My favorite thing to do is browse thrift and flea market treasures. My curiosity is piqued by the excitement of finding lost artifacts.
My goal is to uncover objects that are more than just possessions—artifacts that contain pieces of history.
Randy Guijarro has one of the best stories. He paid $2 for an old photo album that seemed to contain ordinary memories.
However, everything was altered by a single photograph—a unique image of Wild West outlaw Billy the Kid.
It was as though I was holding history itself, this photograph of a legendary figure.
Randy’s $2 investment became an invaluable relic that preserved Billy the Kid’s likeness and helped us feel a link to the past.
His tale serves as a reminder of the treasures to be found in antique markets and secondhand shops.
Randy’s story—which began with a garage sale and ended up in history—is a tribute to curiosity, the allure of the unknown, and the pursuit of personal growth through life’s experiences.
