Significant Objects /

Jul 30th, 2009

Rob wrote a short story for the Significant Objects project — a web site started by Joshua Glenn and Rob Walker. The two gave cheap thrift store objects to writers, asked them to make up a story about the objects, then put the items (along with their stories) on eBay, to test the premise that the added story would increase the objects’ value. Rob’s story is about a porcelain figurine, pictured below. You can read and bid (on this and other objects) here.
