Woman finds note with childhood phone number in thrift store nightstand

June 14 (UPI) -- A California woman took to social media to document the strange story of a thrift store night stand and a concealed note that was written by a childhood friend.

Valencia Walker, a San Diego woman who uses the handle @ValenciaVibing on TikTok, posted a video to the site explaining how she purchased a set of second-hand nightstands from a local Goodwill store.


Walker said she found a note hidden in one of the nightstands that appeared to have been written by a child.

The note contained a series of phone numbers, including one listed for "Carly" that Walker, whose sister is named Carly, identified as her own childhood number.

"We have not had a home phone, probably like 10 to 15 years. But what are the chances of that?" Walker said in the video.

Walker said she found the girl's name on another note hidden in the nightstands and a Facebook message confirmed the nightstands had once belonged to the family of a childhood friend.

"My heart's like a little trembly. This is really cool," Walker said.
