Privilege Pt. 2


Let’s make this a quick one! The people who threw out the Macbook Pro tossed more great stuff last week.

There was lots of sports stuff, including: three quality baseball mitts, two frisbees, an aerobie (basically a frisbee that can easily be thrown the length of a soccer field), a raquet, …

… and a whole bunch of basketballs. None of the basketballs were especially nice, so I left them at the curb for others to find.

I also saved a cool vintage lockbox …

… a torah with a custom made cover;

… a lightly-used Juicy Couture computer bag;

… four pairs of designer glasses (bottom left – Chanel; top left – Oliver Peoples; top right – Christian Dior; bottom right – Lacoste);

… and a small collection of perfumes. I’ve already sold the Tiffany to a reader for 50$. I may keep the small bottle of Woods by Abercrombie & Fitch; I don’t usually do cologne, but I actually enjoy the smell of this one and think it might suit me. Still, it’ll be tempting to sell it given that another bottle just like it sold for 80$.

The perfumes were accompanied by this little glass perfume bottle. It looks to be hand-blown, and is very nice if not particularly valuable.

My best finds were tech, however. One bag held an old iPod and a Garmin GPS. The iPod seems to work, and while I haven’t yet tested the GPS I expect it works fine as well.

My best find though was this working iPad. It was password protected but there’s an easy workaround which also allows you to wipe the whole machine. It’s one of the older models so it’s only worth around 100$, but it’s still a nice get. This is the first time I’ve found an iPad in the trash.
