The Huntress

The tram slows the drive until it comes to a standstill. The gliding doors open and people enter the waggons while others leave. Simultaneously with the sound of the departing tram she stretches the arm after the door handle. The door opens with a slight resistance. Meanwhile she turns off the road and enters a different world the tram almost reaches its next stop. The doorway closes with a loud bang behind her as she nods to the employee which stands behind the sales counter. She is not the first time here. And even today she is here to hunt. But she is not alone. A handful of like-minded people are already present. Following her instincts she picks up the track. On silent feet she roams the familiar terrain. She knows each corner. Nothing escapes her. And today her patience pays off. With bristling neck hair she stacks the treasure. And takes possession of it. Some competitors are watching attentive but remain at a respectful distance. They know when to admit defeat. After successful negotiations with the former owner she leaves the house to catch the next tram right at the station in front of the thrift store.

    Dear Susannah, I guess you know this kind of feeling very well from your car boot sales?
    By the way my findings from the described visit are the two chairs and the table.
    I can tell I’ve been looking, what do I write, I’ve been hoping for such a long time for this design.
    And then what happens.. I find them all at the same time.
    It really makes a huge different in our kitchen. It feels more comfortable than before.
