We’ve all heard about garage sales (or yard sales or tag sales, depending on where you might live in the country), and surely we’ve all visited a pawn shop or a thrift store or had something handed down in our family through the years. They’re a cheap way to find something we need that’s new-to-us, and they’re also ways for us to rid ourselves of things we no longer need.
People in NYC have taken this concept to the streets with a practice called “stooping,” where they simply set things out on their stoop with a sign saying it’s free to take – and these 13 pictures of things people are stooping might have you hankering to take a walk through the streets.

This honestly looks nearly new.
You should never trash something without giving someone else the chance at it first, because you just never know!
