Quick Writing Prompt: Trash to Treasure

Create a story around an unusual item found in a thrift or antique store—a playful mug, an odd knickknack, a picture frame with a personal photo still inside, a weird devil with angel's wings. Give it a troublesome, but alluring history. Make it haunted or cursed.

Or give a thrift store find positive, magical qualities. A book with a handwritten note inside. A good luck charm. An inspiring piece of art.

Or get your story started with a cheap find that ends up being valuable. Here are some amazing stories of thrift store trash ending up being treasure.
