Mila looked over many items on the shelf when she came across the bell collection. Hundreds of unique little bells from all over the world rested side by side. “Grand Ole’ Opry Land”, “Glacier National Park”, “Paris”, “Germany.” The life collection of a woman who was probably deceased. The new owner of her home couldn’t wait to ditch the clutter. Mila could feel the joy of the woman receiving each gift bell from those she loved when she could no longer travel. Once treasured, the dusty collection sat on a shelf in a second-hand store neglected. Mila bought them all.
