I have a friend who is masterful at going to resale shops and finding amazing things. While I see piles and piles of some really yucky looking stuff, she zeros in items that are really the best of the best.
While her approach works on clothing, jewelry, and leather goods, it’s even more powerful when looking at people. Each person has something truly incredible, although it can be (REALLY) hidden. The “fun” thing is in locating the gem in each person. When you do, the other person feels valued, you could develop a new friend, and who knows the wonderful things you could create together!
Have a great day,
