Does it make you wonder why these things wind up on eBay too?

Maybe they never had children. Maybe their children weren’t interested in keeping “old” family mementos? Maybe they gave a lot of things to sell to an eBay assistant and didn’t know what they were selling and weren’t paying attention to the auctions?

I have a question for my fellow bloggers:

If you didn’t have any family to pass your beloved items on to, what would you do with them?
