Antique shops...I love them...especially the ones where the antiques are cluttered, un-arranged, packed full.
When I found this single-room shop in a small town in Hungary, I was fascinated by the things it contained...
overpriced broken boxes and bottles from junk piles sharing dust with European treasures and rare finds.
All items were priced with three tags each. I wondered why.
And I wondered what stories each item could tell...
of history or mystery or ordinary life.
On some items the owner had placed great value, far too much.
I wondered if she wanted to keep these treasures for herself.
And there were messages in this little shop.
Eyes from ages past gazed at me and ask:
“Where is your treasure?”
Where is mine? Where is yours?
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”
Matthew 6:21, NIV
I found this little shop in a small town in Hungary when my husband and I were working with an English Club ministry.
