Somethings: Things are Getting Trashy Part 3

As we were driving home after Easter brunch a few weekends ago, I saw a guy pulling this metal stool out of his trunk and taking it to the tree lawn. "STOP!!!" I yelled to D as we were driving by. "I want that. I want that. I want that!!!" What can I say, I get a little crazy when I see good trash!  Thankfully he stopped (otherwise I would've grabbed the emergency brake). I got out of the car and asked the guy if he was really throwing the stool away and if so, could I have it? He happily approved. Turns out he had just moved his in-laws into assisted living and was slowly throwing out a bunch of their old stuff.


I checked online to see what these sell for. I saw this one for $104.99 on ebay, this one for $125 on Etsy as well as this one for $100 on etsy. Yowzers --to think this almost ended up in a landfill!


 Of course I took a peek to see what else was in his trunk and there were TWO vintage bikes!! I could NOT believe he was throwing them away. I only had room for one, but I am sure the other one got picked up in a heartbeat.


This is a Murray Titan X63. With a flat tire.





Not quite sure what I am going to do with it yet. I'll definitely be giving it one spin around the 'ol block.

  1. You really do have a knack for finding things! Love it.

    And yes, I was one of the swap coordinators. I'm not sure if we will be doing a swap on that level again unless we can find more people to plan it with. But we are working on some smaller scale ones. Let me know if you'd like an invite to one when we do. They're more personal, less digging, and a bit more fun (in my opinion). Anyways, I'm glad you found me!
