Today’s Significant Objects

s.o.I’ll stop repeating myself — or at least get back to more variety in the posts here — pretty soon.

But first:

  • Jenny Davidson writes about a toy hot dog. (“I blame it on the book: a pocket-sized lined notebook with a black matte cover, bound at the left-hand margin and with a band to hold it shut.”) For sale here.
  • Matthew Sharpe writes about a mule figurine. (“This is the statue of the mule that I have sculpted by my hands, but if you are the serious person about the hand-sculpted statues, also serious when you are knowing how to feel the deep meaning in Life, then you will see that is not really the statue of the mule.” For sale here.

The hot dog is an incredible bargain, still at its opening 12-cent price (that’s what it cost at the thrift store). The mule figurine has already been bid up to $11.

Further diversion may be found at MKTG Tumblr, and the Consumed Facebook page.
