Look What I Found In The Ally



Now this is not an every day thing for me, but I'd say I find and keep about one nice piece of free furniture every or every other year. I just keep my eyes open while walking the dog and driving around town. And once in a while...it pays off big time.

The other day, I found this gem of a table tossed out by my neighbor's trash in the back ally. Laying on it's side in the rain. I saw it as I left and an hour later when I returned, it was still there. Calling my name. And drying nicely in the sunshine.

This is a terrible photo of it drying with both leaves out. But the table is in excellent condition and looks to date back at least 100 years- possibly even 150 years.

A great condition antique side table.

For FREE.

Keep those peepers open, my thrifty friends! You just never know when you might find a fun little free treasure.
