Writing Prompt: Journeys to Jazzsoon

While nosing around the Internet the other night, I stumbled on this video from The Atlantic. It’s a short profile of a man named Jazzsoon, a self-styled “Brooklyn hustler.” He collects everything from comic books to records to sneakers and sells them on the street to make his living. (He’s a colorful character, with the language to match, so definitely pop in some headphones if you’re watching this at work.)

Pick one of the items in Jazzsoon’s collection, or imagine something he might like, and write about its journey from its original owner to Jazzsoon’s living room.
