Lost and Found and the Graveyard are located in the northwest corner of the shop. The Graveyard is marked with chalk on the floor. Lost and Found are two signed shelves on the edge of the Graveyard. The purpose of this area is to:

  • provide the obvious functions of a lost and found
  • provide a location people can place things they would like to give away for scrap, salvage, or reuse.

  • Anyone may remove anything from the graveyard at any time
  • If an item is known to work or be broken, label as such
