Out With the Old

After a breakup or two, most people collect a shoebox full of mementos that they don’t necessarily want to keep, but can’t seem to just toss unceremoniously in the trash. The collection typically includes jewelry, which is definitely hard to part with.

Enter Exboyfriendjewelry.com, a place to unload the old—and maybe make a little cash, too. While it seems a bit tacky to profit from a gift, users say it’s cathartic to sell off rings, bracelets and necklaces from a former lover. The site also offers people the chance to trade or simply give away items they no longer want, a good option for those squeamish about trading cash for broken dreams.
