North Canton Middle School discovered a dusty red purse stuck behind some lockers last year

People were dying to see the contents of the purse ever since it was first discovered.

At first, the school didn’t know who the purse belonged to but people were eager to find out. Eventually, they figured out it belonged to Patti but, sadly, the woman had passed away back in 2013.

Turns out the purse belonged to a woman named Patti Rumfola who was around 14 years old when she lost it

Looking at the contents of the purse, it looks like a time machine back to the 50s full of various trinkets from the era.

The purse had been lost for over 60 years

Patti had worked as a teacher and had 5 children. She passed away at the age of 71.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
