Yesterday’s finds

I got out yesterday, but was feeling a bit under the weather so I didn’t upload them. It was a cold, damp day, and today is no different. I may take a walk later to look for more past St-Denis, but I may also just stick around and get some cleaning done.

These skates look fine. I’m not sure what I’ll do with them, but I’ll probably leave them outside in a box for someone else. 

Image

This chair is pretty nice. The cushion’s a bit dirty, but I think it’ll clean up pretty good. Still, not sure what I’ll do with this either.

Image

I took the duct tape, but left the mask more visible than it was before, so that someone else could take it if they so desired.

Image

I found two pairs of boots and a pair of shoes in a bag. I moved them across the street, and left them out for others to take. I was going to check on them later, but never made it back. I also found two Boris malt alcohol drinks in the place across the street. I probably won’t drink them, but someone will!

Image

I got all this food from a bag on St-Joseph / Esplanade. Got some apple juice, coconut milk (been finding lots of this!), seaweed, dry chickpeas and lentils, some sesame seeds, cocunut, and tapioca. The seaweed expired two years ago, but I doubt it matters (input welcome!). I got found a nice spatula and two mugs. The ledger in the back was from somewhere else. I might use that to keep Settlers of Catan statistics.

A big ol’ Thermos, pretty vintage. It’s in good shape. I’ll give it a good clean and it should be good to go. What’s the best way to clean a thermos?

Image

A nice old McBrine suitcase.

Image

It’s pretty clean on the inside. Overall, in quite good shape. I found the bike pump and laces with the food from earlier.

Image

Got some shoes too! They’re in decent shape, though they look like they probably let in water. They fit me though, and can be my dry-weather shoes. I’ll throw them in the wash and give them a go.

  1. Pretty good haul for somebody who was feeling under the weather. 🙂 Hope you’re feeling better today.

    Here’s a page of tips for cleaning a thermos. http://theboatgalley.com/cleaning-thermos/

    Lots of foodstuffs = good. You’ll eat another week. I’m in favour of that (and dry feet too).
