all place orders through you??:)
I read an article on the internet about "dumpster-diving." Gone are the days of the "grocery cart Lady" ...I mean, where?s the shame folks! Well, there is none, really. In the Capitol Hill neighborhood of downtown Denver dumpster diving is part of it's thriving sub-culture. You see us every where. Wearing often mismatched and gaudy ensembles with hats kinda like a ragamuffin doll. But you may not think that dumpster diving can be a pretty nice little profit making strategy. You can have garage sales with the good stuff that you find. Or sell them at the Flee Market, You can often pawn VCR?S and TV?S.
The story inspired me to confess that I am a dumpster diver also and to make an exhaustive list of the things that I have found. Here is proof...
Stuff that I found in the dumpster:
Laptop Computer (with no password so I was able to boot it up and sell it for a bag of weed- just kidding! about the weed, that is).
Computer Monitor (it was a real dandy monitor!)
Alarm Clock Radio in perfect condition (antique I would say!)
Back Pack (I?m a back packer! Don?t know how many of those I have found but lets just say that I was always able to carry my goodies in one).
CD?S Techno/Dance/Trance/Garage (were talking about Capitol Hill neighborhood, Capitol of the "Metro sexual" and the Gen x. ok?)
Large Patio Umbrella (for the porch during garage sales)
Books (mostly student curriculum) but hey I could use these!
Clothes (sox, shoes, jeans, shorts, shirts, woman?s cloths (for the garage sale, alright!). The whole ensemble!
Dishes (plates, bowls, saucers, cups, pots, pans, yes cups, you can wash them real good! BONG?S, The whole shabang!)
Money. Yes, money!
VCR?S (I like to pawn those, seriously! I have gotten $35 for VCR?s.
Sony Walkmans (couldn?t count how many!)
Head sets (coming out of my ears. Forgive the pun!)
Cassettes, 8Traks! (the best of Simon and Garfunkle, arrrgh!
Arts and Crafts (paintings, prints, etc.)
Computer Desk (the wood is a little bowed up from getting wet. But that?s ok cause my new glasses warp my eye sight any way so it actually looks straight, until I look real close. I kept this item)
Furniture (chairs, tables, shelves, etc.)
Jewelry (necklace?s, bracelets, rings, etc. hot sellers at the Garage Sale or the Flee Market!).
House Plants (that?s really cruel to abandon your house plants!)
Microwave?s (like new!)
I almost forgot...TV?s
Ceiling Fans, Lamps (garage sale).
And Area Rugs
Tools, (screw drivers ,wrenches, etc.)
God knows what else! I could write volumes!
I hope this has been as helpful to you as it has been for me.
