Need any painting or kitchen supplies? Come on down!

I’m really kinda disgusted by the thought of bringing home kitchenwares that I found in a trashbag on the corner. Or really anything that I’d have to bring inside of my home in order to use properly. Of course, I don’t have the same issue when I see kitchenwares at a yard sale or a second-hand store. But I just can’t get it through my head that crap corner objects could ever be clean enough to use… Maybe that’s why I’m so fascinated by the way the crap corner objects disappear!

Today, we were lucky enough to have a front AND a side drop off. The front is mainly buckets of varying shapes and sizes, with a lawn chair thrown in for good measure. And a handy grocery cart thing.

Most of it is still there as I write this. The chair is gone, as is the ORANGE bucket. So that means that someone went through the trouble of separating the orange bucket from the rest of the pile before they walked away with it. Curious.

Kudos to Niels, who captured this stalker-esque photo of the orange bucket selection as seen through a window screen.

The side is where you find the kitchen crap along with some electronic thing.

Not surprisingly, the thing with the plug did not stay around long. The bags of kitchen crap, however, remain. As I pulled into the driveway, I could clearly see the pots and pans, as well as some plastic cups and goodies in the next bag. I was fascinated enough with looking at the pile that I almost forgot to open the garage as I was pulling in (that would have been bad. . . ). In terms of value, I think that burlap sap thing is going to be sitting there for while… Trust me – I’m NOT adventurous enough to see what’s inside of it. Fabric items left on the street really bother me – even more than kitchen items!
