I know this might be a touchy subject, since if you have a good thing you don't want it to get all crowded, but can anyone suggest some good dumpstering areas for me to try?  

I got lucky once with one outside a futon shop-- lots of good wood scraps.  I am interested in building supplies, wood, windows... of course fabric, plastic doohickeys and other craft supplies.

Thanks!

There is a dumpster on ummm SE14th just south of clinton. it is the letterman jacket factory and I have found lots of fabric-y stuff there. They keep it unlocked. Sometimes it is gross though.
One person I know found a huge bag of nice black leather scraps there, and made it into a skirt.
