$30.00 OBO.

Small office /dorm size desk, measures  approx. 43.5L"x 18'
" d x 31"H. Wood, not particle board. Great for small spaces needing a little extra or for a kids room. Have no need for it so it must go. Asking $30.00 / OBO.
Grade-A/B..
Used but in really good condition, all drawers and handles function as they should. Great little piece that often gets overlooked and really not considered.

Where we at ??

 Been awhile for posting and keeping folks up to date. As of Nov.1st we will officially be Floridians and hope to get things rolling with Triple-R. Will be moving the last of family to Florida in October so we shall have less reason or opportunity to travel to Maine. We will still keep that aspect of the business as an option but frequency will most definitely be limited.

Hope to get settled in and get things rolling for Triple-R and meeting and dealing with folks in the area. Thinking about maybe doing a meet & greet, not yet decided if it would be beneficial or not. So as we get through October keep an eye out for updates and news as we move forward.

Great curbside save yesterday. Perfectly good solid coffee table, gave it a wipe down and viola, ready for usage and service. Both drawers are functional and it has an interesting tile looking inlay in the center.

Considering painting the lower half white and leaving the top and drawers there natural colors..?

Anyone know what this piece of d├ęcor furniture is called..?? It was found at a Goodwill and then bequeathed to me. I have not decided if I want to refinish it or leave as is.. More importantly is I want to identify what it is.! I can think of a great many uses for it.

It measures 32 x 10" at the top and tapers down from there. Definitely an accent piece of sorts just don't know what its called..? Anyone.

What is it..? $30.00 as is..

Working a piece.

| Wednesday, June 14, 2023

Finally got some time and started working the piece found a couple weeks ago. The medium sized night stand. Started the rough sand to remove the finish and layer of paint under it. Hopefully will have this one done in a few days, but with these temps the way they are, it might have to wait a bit. Think I lost about three pounds just from sweating doing the top alone.


Some fine wood under there. Minimal dings and one stain to try and remove. Pretty good shape, this one should finish up nicely. Still got a lot of sanding to do though..

Another save today.. nice little 3 drawer night stand, with decorative edge pieces. Needs a sanding and some paint or stain and all is good. Has nice dove tail joinery in the drawers, solidly built. Stay tuned for the after photos.. hard to believe this was headed for a landfill yet again. Apparently it was a yard sale left over and tomorrow is trash day so it was rescued from the curb.












Another great save today!

Where does your discarded items go?

| Thursday, May 25, 2023

EPA began collecting and reporting data on the generation and disposition of waste in the United States more than 35 years ago. The Agency uses this information to measure the success of materials management programs across the country and to characterize the national waste stream. These Facts and Figures are current through calendar year 2018.


Ever consider where we are now in the year 2023, 5 years later. We can all do our part.. Triple-R has taken the challenge to help reduce solid waste by recovering, reclaiming and renewing goods and items that still have a life and should not be added to the waste stream anytime soon.

Sorry for the lag in posts, however we are currently up in the cold.. Yup, we are in Maine and the weather still isn't optimal...lol. We had to make the journey north as we had some personal medical appointments to wrap up during the month of April. Rest assured we are returning at end of month and will pick up where we left off.

Looking forward to getting things up and running, and again picking up where we left off in the process. Still have a few things to set up such as LLC. Getting another vehicle for transports / pick ups etc. and a few other odds and ends. Just need to get through things here and we are on the way.. in the mean time feel free to peruse what is here and over on Facebook. Leave us a comment, suggestion, or questions and we will respond as soon as possible.

 Nice tall, simple bookcase Overall condition was Grade-B, A little clean-up and it blended well in our daughters library. Another piece that was destined for the landfill, with still much use and function. Had I decided to sell this piece I probably would have charged around $25-30.00 for it but alas, my daughter claimed it. 


 





























This was part of a 3 piece credenza, desk combo. Cleaned, refurbished and now hangs in our entryway at the base of the staircase as an organizer for mail, keys, etc. Perfectly good usable piece repurposed, functional and a great addition.
