What is the best thing you’ve ever found in the trash?

Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 31, 2006

“A nice coat rack; nothing wrong with it at all. I don't even think it had any scratches on it.”

“I never have gotten anything out of the trash, but my dad retrieved some plastic storage containers for my new apartment. I made him sift through the trash for them.”

“Two matching metal desks - the old-fashioned, heavy government-issued desks. They're the best. One is my computer desk and one is a sewing table.”

“Probably an acoustic guitar. It was in good condition. I just had to re-string it.”
