Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A New KInd of Bargaining


--by horse-friend, posted Oct 4, 2019
I happened upon a flea market today and even had enough time to walk through it. Most things did not catch my interest until I saw this coat. I asked for the price, figuring it to be around 35€.

The lady said, "5€,"
to which I replied,  "really!‘ 
She asked if it was too much.
"No, too little," I replied.
I tried it on and even thought it was a tad large, I just loved it and gave her 10€ and said, "I would feel bad giving you less."

Kindspring and small acts of Kindness have changed me. My relationship to money has changed. It felt so good to be able to offer her what I did. Whenever I wear the coat I will remember this and who I've become.
