I had a whole bunch of errands to run today, so I did not take a long look down more than two alleys.
However, here is what I found-

1 A velvet Sofa-

2.two pairs of free sneaks-

3.Free Boots. I am sure theses are related somehow to those fuggly things-

4. A white couch-

5. Some Matresses in case you need a nap-

6. A 70's Area rug-

7.Another Printer-

8.A chair-

9.And lastly another coffee pot and microwave-

The weekend of moving is approaching fast, and I will continue to report from the front lines!

Yesterday I wrote a blog about alley shopping.

Today, and until after the weekend I am going to post (daily) what I find, what I take home, and what I leave behind.

Please feel free to comment if you would have done differently with an item.

Also just leave damn comments and subscribe to my friggin blog. What am I, mildly amusing cow poo?

I write this for

so is it too much to ask for a comment?

OK. Rant over. Sorry.

Tuesday July 28.

On a very short walk I saw

1.An 80-ish Microwave.

2.An Iron maybe 5, 6 years old
3.A stereo receiver

4.A computer monitor approx 17"

5.A mirror I saw on my way to the Dr. that I figured I'd get on the way back, but
BURN, as I turned the corner into the lane, a shopping cart sweetheart was attaching it to her shopping cart.

That's all so far, but I'm going on a walkabout later to take pics, maybe I'll add them to this blog.

Until later then? And did I keep any of it? Would you have?

It's getting close to the end of the month which in my neighbourhood spells treasure hunting!
I'm sure it happens in a lot of cities, but here it's like a tradition.
At the end of the month, when everybody moves, they leave behind the stuff they no longer want or have room for. There's a lot of TV's lately, as people are switching to flatscreens, they no longer want their old tube TVs . The only thing is, some of these tube TVs are less than 5 years old and are in perfect shape.I haven't collected any TVs as my family has dumped off two on me, and I have a flatscreen, so, no need for another TV, but I have found an old steamer trunk that someone had to carry all the way to my place(tyk),a solid wood table with mahogany veneer which I plan to strip and shakerise, along with the solid wood hutch that will get the same treatment-just in another colour. I'm keeping it to primary colours. Reds, Blues, Whites and Blacks.I found a cedar bedsides table and a wooden drying rack.I also found a pine side table. All free. I once saw a gorgeous in perfect shape velvet lounge (ideal for swooning whence fainting from the vapours.)Plus, this is a long weekend I think, so more time to browse.
Wish me Happy Treasure hunting-I need new drawers!!
Not those kind, you pervs.
