I found the small bottle, with an embossed Ace of Spades in a large sinkhole in Homestead, FL. The speargun and fly reel were alley finds.
I found the horse conch in Biscayne Bay 22 years ago, and dived down to get it for my girlfriend. Shes been my wife for 21 years. The coral is an alley find.
The cameras have been in my family for decades.

I found this piece of mahogany, along with two much larger ones, in an alley a block from home. They were once seats in an old Whaler-type boat. I left this piece as-is, with screw holes and fittings intact. I combined it with a couple of alley-picked brackets, which I spray painted. It became the perfect platform to display a combination of finds and inherited items
