Dumpster diving finds and trash picked goodies!

squeakyramone
My boyfriend, best friend, and I have been on a dumpster diving spree as of late. We've mostly been finding clothing and household accessories such as decorations and pots and pans.

Friday night, we found bags upon bags of clothes which was awesome because it is all going to our free market this Saturday. Last night, however, I was astonished at the things that we found:

-a practically new copy machine (instructions and everything!)
-a tiny little portable television
-a small tv
-a perfectly good white plastic high chair
-a waffle iron
-a 5 disc CD player
-more clothes, as usual
-a computer desk chair
-some milk crates
-an easter basket
-some sea shell shower curtain hooks
-a baby hamper
-a tin with puppies on it


There is more- I just really can't remember it all right now.

Our basement is seriously a sea of dumpster finds. All of which we are putting out at the free market on Saturday. We're hoping for a good turnout!

Dumpster diving finds and trash picked goodies!

so (the other) morning i got out of bed at 8 am to go to an estate sale where everything except the furniture was free. it didn't start until 9 and i thought my friend and i were the only crazy people who knew about it but apparently not. there was a huge line of people waiting to take free things. a light snow on the ground, no socks and 20 minutes of waiting in a driveway with a growing crowd of free stuff loving strangers was odd. i wish i would have filmed it. it was like when wedding gowns are like $99 and all the brides to be wait to run in and score a badass dress for cheap. like that but free and things that some old man or woman left behind when they died or went to the nursing home. it was like being at a concert and pushing your way to the stage. anyways, i got some things and i'm going to post pictures of them because i guess this was a highlight of my recent life.

this is like the ultimate walkman from whenever sony made the top of the line walkman. in other words, the original ipod of sorts. the headphones have controls on them.

Super vintage deer statues free from my grandma. I've have always really liked them, my grandpa died and her way of dealing with it was to clean house and give away a bunch of stuff.

Curbside Burlesque Find! [Jul. 14th, 2007|03:44 pm]

While yard sailing today, my boyfriend and I found this pretty cool wall hanging sittin' curbside!
I don't really know much about vintage bar pieces, but I believe its an advertisement for some kind of liquor. It's pretty big, I think I'm gonna stick it at the end of the hallway in my living room. But first, it really needs to get cleaned up.

My clown picture with a new relocated wire for hanging and in its place above my bed (near my picture my daughter did when she was 2) ... I figured since clowns try to kill you while you're sleeping I would just make it easier for the clown.

CREEPY CLOWN ART FOUND IN TRASHCollapse )

It's face is kinda 3-D, it is kind of like a painted blanket stapled to really thick cardboard. Clowns creep me out so we'll see how long this clown guy can keep living with me.
