Yep great finds as long as its not to hot and rancid smell. I find old cloths, shoes, toys, games, you name it ribbon, candles, fabric. etc the list is endless, But this is not all the time, just have to know when and where to look. Most of the items I find I place in small piles according to where i need to take them, goodwill, friends house, or yep my mothers house, she is always creating. Once i found a box full of post cards some dating back to the early 1900's. I took some to the auction house while some I took to my mothers house.
A few weeks after I gave her the cards she created a "Baltimore" theme collage and hung it in the main entry way to her apt. Needless to say many people would stop to look at the old post cards from how Baltimore use to look.
