Private Stash: Frae Scotland

One of the reasons I like thrifting and finding small things is the ability to glimpse into the past. I was cleaning out a bookshelf and found this little pouch I purchased at a flea market ages ago for $0.50.

Why did I purchase it? Who knows. But when I got home there was a little surprise waiting for me.

A set of gift tags from someone named Irene. Apparently these were very important to the little girl who received them and she saved them for over fifty years.

Even the customs declaration from Edinburgh! The weird thing is I found the lady who Irene was sending gifts to from the magic of the internet and she just celebrated her 85th birthday. I love these little reminders of how important people are to each other. Happy Friday everyone!
