Just like how some woman felt it was more beautiful to be trim, others felt being plump was the key to being beautiful. This advertisement came from the same magazine as a previously posted ad on weight loss.
I am not a licensed appraiser; therefore, I cannot provide a value for your or my objects. Nor do I want to. I'm a firm believer in loving an object for its aesthetic beauty or for its family history. Placing a monetary value on something demeans its value in other ways, and I'd like to avoid that all together!
