A Curb Shopping Spree

We squeezed a curb shopping run in Saturday night before it rained, and I’m really glad that we did. Take a look at our haul:

These two trugs will come in handy when all of our fruit trees start doing their thing. Similar tubtrugs sell for $12.95 each on Gardener’s Supply!

St. Francis of Assisi Statue

My husband gets the credit for spotting this St. Francis of Assisi statue. It has a gorgeous patina, and will be a nice addition to my collection of curb-shopped garden statuary. As soon as it stops raining, I’ll have to find a spot for him.

Paper Lanterns

We’re having a party next weekend, so these paper lanterns will get used right away. There are 12 lanterns in all.

Suet Cage

In the spring, I like to fill Suet cages with scrap yarn for the birds to use in their nests. Now, I have one more that I can fill.

Tomato Cage

It’s interesting to see how many people chuck their tomato cages with their tomato plants. I don’t really get it, but it keeps us from having to buy cages, so I won’t complain.

Storage Crate

I don’t know how many storage crates we’ve rescued from curb piles over the years, but they always come in handy.

Ink Cartridges

Whenever we see a printer in a curb pile, we check for ink cartridges. This weekend we scored a total of eight. We’ll take them to Office Depot or Staples, where we’ll get $2 in rewards for each one. Sure beats sending them to the dump.
