Dj that sounds great!!!
I am in the market for old blenders to make a table out of for the juice trailer. We also love the "right " junk at Tillery as we are creating a Steam Punk theme.
Have you been to the Blue Hanger?
Great place to acquire junk sold by the pound.
Also have done my share of scavenging in Dallas.
Great city for it in light of the excessive consumerism and waste that occurs here.
Not sure how Austin works but here there is bulk pick up once a month and me and my other recycling type buddies would go to the high end neighborhoods and find all kinds of perfectly good stuff.
It is especially good right after the holidays.
Denver even has a network where when one of them sees something useful on the curb they send out a message to everyone.

Glad to hear you are proffering from others wastes.
I have always believed in that.
I am amazed by how much waste we create as humans.
Especially food which I am the beneficiary of at certain places in Austin for perfectly good organic produce.
Hats off to ya and anyway I can assist i will.
I do have a garage full of stuff in Dallas that may be something I could donate to your business!
