SIGNIFICANT OBJECTS is an interesting project that pairs thrifted, seemingly insignificant objects with creative writers.  The participating writers then invent fictional stories about the objects, and the objects and stories are sold together on ebay.  The stories suddenly give these discarded objects significance and value, and the stories that are basically pulled out of thin air are pretty surprising.  Significant Objects includes writers from The Elegant Variation and Maud Newton, as well as many other names you might recognize.  Check it out!
