Before we moved, our local landfill had a 'trash or treasure' shed and people could drop off stuff that was still good instead of dumping it in the landfill. Man oh man, do I miss that place! We were there almost daily and brought home some great stuff! The best one is the civil war era cabinet covered in chicken poop that absolutely did not fit in the van and I refused to leave the landfill without it, and a kind gentleman overheard me and offered to use his truck to take it to our house! Thanks guy! it looks great in the living room (minus the chicken poop)!

I have some great memories of flea markets and trash picking with my mom, and we still do it...recently I have found some great stuff in the trash, a wicker lamp, a real wood end table - painted white and just starting to show wear (perfect!)and a very old half table someone painted red and with hand painted Pennsylvania Dutch designs...very chipped up, but still cool..and so many more things from the trash if I think about it.

I'd have taken that dresser, even w/ a drawer missing, and would have had someone make me one, or would have made it a shelf, with a few baskets slid in for storage. Always a way!

Pssst. I've hid stuff in the bushes while walking my dog. Don't tell anyone.
