I love the look of this box, I found it at the dump and now I use it to hold my Military stuff.

    Good Morning Phatbuddha!
    I have just finished checking out your site and all 39 of your posts. You haave got to have one of the best jobs ever! When I was young, my grandfather worked at a dump here in the U.S. I remember begging to go to work with him all of the time. He was always finding valuable and unusual items. He eventually opened a little store but kept his day job. A large part of his inventory came from the dump! It is amazing some of the stuff people throw out. I still cannot pass a roadside pile of trash without stopping for a "quick" look, lol!! I am definitely going to keep an eye out for your post's. As more people get older and pass away, there next of kin usually clean up and toss out things that do not realize are valuable. Good luck and keep your eyes open! ThriftyGypsy

    Good afternoon ThriftyGypsy :)
    Thanks for your message, it's amazing what people Throw away. You are right at the end of your message,old folk past away and the next Generation some times don't Realise what there have and just sees junk? That's why you will always find goodies at car boots and rubbish dumps.
    I love my job, since the Recession it's been pretty bad and most people are looking more into they loads but when the Country is running right it should be back on track, coz it use to be really good. Luck for me I just Collected all I could find and just Store it. But now it's running slow I've started to go Through my Load.

    Great find and an amazing piece. You have to have a good eye to know what to pick up and what to leave behind -- well done!
