Last year the year before and even this year.
Where?....now that would be telling...and I can't give away secrets. :)
But in more expensive areas of Sydney.....I will say.
1. A brand new Ikea white country chair.
2. A cut glass vase(nothing wrong with it.)
3. A cane lounge we sold on eBay.
4. A money box with $30 of coins inside, kept that one :)
5. A brand new red rug.
6 .Hardly used kids toys.
7. Brand new child's toy still in box.
8. Brand New electric Tooth brushes unopened.
9. A metal chair that looks wonderful in my fern garden.
10. Iron lace table and chairs,sold them on Ebay.
11. A 1950's chair in great condition, sold once again on Ebay.
12. Very old flower stand, that looks amazing behind ferns in my garden.
There are a lot more, but 12 will do for now.
There are always things left behind at our local dump, BBQs, couches, chairs, all in working condition, but the thing I've found is a full dining table and chair set. Although the chairs didn't last that long, I still have the table and I plan of refinishing it.
I found some nice bar stools for a friend who was looking for them. They were like brand new, left out by neighbours. I also once picked up a glass used as a table top that I use with my kids and let them finger paint on it.
I found an old batik on a stick frame- washed it and re stretched it.
a thousand hours after machining into this creative monster i have an incredible maze of imagination on my wall.
whoever the owner- wouldent recognise it now in all its colour and magical spendour but thankyou for the opportunity. would you like to see it /?

I'm constantly finding things in different areas on my junk mail rounds in different suburbs during the year.
Some of my best include:
A new wooden magazine holder
various sizes plastic garden pots
around 20 plates and bowls last week
A salad bowl with pictures of fruit on it.
A heap of kids books in 2011, which I was able to donate to a school library where I helped at the time
