The entire idea of “keepsakes” is drastically different from what it was in our parents’ days.
Back when “limited edition” meant something, you could hold onto baseball cards, Treasure Trolls and comic books and know they’d be valuable—limited supply saw them appreciate with a little care and a lot of patience. But with mass production and the days of collecting memorabilia making way for downloadable content and digital everything, the collections that once stood the test of time don’t hold up like they used to!
But there’s one thing we pass down to our children that’s still in scarce supply no matter how many trends they see come and go in their lives.
And that’s their names.
