I also found this fan on the curb. It inspired a new sidebar for the blog: "Does It Work?". Usually, they do! I took it home and plugged it in and voila! It's not pretty but IT WORKS! I think a little cleaning will go a long way. I think this is my third free fan!
Later I was driving on the highway and found this washboard which I risked life and limp to pick up off the side of the road (ok, not really, but it sounds like good drama)! They're usually around $28 at the flea market. I can't decide if I want to keep this one or sell it. Oh! Just had a vision of it in the basement laundry room I have planned! Guess I'll keep it! How often do you find a vintage washboard on the side of the road? I also picked up about a dozen aluminum cans as I was walking back to the car. Had to restrain myself from walking all the way to the next exit because I could see lots of cans up ahead. But I decided to be a sane person instead!
I wonder what I'll find tomorrow!
