Major Ta Da Dump Haul and The What's It

Husband got a major haul at our local dump.
This chair is just really dusty it is in great condition.

A great outside bench. Husband even got wood to replace the bad

Is this not the best thing to come out of the dump????
It needs some work but just the drawer runners the finish is beautiful.

Yep a wicker table that will be sold as is.
But the best thing and the only thing I am keeping....

are these small snowshoes! They must of been salesman
samples because they are to small for children. they have a Canadian
imprint on the back.

Ok the what's it, no one guessed the original use
it was a hamper it use to have a canvas liner in it.
Pretty cool reuse of it right???

Now I could use your help this army green bag is full of these
red and white stakes they can stack inside each other to make one long stake.
what can they be used for except a tent?
I hope you enjoyed the dump finds!

Congratulations on a major dump haul. I love, love the chair and the bench is cool too. That should keep hubby busy for a while.

Thanks for sharing your new found treasures with us. I'm always amazed at your neat find from the dump.

Have a great week. Hope that you find more neat treasures.

Awesome dump finds. That chair and the dresser are perfect. Love the teeny snowshoes too. Might not be samples, you know us crazy Canadians! Lol
A hamper? Lol never would have guessed it. Hmmm, the connecting poles......for poking a bear at a safe distance??

Girlfriend what a score!!!I am always amazed at what people put in the dump, what are they thinking. I am curious, could I ask you to look under the chair's seat and see if the name Austin Alden is burned into the wood. It looks very similar to my chairs made by Mr. Alden fifty years ago for my late mother Thank you. I do hope the sun shines soon! Hugs, Julie.

You hit a jackpot for sure. I have the EXACT spindle dresser and it is an antique. My husband picked one up in New Hampshire and we drove it home on top of the car back around 1965 when it was an antique. Great finds
