It was spring and people were crowding into a vast auditorium space to shop. No, it wasn't the latest Sunday sale at your local big box chain store. People were combing for just the right item in a sea of stuff. The "stuff" was a vast collection of used and donated items in search of a second lease on life at a mega rummage sale of donated items piled high and wide. My purpose for being there was my mission to record the people and artifacts for a class project.
