A post by inkstone
reminds me: so far in the house as we're unpacking we've found a sample vial of Prada men's cologne, and a stripper's business card.
ETA: so what things have YOU found in a place you moved into?
ETA2: Also, also - thinking about inkstone
's post more: have you ever encountered the superstition of putting pennies in closets/windowsills/corners for blessing/luck?
