One Person's Trash...

...is another person's treasure, is what I always say.

Never have I seen a more perfect example of this, until I walked into an Estate sale, about 6 blocks away from my house. In this sale, I found in the basement, an old, black steel desk. One that had a rotting laminate top, and a bum front right leg. This desk had a price tag of $50 taped to its top, with a ziploc bag of cables marked $3 and a clip-on desk lamp marked $10. The very same desk we had put on the curb in front of our house in July. The same desk we put on the curb because we could not even sell it for $2. The same desk we had left cables in the drawer and a clip-on desk lamp attached to its side. The same desk our roommate bought 3 years ago for $5 from a business getting rid of all it's old, dirty office furniture.
