What's "Bradlees"?

We've had a Rubbermaid trash can in our garage since living here in Franklin.  I don't recall exactly when it was purchased (for $19.99) but it came from Bradlees, which was a discount department store chain that went out of business back in 2000 - 2001.

I don't believe it's has even had trash in it in all these year, unless you consider what I'm about to list as trash...  Rather it's been used to hold "stuff", long stuff, i.e. winter driveway reflectors, hockey sticks, baseball and wiffle ball bats, vegetable stakes, rebar and the like.

It's resided in pretty much every corner and non-corner of the garage at one time or another.  It's big. It's bulky. It's in the way. It takes up too much space and generally a pain in the butt.  Well, good news, in preparing the garage for winter I cleaned the barrel out!  Many items were relocated to the real trash can, others were neatly wrapped and what remains are all now stored in a 5-gallon bucket tucked out of the way.

A win!

Now, what to do with essentially a brandy new trashcan?
