'Tis the season for lovely stories like this one in which a woman breaks a prized Christmas ornament that she purchased at Lord and Taylor in the 1980s when she travelled there with her now-deceased brothers.
Her daughter, seeing her mother remember that Christmas ornament each year, eventually reaches out online for help and readers help her locate the ornament on eBay. Given eBay's vast selection of listings and global community, the fact that they found it on that site really does not really surprise me but it is heart warming that people online helped put the person who wanted to replace a treasured memory together with a seller who had one for sale.
The ornament is a hand blown and hand painted glass Italian Soffieria de Carlini Christmas ornament. You can find the listing here on eBay.
