These stores take discards


SCOT LEHIGH’S rumination on discarded things of worth (“Boston’s trashy treasures,” Op-ed, Feb. 19) left me wondering why he didn’t think of the obvious destinations of these rescued castoffs: Morgan Memorial and Salvation Army thrift stores. There are possibly other outlets. They are already in the business of selling all manner of used goods, including chairs, tables, bookcases, and stereos. And Lehigh’s scavaging crew would be doing the altruistic thing by supporting these well-run nonprofits.
