Local woman, Candy Skeeball, has made an earth-shattering discovery at Cash Converters – a vintage Discman that she is positively and undeniably certain was once hers.
Ms Skeeball detailed how the relic from the late ’90s bears a striking resemblance to the one she owned in her youth, including a small scratch on the top left corner, an exact replica of her initials etched on the back, and a faint scent of the Spice Girls ‘Spice’ album still emanating from the device.
“It’s an incredible coincidence,” Ms Skeeball said while contemplating the odds of another Discman owner having the same taste in music and scratches.
Cash Converters employees remain baffled by the situation, noting this is the first time anyone has ever claimed ownership of a Discman in over a decade.
“It’s like finding a needle in a haystack,” said one employee, visibly confused by the sudden interest in ancient technology. “I didn’t even know what it was.”
Ms Skeeball’s friends and family support her conviction, with her mother recalling, “I remember that Discman like it was yesterday. It never left Candy’s side until it mysteriously vanished after the Spice Girls’ Spiceworld concert in ’99.”
Cash Converters staff, however, has offered a generous discount on the $9.99 price tag in the spirit of nostalgia.
“I just want to be reunited with my beloved Discman,” Ms Skeeball said.
