Six word story: Second-hand

The writing prompt for this week’s Six word story challenge is SECOND-HAND.

A second-hand or used good is one that is being purchased by or otherwise transferred to a second or later end user. A used good can also simply mean it is no longer in the same condition as it was when transferred to the current owner.

Used goods may be transferred informally between friends and family for free as “hand-me-downs” or they may be sold for a fraction of their original price at garage sales or in church bazaar fundraisers. 

These plates I bought at a second-hand market. Or perhaps they are third-hand. I also love old tin cans and regularly wear second-hand clothes. They have a lot to tell, those used goods. Will you be their voice?

The challenge for you:

Write a story about SECOND-HAND goods in just six words. Let a photo or image inspire you to write a story. Or first write the story, and then make or search for a picture to go with it.

Here’s a Six Word Story by Ernest Hemingway.

Such an impact and unseen images in only six words…

Have fun writing!
