Discoveries in lofts, cupboards, wardrobes etc

Moving into a new property one of the first things you ask yourself is "I wonder what is in the loft?" Hoping to find some hidden treasure that someone has forgotten about, but usually you only find 7" vinyl singles of Bucks Fizz and Shalamar.

 

However I found something interesting the other day. I found a pair of samurai swords, now I am not quite sure what to do with them. I don't know if they are ornamental, breaking the law for having them in my humble obode or if they are valuable or not. Is there any sword experts on here to help me out?

 

So has anyone else made a discovery even if its finding a cool jacket in the wardrobe of the student digs you have moved into.

Never found anything interesting that I could take away but did find my old flat had an attic that had an old sofa work desk and basically looked like it had been used as a mans room by previous occupants. I used it as a store room and occasional area to use when I needed a flat space. Was too warm and stuffy usually to be up there for long long periods of time though.

 

My friends recently bought a house that was repossesd and had been used as a druggie squat for a bit. In the back of a fixed cupboard they found a box of used needles, some bullets and a samurai sword. Sadly the sword was worn out, not ornamental and very sharp. looking as if it was used they handed it all into the police and explained the situation. I also advised as it was prob a dealers hide out to request a sniffer dog gives the place the once over but they havent done which I think is stupid there could be a KG of stuff there.

 

I would see how ask yourself how nice the sword is and if it isnt too great prob best to hand it into the police, if nice looking, not too sharp etc then flog

Nothing that interesting, only 27 (you read that right) different tv cables leading in all directions all over the house. Only 3 tv sockets exist, and connection to the Sky dish istelf had been disconnected.

 

That was a LONG day, not helped by the fact that the socket we'd elected to try did not, itself, have a connected cable at the back. So the first 27 trial and errors were for nothing.

 

I still cannot work out what the hell the previous owner was trying to accomplish with that many cables.

 

When a friend bought his house recently he found stacks of boxes of canned/tinned food in the loft with various expiry dates ranging 2000-2003. Perhaps the previous owner had been a believer in the Y2K doomsday theory?

When we moved into the last flat we lived in, the previous tenants had left the flat in a bit of a state so we set about cleaning the entire place up. Whilst cleaning/tidying on top of the kitchen cupboards we discovered a picture. Now this wasn't just any old picture, this was a picture of a man in a gimp mask fisting a woman. A MAN IN A GIMP MASK FISTING A WOMAN! Needless to say this picture ended up being put in various places in peoples rooms before finding a permanent residence on the fridge.

 

We also found an old bra, a family photo album from a cancer patient who lived in South-East London (the flat was in North-West London) and a jar of 2ps.

I recently cleared out my cupboards and even my wardrobe which hadn't been used, but was full of old clothes. Found many a pair of jeans and t-shirts that I thought I'd lost, that still fit and can't wait to wear again.

 

Apart from my very dodgy collection of CD's (Which included A1 albums of all things, yikes) I found my old Mini Disc player! Remember those? About thirty blank recordable mini discs too. I don't think I ever used it.

 

Also a photo of a girl I used to hang around with and fancy for years when I was about 14. A photo I stole from her room like a mental case.

Old copy of the Sunday Sport with the picture of Linsey Dawn heavily stained.

 

Oh, sorry, I misread the OP. I thought it was things we unearthed in our own lofts.

 

Seriously though when we moved into our uni house we did find a couple of random items, one of which was a pair of knickers. It was sad to throw them away, but I did. When we moved out of the house, two years later.

Ooh.. Other good stuff from our student house. A letter regarding a council-ordered psychiatric evaluation that basically said our landlord's son was mental (and he was in effect our landlord, because our actual landlord was doing some dodgy dealings and would either be in Pakistan, or laying low and pretending to be in Pakistan even though he was actually in Reading).

 

Also, not really something we 'found' but on the matress in my mate Natasha's room was written in big felt tip pen "ALI WANKED HERE".

 

 

Her boyfriend, who lived with us for the first year in our student house but moved out in the second, was a massive tinfoil hatted conspiracy nutbag. Like, properly into it. He had files of his "evidence" and papers. One time he staged a burning of his sensitive documents in garden, which was basically him making a fucking mess burning all his printouts of nonsense internet articles. (You may at this stage have figured out why he didn't live with us in the second year).

 

Anyway.. when he moved out, we found a folder of his 'sensitive documents' under his bed. It was a dossier of clippings of bare ladies. Mostly not from porn, but from normal magazines and newspapers. Collected and stapled together. LOL.

 

 

 

Question for omgmarc re: the gimp masked fister - was this a photo as in, actually a photograph.. or just a clipping from porn or something? If it's the former, that is a brilliant find.
