Default Little gold and some silver

Had to take the to hubs the V.A. this morning for a shot in his back. Did not want to sit in the waiting area so headed back out to the vehicle, decided to cut through parked cars, which I rarely do, and spotted what looked like a mangled pull tab. Stopped looked again and picked it up and low and behold a silver pendant (925). No scratches on it so I am thinking fresh dropped. The other 2 came from a thrift shop just a little ways down the road. Saw the Mexico on the "fish" and the little heart O link was soldered and I have and even smaller one already so I took a chance. It is marked but VERY small. Not a bad day...

That's great! I always have my eyes on the ground in parking lots looking for items people have dropped. It pays off! Great finds.

Thats So COOL! I eyeball parking lots for giggles when I have to be there for some other reason...just like you did! I'm eyeballing for bills along the edges, coins, jewelry, whatnot...I thought I must be crazy, but I guess I'm not alone!

"Ground goodies" are always fun. But in all reality I do feel bad for people that lose stuff. I guess because I'm sure some of it means a great deal to these people and maybe given by a child or husband. But at the same time somebodies gotta find it and why not me. I'm glad I got it before street sweeper came through the parking lot.....
