Went to nearby thrift store today and found a Wix 57356 oil filter (fits my 03 Accord and 06 Elantra) in box for $1. Production code date is 09/16/2020.
I occasionally see an oil filter and/or engine air filter there. Bought a Motorcraft FL-1A (fits my 300 inline F 150) in box from same store a while back for $1 as well.
Anyone else ever find oil filter/ engine air filters at your local thrift store?

That's a trip! I've never seen auto parts at the thrift stores. Where in the store do they usually have them? I always go into them looking for records. Occasionally find a diamond in the rough. I've found some worth several hundred dollars for 25 cents (y)

This particular thrift store has a section of misc. stuff ranging from lawn and garden tools, to coffee cans full of nuts/bolts and the like. I see a couple of automotive things in this section on occasion such as brake pads, belts, air/oil filters. I try to stop in there once every couple weeks or so. A while back I bought a used but in good cond. Flo Tool brand 3 gal. oil recycling container for $3. Same item (part# 11849) is $16 at the local Northern Tool store.

At the Habit store I went to they had a shelf with several oil filters on it next to the lovo cabling, but I'm not sure they have a universal layout as I've never been to any other Habitat store, they had a lot of other filters there, but they were all like 20 years old.

Anytime I see oil filters at my local thrift stores they're usually priced the same if not higher than getting one brand new from Walmart.
