Many of us keep memorabilia, old family photographs, documents or heirlooms in a box in our attics, basements or garages. What’s the point of owning these items if they linger in a place where they can't been seen and appreciated? We all have items we want to preserve. Maybe you have old documents that are getting faded. Maybe it's an award you won or a piece of memorabilia that means a lot to you or your family. Or, maybe you have the wedding photo of your great-great grandparents. Truthfully, without a proper enclosure or frame of some sort, anything you own is going to fade or disintegrate over time. Plus, basements, attics and garages are not the ideal places to store your items without damaging them.
