Trashy Tuesday, I fell off the Garbage Truck

Le Junque

    I just wanted to say that living in Australia we have a different system to dumpster diving. its called verge pick up and it free. Once or twice a year each suburb gets a free council hard waste collection. My hubby and myself spend most weekend going around to different suburbs to see what good junque we can find. Its so much fun. I coined a name for myself its the Vergen Queen. I do love your finds in your dumpsters too. Sharleen.

    Wow! I don’t lnow where you live but I haven’t come across any of the finds you have. I go around to all the “dumpsters” that I can find, but have been unsuccessful. I guess liveing in Eugene, Oregon everyone keeps all their junk to give to the Goodwill. If you go in there it is totally crowded and the prices are not cheap even when it’s a broken item. Kathy

    Hi, I totally forgot to add……I love your re-do’s. I get a lot of ideas and inspiration from you. You certainly have a way with paint. I bought some cc caldwell’s paint, but I think I should go to a tutorial on the different ways to use the paint and the wax. Again, love your work.

  4. Hi Karen – I have been trying hard not to curbshop recently too – it is painful to drive by a pile of roadside rejects and not stop for a peek. On our way home last night, I noticed that a nearby suburb has their hard rubbish out and I REALLY REALLY want to go back over there this morning for a LITTLE look see 🙂

    AH but you find the best free stuff! 🙂

    Wow, you scored some great pieces! I think I drive too fast…or I need stronger eye glasses. I am usually too late in spotting free curb side furniture.

  7. Make sure your tetanus shot is updated!
