Talk about a coincidence.
We sold a small desk yesterday to a couple to use as a homework desk for their young son. They had traveled about 60 miles in the freezing rain from NW Indiana to pick it up. Several hours later I received a phone call from the father. As they were unloading the desk an envelope fell out from behind one of the drawers. My immediate thought was, “He found money in it!
This desk came from an estate in the Chicago area. The envelope was postmarked 1978, from St. Paul, MN, and it contained a photograph. The strangest coincidence was that the letter’s addressee had the same last name as the new owner! The father had no idea that there were any local relatives, since it is not a common name, and using the photograph, he was determined to find the family connection.
An even greater coincidence was that the son’s name, “Noah”, was so similar to the addressee’s name, “Noel”. Now the spirit of a long lost relative watches over this boy as he does his homework!
We expect the unexpected as we liquidate your household contents. By recycling and repurposing normal household items, we coincidentally may help to reconnect lost family members.
