Everyday Treasures

Some of the most valuable items in our collection aren’t necessarily worth much money. It’s everyday objects—an advertising card, a comic book, an everyday dress, a child’s toy—that help us weave together the lives of people from the distant (or not so distant!) past. What do you consider your everyday treasures? What would they tell future generations about you, your family, or the times in which you lived?
