With gregortroll's help, we thoroughly scavenged their dumpster.
It was the Best. Scrounge. Ever.
Gorgeous bolts of brocade, heavy raw silk (or something that looks and feels suspiciously like), brilliant velvets. Small pieces. Large pieces. TRIM, for cryin' out loud. Tools & hardware, even. All thrown out, 'cause it got wet.
Today I'm sorting it all for washing. Yay! I love a good scrounge.
