Stories Provide Value

Significant Objects (http://significantobjects.com/) has writers create a story around an object. The object and the story is then posted to eBay. All profits are given back to the artists. The items are simple items worth very little and are selling for way more than you would expect.

“[The auction for this Significant Object, with story by Dan Reines, has ended. Original price: $.50. Final price: $12.50. Significant Objects will donate the proceeds of this auction to 826 National.]”

“[The auction for this Significant Object, with story by Jonathan Lethem, has ended. Original price: $1. Final price: $76.]”

So what is your story?
