This sounds like an insane adventure for scraps! I'm not going to lie, some of the items you guys acquired sound pretty neato!! I would totally steal the couch and all sorts of other whacky stuff.

The naked doll part creeps me out. You never what your gonna find through the junk! One man's trash is another man's treasure!!
