Bonus

  • My friend bought a bag from a flea market and found an antique locket in its pocket. She thought it was a lucky find, but soon she faced trouble at work. She blamed the locket for her bad luck and threw it into the lake. She hoped that would end her problems, but they only got worse.
    Three weeks later, she learned that a colleague who hated her had fabricated all the trouble at work. The locket had nothing to do with it. She regretted throwing away the beautiful locket.

Unearthing antiques and jewelry in thrift shops is a genuine skill that develops over time. Enthusiastic collectors possess a discerning eye for various curiosities, distinguishing between valuable items and inexpensive trinkets with expertise.
