Mine, actually, is our complex garbage area. (I give back as well. LOL) I constantly find things there. My sister put her things in storage and moved here so she didn't have any thing. I stocked her apartment with things left from others moving out. Mostly wicker and such. A trip to the goodwill got the dishes and kitchen necessities. When people have to hurry and they're tired of carrying things they tend to "shed" stuff. I also got quite a few "props" for hubby's photography. The steamer trunk was the best find for that!.
Where do you usually find your treasures?
