Quite a few other people were there picking through the boxes as well. One guy got a whole box of old records. A lady was making multiple trips to her car with decorative items like a nice footed glass vase.
I always wonder why people don't donate things like this, especially when many charities do pick ups if you call. Well, I'm glad I did my part in saving some useful things and reducing the amount of stuff going into the landfills! :)
