So, check out the loot I found while covering a story on Jamestown’s Citywide Cleanup Week.
Some of the garbage people trash, is not really trash at all. Like the Sesame Street potty-training chair. It was still in its original box with original tape and original “certificate for learning fun.” I think we parents can agree, a re-used toilet in the trash of someone you don’t know is NOT worth taking home. But a brand new one + a little Lysol? Perfect-o!
And the rocking chair? With a little love and a coat of primer and paint, I’m sure my little Scrunch will get my money’s worth out of it. Hehe! Now, to entice Kirsti from Living in Lovely LaLa Landto share her crafty wisdoms…
Cleanup week begins today and lasts through Thursday. All the items are intended for the baler, so anything you keep for yourselves saves the city workers’ time (and backs, I would imagine) and precious space in the landfill.
So grab a pal and a pickup and happy salvaging!
