What an item can represent

Last weekend my husband and I opened a few more boxes of items from his grandparents house.
We found really interesting items, we found a set of wonderful Trunkey the elephant from the San Francisco Zoo from my husband's childhood. That one object brought so many fond memories of wonderful days spent at the zoo with his family.

When we open boxes it usually takes a lot of time to go through them to decide what we will do with each item, first because he tells me the story if he knows where it came from and because these items have a past, they were part of his family life and it is hard to part from some of them.

The first picture shows just a few of the items that we selected.
Among them a very interesting relish tray made in Italy that I just listed in my vintage store

This is a handmade, handpainted relish tray made in Italy by Pizzato
