Diamonds Found In Garbage!

Looky what some big dope was giving the heave-ho to! I actually rescued two of these classic 1952 Diamond Chairs by Harry Bertoia from the garbage. I keep one eye on the curb and I 'm always prepared to slam on my breaks.

That is a great find! My family has finally gotten used to my curb shopping. I am known as a champion dumpster diver even though I rarely if ever look in dumpsters (the good stuff is usually setting next to it so that lucky ones like me can find it)

That is a score. I had a real diamond end up in the garbage so your post title made me a little hopeful somehow...

How long does it take to one's family to get used to it?
until one finds such a chair ???

Ooh I love it! How lucky are you! All I find by the side of the road is garbage! Maybe I need to look in different neighborhoods!

Wow! Good eyes. Whiplash is well worth it to rescue stuff like this!
This summer we found a brand new Weber grill on the side of the road...turns out the nut under the "On" switch was just loose...they threw it out! :)

Well you must be feeling better to have had your peepers peeled for a find like that? Now whatever will you do with them? They are awesome.
