    <div>Yesterday on my way home from work, I noticed a pile of trash on the side of the road. In it were some chairs, and other assorted stuff...<br><br><br>A couch caught my eye, it was leather... so I stopped and cut a piece out of it and took it home to see if it was good...<br><br>O boy is it ever good! and now i have enough pouches to last forever !<br><br><br>So, my suggestion is to keep your eye on the trash! this is the second couch I have chopped up, the first was not good leather, but this one happened to be the best leather I have come across yet, its light and thin, and very durable! Cant go wrong!!! The owner of the house came out and asked if i was looking for something... yeah, anything of value <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"> also I found 2.45 $ in the couch <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    <div>Shortly after I read this the first time, I found a leather chair in the trash. I jumped on that badboy and skinned it out. I estimate that I salvaged 15 lbs of hide off of it. That included the covers for the front and back cushion covers. Happy Me!</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">
