A coral coloured bag has become the subject of much interest after it was delivered to the Saint Vincent de Paul store in Coolamon full of personal belongings, files, and photos.
The items were discovered by worker Anne Hart in March, but attempts to reunite the bag with its owner have since been stalled.
“I took the bag to wash it, and in the pockets I found some very valuable things,” Mrs Hart said.
“Myself and another lady [at the store] were laughing at how many pockets the bag has, how many secrets it could hold and then we found it.”
To ensure the bag is delivered to its rightful home, the Coolamon staff have undertaken to keep its contents safe until the owner can provide an accurate description of the items.
“If it were me, I would be heartbroken to realise I’d given away something so precious,” Mrs Hart said.
“I really wouldn’t want it to go to the wrong person, someone who didn’t value what was inside it.”
Much of the store’s goods are delivered from processing centres in neighbouring cities. It may have begun its journey in Wagga up to nine months ago.
“I really want to just re-unite it soon,” said Mrs Hart.
