Prompt: The Treasure of an Object

One of our members related the story of having recently discovered and purchased a beautiful handmade shawl at a yard sale. She inquired of the seller to tell her as much about its background as possible so the story of its origin could continue with it. It turned out to have been made in Ecuador and was originally purchased by someone working with an aid group, who bought it from a local woman who had several young children.

Write a story of an object and the connection it has to the owner as it moves through time.
