I know you all love to see all the treasures we find in the trash, so here are some recent finds.
1. A 1970s Barbie Dream House. Currently selling on E-bay for around $200. For those keeping track this is the second really nice dollhouse we have rescued from the trash.
2. A nice solid wood dresser in great shape. There was a matching one that I tried to snag the next morning, but the trash man had already come. I’m hoping someone else saved it from the dump before the trash man got it. Greta’s clothes were seriously overflowing from her drawers and so we put this in her closet to store more clothes! This is our THIRD solid wood dresser that we have picked up.
3. This weekend we were trying to figure out a better solution for our coat/shoe closet and were talking how we needed to build some shelves, but wood is so expensive. This morning during our treasure hunt, I found this bookcase/shelf thing and it fits nearly perfectly in the closet. Again solid wood. I don’t stop for plywood, manufactured, or composite junk. Score!
If anyone local is in need of anything, let me know, I’ll be on the lookout. We have gotten a few other things lately, but nothing else that great.
And for those that are new around here, here are some other treasures we have found.
And I can’t believe I haven’t ever posted about our nicest dresser. Let’s see if we can find a picture.
