I’ve seen some pretty dramatic rescues in my day. But this chair that Heather of The Heathered Nest picked up….well, let’s just say this does beat all. Even I would have driven right past this hot mess!
You know you are a hardcore Roadkill Rescuer when you can find a way to get a curbside find home along with your five kids and your own pregnant self! That was the case for Larissa of Prodigal Pieces when she spotted a gorgeous midcentury modern dresser up for grabs on the side of the road.
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.
