I think this is the strangest thing I've ever picked


This truly goes into the weird category. Have no clue what it is, or what it was made for, but each of these (there are 2) are made from combined bits of road junk. This one is mounted to a chair base, and rolls.


Some identifiable parts are the paper towel dispenser, horn and various road sign parts. the one below is even more baffling.


Looks like part of a traffic light, another paper towel dispenser and more road signs.

I'm wondering if this was part of one of those combat robots or even some college kid's idea of art or furniture.

Whatever they are, I just had to pick them up (no easy task).
There are some great junky parts there.


This is one for the books! I just had to share it.

What's the strangest thing you've ever found?

Ha, I like all the parts of the "thing" you picked up - can't wait to see what you do with them! The strangest thing I ever found was at the dump ... when I saw that vintage sled in the dumpster. Use your imagination for the rest of the story, and yes it's now sitting in my dining room, eagerly anticipating being decorated for Christmas.

Hugs,

Have a great weekend.
