This is largely due to quality acting from most of the cast. The mundane lines seemed generic, and the characters were stereotypical.

When I asked the woman, who owned all of the art books and supplies, she told me they belonged to her very gifted son who was away at college. The more I walked amongst his things, the more I felt I had known him forever. It was the strangest feeling. I fell in love with this young man, never having met him, or even seen him. It was such an intimate feeling.

Even though he was a stranger, his life was laid out before me on display, and I felt him, as though he was there. Not wanting to leave, and feeling at home and at ease among his things, I lingered there for a long time, and finally had to pull myself away. There was also a time when I lived in Connecticut, but my heart wanted to pull me away, to wander to distant places. All the charms were unique and vintage and had been collected over many years.

You can easily get to know a lot about these people by how they kept their home. How they decorated. How they dressed and even the make-up they wore. To me, it feels like a sacred privilege. To know what they cooked their food in and what dishes they used. What food they ate that was left in their pantry.
What movies, books, and music they loved.
What medications they took, and what they kept in their bedroom night tables. Even if they have died.

Even after all the many years of attending these sales. Slowly, I go from room to room, looking at everything left behind.
Imagining who these people were, I ask questions about the history of the items, and that often leads to more information about the people themselves.
