Oddities, Odds and Ends, and Oddments

While heading into the local grocery store I spotted the following:

Clothing and oddment donation bin.
Clothing and oddment donation bin.
Donate your oddments here, people!
Donate your oddments here, people!

 

This charity donation bin is mostly unremarkable except for the one thing I found odd: you can use it for the donation of oddments.

Oddments?

Huh?

Well, turns out “oddments” is a legitimate term to describe what I think most of us would call “odds and ends.” There is a lot of bizarre verbiage on signage in Oz, that much I’ve discovered.
