As the owner of StoryKeep, a Brooklyn-based production company for families, I'm constantly thinking about the value of heirlooms. Instead of objects, StoryKeep creates personal documentary films, oral histories and archive-grade books that turn the intangible-ness of stories and memories into something you can pass on. Unlike objects that should be thoughtfully passed on at the right moment - often after someone passes - we come in before it's "too late" to document a parent's or grandparent's life story. I have a red satin dress my grandmother wore in the 1950s, which I love, but I also have recordings of her talking about growing up on a farm in Wisconsin. I bet you can guess which one is more valuable to me!
What's the Right Age or Moment to Pass on an Heirloom?

Our customers as us all the time if they should tip our handymen. About 1/2 of our customers tip. We usually recommend anywhere between 5% and 10% of the total bill.
