A Yard Sale, an Old Camera, and a Long Passed Relative – Amazing Story

Flickr user emma.buckley

There is no other way to describe this story besides “amazing”. I wasn’t even sure how to categorize this one; is it a sale story for the “Guess What I Paid for This” section? Is it a message from beyond, more appropriate for “Ocean County Paranormal“? Wherever it belongs, I’ll let you decide.

The summary goes like this – a teenager was poking around a local yard sale and saw a vintage Polaroid camera. He paid a buck for it.

This is where the story gets interesting, when he checked out the camera he found a picture in it. Sure, that’s interesting enough, but it turns out that it’s a picture of the 13-year-old’s uncle, who died in a car crash more than 20 years ago.

We’ve all heard the stories of the garage sale doodle bought for a few dollars that turns out to be a Warhol (how come that stuff never happens to us?), but a picture of a long passed relative that you never knew turning up by chance? Wow!

Check out the whole story over at Huffington Post and let us know about your best, or strangest yard sale finds in the comments section!
