Ephemera
Function: noun
1. something of no lasting significance —usually used in plural
2. ephemera plural : paper items (as posters, broadsides, and tickets) that were originally meant to be discarded after use but have since become collectibles
More than 5 years of teenage fashion tags saved by my oldest daughter. She had filled an entire drawer with them, and decided to create a collage to decorate her new apartment. She made two, and we framed them in a narrow shadow box. Like a hunter who displays mounted deer antlers, this is the trophy of a shopper.

ok I seriously thought there was something strange about me collecting clothes tags! So this is great someone else does it too!

Just think of the money in that pile of tags! or don't! She has some really cool ones!
