Thrift Stores

Daily writing prompt
What’s the oldest things you’re wearing today?

We donate to thrift stores and shop at the same stores. I wonder about the stories. Here are poems from my blogs over the years. Thank you.

warmth on a cold day
sweaters and blankets
from thrift stores

colder weather
time for my favorite coat
from a thrift store

birds in the painting
from the thrift store
forever in flight

cup from a thrift store
on my grandmother’s
straw chest
near the window
fills with light
