Regretfully, many residents and store-owners in my neighbourhood had their basements flooded with last week’s flash floods. Driving around the area, you can see that some people lost everything in their basements — furniture, carpets, art, records, books and photo albums...There are serious pickers out tonight, collecting anything they think they can make a buck on. Me, I found this amazing wicker trunk with black leather strap. The owner was their when I stopped to look at it, and he said it barely got wet; they just didn’t want it anymore. Score! A little cleaning and some paint, and this baby is going to have a whole new life.
