My husband had a hair brush when we were first married, he used no other. Around about the 12th year of our marriage the brush started to fall apart with age. I was searching for a brush to replace it that had the same characteristics without success. Somehow a friend and I got talking about hair and the story of this brush came up in the conversation. I described the brush to her and she said she thought she might have the exact same brush at her home that wasn’t being used. She checked and amazingly she was correct it was the exact same brush in almost new condition and she generously gave it to me for my husband. He is still using it to this day.
She was pleased to declutter the brush from her home because it wasn’t and had hardly ever been used and my husband was more than pleased to receive it.
It proves the old saying ~ One man’s trash is another mans treasure. So never underestimate how much something you don’t use could be useful and appreciated by someone else.
