I found this postcard in an old book at a Texas Public Libraries sale. The postmark date is unreadable, but the photo caption says it’s the “newly-constructed” Tiffany Tower, which was began construction in 1977 according to Wikipedia. It says:
Having a ‘Ball’ Needless to say, no time to write. 3 am. Tell you all about it – Virginia. Well, exchange crying towels.
I’ve always wondered if she was really having a good time or not.
We found this photo in a book (Sweetheart by Chelsea Cain), which we bought from a yard sale in our neighborhood in the summer of 2012. The date on the bottom of the photo is October ’72, but there’s no other marks or writing to help identify her.
FOUND by Sarah in Winchester Park, Las Vegas, Nevada
There isn’t much subtlety in this note, but there is one phrase that makes me wonder. She says, “…only have 1 man in my life.” Does she mean, I only have one right now and I’m looking for another? Or, does she mean, I don’t have any right now and I want you to be the one?
I bought Nicholas Sparks’ A Walk to Remember at my local library’s bookstore. A beautiful but tragic love story. Inside I found a real love letter written on the first page. After reading it I couldn’t help but wonder what happened them and why would anyone give away such a beautiful letter.
I found this letter in an antique desk I bought at a thrift store a year and a half ago. I am guessing the author is an elderly woman who has lost her independence and freedom and is upset about it. I hope she’s alive and well, but I suspect that her belongings were donated to the thrift store after her passing.
I found this note tucked up in the ceiling light fixture in the entryway of my hotel room. I barely noticed the shadow of the item through the smoky glass and decided to reach my hand up and figure out what it was. This person must have been pretty desperate since it was such a weird and deliberate spot to hide a note to God.
