Every spring and fall the town has a garbage pick up for large items. This is the towns chance to get rid of crap that's taking up too much space in attics and basements. My hope is that everyone has been watching the 'Hoarders: Buried Alive' marathon on TLC and fear they too may become a hoarder and decide to just throw everything out.
While I'm not totally blatant about checking out what people are throwing out (slowly drive my creepy van from pile to pile in broad day light), I do keep an eye out for gems. And this year I didn't have to travel far. I was able to get two old dining chairs and a small side table with casters from my street. I will be making Young Street's old crap young again.
