SRS, I am embarrassed with several boxes of such "little objects", all carefully packed, that have survived several moves. The most embarrassing box, labelled "Ancestral Doohickeys" contains little objects that came from my paternal grandparents' house, which was sold in 1968. So far, I have not been able to let them go.

Besides, who wants a jar that once -- i.e., well over a hundred years ago -- contained bear-grease hair-dressing? I'm sure it was kept because it is very precisely fitted into a wooden sleeve, making it suitable for use by a gentleman who travels, but ... sheesh!
