"One man's trash is another man's treasure." so the saying goes, and a truth that is. Many years ago I lived with what I called "Early American Throw-Out"... The couch in my living room was being thrown out on the street, so I made away with it. The same with a chair I used. My kitchen table (still in use) was being unused in someone's basement, and they gave it to me. Kitchen chairs from an old old set of my parents. Small tables found on the street. Just so many things.
