We drove up to the unload spot, handed the men our stuff, and began to drive off when over by their dumpster I spied a big old industrial desk. They were throwing it out; Goodwill would not even have it.
I parked my car and went in, “Please, can you ask the manager if I could take or buy that desk out at the dumpster?” Well, now that someone was interested in what was previously going to be trashed, a value had to be placed on it. The sales help came back and wondered about $4.99? You betcha.
While perusing, I also spotted this little gem and couldn’t pass it up. It would make a nice bedside table between two twin beds, or would work for an end table in the living room or family room. It has wheels that lock in place with the lever making for a possible serving cart. Oh, gee, who couldn’t make use of something as versatile as this?
