People who know me also know that before they dispose of a window,door, or cabinet, commit a light fixture to the dumpster, or pitch a piece of furniture; they need to check with me first.
It is not unusual to arrive home to find a piece of something on my deck that wasn't there when I left. I have been surprised with a pair of french doors, shutters, 3 matching chairs, an old radio cabinet, and a round oak pedestal table. And all that has been recently.
Here is a little surprise that arrived via my brother. This chandelier had been removed from a house before the tearout process began. It was then stored in a garbage can and placed in a garage. Over time it was buried under other salvaged items and resurfaced recently during a purging of said garage. This is where I enter the picture.
