sentimental valuePeople's hearts are filled with love not only for one another, but for their most valued possessions. When we part with our objects, things can get emotional and these emotions are documented on the often hilarious blog Sentimental Value.

It was started by Emily Spivack, who does a great job of keeping it updated “as a way to collect some of the interesting stories about specific pieces of clothing and accessories I've discovered on Ebay.”

The stories range from funny:
I hate to let it go because it has great sentimental value; I was once levitated in it in a magic act

There is a funny story about this: the owner of the purse was with her husband stationed in Hong Kong, Thailand and other parts of Asia in the 1950s and into the early 1960s. At one time, there was a large python living under their house, and so they had someone come in to remove and dispose of it. They were asked if they wanted to use the snake skin for anything and my client said yes, she wanted some shoes and a handbag made for her. THIS is the bag! And the heels that match it I have listed separately

To the amazingly historical:
It is stated on the box lid in very faint pencil that the dress was worn by her at King George V's funeral
