Quirkee--Found

Found was started by an aquaintanence of mine and I am just amazed by how big it has become. It really is an interesting concept.




"RMA
FOUND by Kerry Gossage in Washington, DC
I found this Tiffany gift card on a sidewalk outside a strip club."




"I manage some apartments. One night the garbage was overflowing with a plastic bag full of Coke cans. When I opened the bag this "Action List" was inside. Two things strike me as funny. The first is that getting a job is more important than getting off heroin. And second, besides a dozen empty Coke cans there were two empty half gallon jugs of chocolate milk. What happened to number nine?"

Glad you've broken your silence. Found items are very very interesting; and a whole publication devoted to them is amazing.

Personal intentions. We all have those lists either written down or secretly someone floating in our minds. Its like a new yers resolution that never made it past the ink.

Hiya, glad you are back :)
The "Found" was such a sweet idea, but with all the "terrorists and their bombs" running amok, a sweet gesture may freak some people out.
Still, it's so sweet!

many tines, the things that are found , are precious. But the question is, if it was precious, why was it lost?

Madcap said...
