I biked around last night and saw this trash in front of the “Marketing Waste” building. This time there were more old files in boxes and a big computer monitor laying on top.
It’s a big 24″ flat screen monitor by Dell. It doesn’t turn on, but I’m going to look into trying to fix it. My sister knows a bit about these things so maybe she can help me out. I opened it up and saw a couple of capacitors that look suspect, so replacing those could be the solution.
I found the same model of monitor, which also didn’t turn on, on Ebay and it sold for close to 40$. In working condition it sold for up to 200$. This could be a good opportunity for me to learn some basic repair techniques, which would serve me well in this business I’m in.
Now for more jewelry!
This necklace is marked 750, which means 18k gold.
This necklace is marked as 10k and “M1.” It has two little knots in it that are proving hard to untangle!
These earrings are marked as 10k.
A “Cardinal” brand watch. It’s probably the kind of thing you’d buy at Sears in the 80s.
I little pin emblazoned with the Quebec flag. It was made in Quebec by “Ballou Reg’d”.
This gold-plate chain was made by Monet, a company that’s fairly well-known.
A cool vintage “Sarah Coventry” (marked Sarah Cov) ring. It’s gold plate.
Finally, a little angel pin made by Olit USA. This one’s definitely a bit more modern.
Now I have to figure out what I’ll do with this stuff!
