There were maybe three of them. I’m not sure exactly what they were, but they looked like drawers from a metal desk, minus the desk. They were lying out in front of a Mount Pleasant residence with a sign indicating that they were free for the taking.

I’ve lived in Mount Pleasant for a while, and I’ve benefited from similar acts of largesse by my neighbors—-a stereo, and if memory serves, furniture and some books. And probably some other miscellaneous things. (Hey, who doesn’t like free stuff?) I appreciate the generosity, but I’m not sure how I can use unattached desk drawers (assumming that’s what they were).

But if you’re interested, they might still be there. I think it was the 1700 block of Kilbourne NW.
