The collection would make mom's kitchen fridge proud.

    We’re all guilty of having it — that “secret” box in the corner of your closet with your ex’s old sweatshirt, handwritten love notes and photos of you in your happy days together. Now imagine if everyone combined that emotional memorabilia into a gallery...welcome to The Museum of Broken Relationships.
