It was yet another week of stoop diving and we found some treasures. We cleaned up: a huge leather couch, some “vintage” personal computers, an old hot plate and an old Panasonic TV.
The leather couch was the best, most comfy and cozy find. It was a smooth, nut brown in color and in perfect condition. I took a seat and it was worthy of taking home—but my “affordable” one bedroom apartment in Park Slope simply does not have the shear girth to fit this beauty.
A funny find was an old PC, made by Sun, yes that’s right, Sun. Next to it sat a Panasonic TV, that was spat on…yes, spat on.
A safe find was a fire extinguisher—big, red and old.
My favorite find was a vintage silver metal hotplate. It was made by Sunbeam and the handle gave cooking directions for its “controlled heat” steak (420 degrees), sausage (300 degrees), liver (360 degrees), pancakes (380 degrees), bacon (340 degrees) and eggs—fried (300 degrees) and scrambled (320 degrees).
