The Buyer


PHOTO PROMPT © Mary Shipman

Shelia was the Buyer.  With over six decades of experience on her endless shopping spree she could walk into any thrift store and find that one item of value.  She always got what she wanted at the price she wanted.

The items in this shop confused her.  They were old but ordinary.  They could have come from her childhood home.

She stopped, round eyed.  She recognized them.  They were from her childhood home.

With a sudden urge to leave Shelia looked around.  The store stretched endlessly in all directions.

A voice said, “In my shop, all sales are final.”

      Thanks! I have expanded a few of the 100 word/Friday Fictioneer stories out to longer stories. I haven;t thought of doing this one, but it might work.

      If something is too far outside of our experience we can’t wrap our minds around it so, ok, it’s weird, but… Something that is ordinary with just a small difference – that is where it can get under our skin.
