prized finds

Even as we pack and pack and pack our things (and as I look at Marie Kondo's book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up on my to-read list) we can't help but indulge in our favorite weekend pastime of yard sale-ing and junk shopping. The temptation of the possibility of finding a treasure is just too great.

What is so appealing about old stuff? Maybe the history, maybe the novelty - the shop in the pictures above offered a baby shark preserved whole in a jar. Who buys that?

I wonder when we are old and gone what people will think of our Ikea furniture and archaic iPhones or if any of it even last long enough to become a relic.
