Sometimes people throw away unimportant things, such as candy wrappers, unimportant trash, or small trinkets. However, something that someone considers useless or junk may be something with truly impressive value. The original owners may not have known they owned something expensive or memorable, like those cards you collect as a kid and cost thousands of dollars years later. Those who were cautious or more informed do not miss these opportunities and take things without a word. Indeed, sometimes it turns out that these discarded things are simply priceless, and their place is not in the trash at all, but in antique stores!
