When Susan of SAF Affect saw these beautiful Mid Century Modern chairs, she was willing to plunk down cash to get them. She paid $300 for a set of four, and felt like that was a steal. So imagine Susan's surprise when, just days later, she spotted two more chairs of the exact same design sitting on a curb waiting for the garbage truck.
I love hearing stories about the lengths you go to rescue roadkill--it proves I'm not alone in what I'll do to bring home trash! Eve of Eve of Reduction saw this retro bench sticking out of a dumpster as she rode past on her bike. She came back with her son, and together they carried it on foot for over a mile through their neighborhood. That's dedication.
