Georgina Jones is convinced she’s “cursed for life” after she opened the “little trinket” she purchased from a charity shop while out on a day trip – she took to Twitter to share what she found
Charity shops are full of bargains and hidden gems, so it’s no surprise that one woman spotted a beautiful ‘little trinket’ when she was out shopping.
Georgina Jones couldn’t help but buy the small porcelain ornament when she spotted the word ‘Goblin’ etched on the front and it made her laugh.
But it wasn’t until she got it home and opened it, that she realised her mistake.
The little ornament, which was hollow on the inside, contained what appeared to be someone’s ashes.
Georgina was stunned and didn’t quite know what to think of the contents of the pot she once loved so much.
Sharing the sobering experience on Twitter, she wrote: “Oh my GOD I just bought this little trinket in a charity shop coz it made me laugh it said goblin on it (there was a merlin too) and I’ve just opened it and there’s f*ckin ASHES INSIDE.
“That’s it I’m cursed for life now aren’t I.”
Georgina’s followers who were both disturbed and in hysterics by her findings, convinced her that she would be haunted by the owners if she didn’t take it back, or at least bury them.
One person said: “OK so you need to make finding out who these ashes belong to your life’s work now…”
Another suggested: “Go back for Merlin and bury them ASAP.”
A third tweeted: “Oh no you’re going to be haunted by that animal, like in Pet Sematary ! maybe you should take it back & explain, it might have been donated by mistake – at least it’ll get the accursed object out of your house.”
However, Georgina revealed that she can’t return it because she doesn’t live near the charity shop, and had only gone in on a whim during a day trip.
Someone else then shared a picture of Merlin, saying: “Right, what do we do now?” to which Georgina said: “OMG we need to reunite them.”
