GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A wallet that was lost eight years ago at a convention center in Grand Rapids turned up during a carpet replacement project.

The Grand Rapids Press reports (https://bit.ly/2e1NS0L ) Tamaryn Tobian had forgotten about the wallet, which she thought was stolen from her purse when she saw the musical “Rent” at DeVos Place in 2008. She recently got a call from the center’s security team, however, saying it was found.

The newspaper says the wallet ended up underneath a corner of the carpet at the facility’s inner lobby.

Tobian says the wallet was pretty much intact. The pockets were filled with now-expired credit cards, a former work identification and faded receipts.

She says the wallet was “a little time capsule” of her life and a reminder of the past.
