It appears that it has happened again. More cremated remains showing up at a thrift store. Though sadly, the ashes were not retained this time. From the way it sounds, they ended up in the dust bin. I think that it's interesting that the thrift store put the urn back out on the shelf. I've shopped at this store many times and do have to admit that I've found some good stuff there. Maybe their "what the heck" policy is the reason why:
Ashes found in Anderson Salvation Army
I posted about the cremated remains donated to a thrift store in Michigan recently and it appears that the story had a happy ending. Thanks to Amber Von Felts for letting me know about the updated story. It turns out that those ashes belonged to a lady who passed away in 2004 and that her remains have now been reunited with her family.
In researching this post, I found that it happens quite frequently! Most recently in Virginia, Georgia and Oregon. Thrift stores just get more and more intriguing, don't they?
Until next time,
x's and o's,
Eartha (who has always planned to be cremated but might need to have the "responsibility" talk with her family)
