LETTERS: Keepsake had a good home

Editor:

On Saturday, June 21, a couple driving past my house on Cliff Avenue saw the Persian carpet in my driveway, turned around, put the carpet in their car, and drove off.

Perhaps they thought it was “free to a good home.”

Unfortunately, they were wrong.

I had just had the carpet professionally cleaned and we had laid it out on top of recycle bins, etc, to air out and fully dry in the sunshine before putting it back in our living room.

The carpet has sentimental value, having been left to me by my father. I would really like it back.

If the couple who made this mistake would like to return it, I would be grateful.

In the meantime, a warning to others – in months when garage sales abound and people are spring-cleaning, don’t leave property close to the end of your driveway, lest it be mistaken as free to the general public!

Jane Goundrey, White Rock
