Midweek writing prompt – junk

Vintage cravats cr Judy DarleyInspired by Lucy Robert’s gorgeous treasure troves, this week’s #writingprompt invites you to consider the old adage of one person’s trash being another hoarder’s treasure.

Vintage bead necklaces

Head to your local flea market or car boot sale and have a good rummage – see what your fingers find. It might be a 1980s Care Bears with chewed paws, or a string of 1960s beads. Whatever it is, think about the person who once owned that item, what it meant to them, and what it might mean to them to rediscover it now.

If you write something prompted by this, please let me know by sending an email to Judy(at)socket creative.com. With your permission, I’d love to share it on SkyLightRain.com.
