We keep things despite their lack of inherent value. We are curators. We are collectors. We are sentimental.
Sometimes these objects live in bags under the bed, boxes at the top of the closet, in junk drawers, spare bedrooms, and basement corners. They cause us to pause, trigger memories, and a bit of nostalgia when we come across them – typically at inopportune times like when we’re searching for our spare keys, cleaning for guests, or packing up to move.
I want to hear your stories. Please, tell me more.
