This is the first installment of Trash-picked Tuesday featuring an item trash-picked by someone other than me. You see, trash-picking apparently is an inherited trait. My brother Tom has gotten some great stuff over the years, and this is one. We'll feature some more of his finds in a few weeks.
This vintage microphone just has that old-school look about it. That's because that's where it came from: an old school that was going to be demolished. It was from the PA system in the principal's office.
This particular school yielded some other really cool things that just weren't practical to bring home, like a c.1930s autoclave. And wouldn't that have been handy when my kids were babies? All those drooly pacifiers and bottles left out in the car- presto!
But you have to draw the line somewhere. And someone has to be the line leader! Now, everybody line up for recess!
