    Children of the '90s, rejoice! If you still have a VCR (or can track one down) and would like to take a trip down memory lane, VHS tapes are still fairly easy to find in thrift stores and are relatively cheap. Just look at the selection!
