She was just window shopping when she noticed the thrift store and felt drawn to it; it was calling to her and she had no choice but to open the door and enter the strange little place. When she stepped into the dim and dusty shop she saw it was crowded with everything and anything old; even the man sitting in a rocking chair was very old and pointing to a table in the corner telling her, “What you are looking for is over there”. Amused, after all she wasn’t looking for anything, she went to the table and saw only one dirty and very old thing on it and strangely, it was exactly what she was looking for and she had to have it no matter the cost
At home she started cleaning and polishing, rubbing away years of dirt and grime, laughing at the thought that she paid a dollar twenty-five for this treasure that was now a softly shining deep gold and oh, so beautiful. When it began to glow and shimmer and a shadowy figure came drifting out from the spout she smiled knowing that her three wishes would be granted and life would be an infinite world of wonders.
