  2. patty soriano says:

    Awesome credenza, Karen! I don’t have anyone to drive around, but I sure know how to scan! Show us what you’ll do with the crib parts, please.

  3. Diana says:

    Great finds you are the luckiest person ever on earth! LOL

  4. I can see you taking your tips on a world wide speaking tour! Of course, you would probably miss a few engagements since you’ll be trapped in a dumpster! By the way – jealous of the mid century score!!

      I can see my World Tour now and cities banning me because of the onslaught of their citizens rushing to dive into their dumpsters! PS I knew you would love that mid century piece! Wish I could work on it right now.

  5. Gigi Harlan says:

    So many great finds as usual. Craptastic? I am loving that word. Lol, I can already hear myself using it!

    you lucky, lucky gal. What wonderful finds and I love that mid century piece as well.
    The crib springs also make for a good trellis for vines to grow upon on. Twice as lucky there

  7. I am swooning over that MCM piece! Nice score – can’t wait to see what you will do with it. Thanks, as always, for keeping us thoroughly entertained!

    I’m sure there are blogs like this all over but this is my first and now I’m thinking why the heck have I never thought to google others that might be in the treasure finding business to check out their finds(I now know how my Friday night will be spent).I am always in scanning mode on “garbage” day.All the way to and from school ,to work and back,I often….Okay,okay always make a detour on my way to where ever I may be going if I pass a subdivision on garbage day.The hubby and kid HATES it but on occasion admit how awesome I am when I bring home something cool, like the big bear laying on his back holding a perfectly fine unchipped oval slab of glass with his paws aka a kick arse coffee table .he has yet to move in but he’s awaiting his paint job which is not necessary (he’s white,I live in polar bear is a no go)but he doesn’t fit in”just yet”. Anyway(got a bit carried away)I just wanted to thank you for sharing and the inspiration!
