One of the early supporters of this project was (and is) Susan Clements, one of the few who have actually bought multiple Significant Objects. So we are very excited that she’s sent along a few pictures of those Objects in their new home. The JFK Bust + Annie Nocenti story (above) was among the objects that went up for sale on this project’s very first day.

Below, two more of her acquisitions: the Pen Stand, written about by Lizzie Skurnick, and below that, the Kitty Plate, story by James Parker. The latter appears with a portrait, the subject of which I was asked to guess. I guessed right.

Big thanks to Susan for sending these along! More images of Significant Objects in new homes as we get them. Hey owners: That Flickr pool is here, or email ’em, you know how to reach us.
