COOL JUNK OF THE DAY

Don’t be trashy. Read this blog.

As you might have guessed by now, I love trash. But not just any type of trash. I like to take old things that people don’t want anymore and preserve them.

Every inch of my office — from floor to ceiling — is covered in old signs and decorated with gadgets I have found on the job, whether it was when I was demolishing an old apartment building or simply cleaning up trash around a residential garden.

Every day, I’ll post a photo of something cool that I’ve found, hence “Coolest Find of the Day.” Some items are normal, like clocks or jewelry. Others, though, are a bit more rare, like old war letters from the mid-1900s, kitchen gadgets from 1914  and even pin-up girl posters from the 1960s. Either way, I’ve found some pretty cool stuff. Take a look.

  1. REALLY enjoyed looking through your blog! I’m American, but I live in Sweden, and we have big, public recycling centers here and I’ve told my husband a zillion times I could never work there, the things that people bring in…. ahhh! I’d need a bigger place to house my treasures!

    Thanks for an afternoon of enjoyment!
