  • Items from a loved one that bring up fond memories, but don't have a place in your home such as home decor items, letters, antiques, old photographs
  • Mementos from your own life - concert t-shirt, birthday cards, travel souvenirs, race metals, awards, etc.

    About DAVED. 

    DAVED is a labor of love. Co-founded by a sister and brother duo, Patty Morrissey and David Huber.

    Patty is a lifestyle and organizing consultant who teaches clients how to honor their belongings and respectfully let go. David has always loved photography and archiving his personal belongings. To say that he's sentimental is an understatement. David is also a person living with autism and OCD. Patty and David started this service to create employment to suit his strengths (meticulous attention to detail, conscientiousness, and compassion) and support his health (flexible work hours, independence, purposeful work).  We hope to grow this business into one that creates jobs and marketable skills for other adults on the spectrum.

    Research from Penn State University shows that taking photos of our sentimental objects makes it easier to let them go. Banishing our keepsakes to the attic does not honor their value. The purpose of holding onto keepsakes is to enjoy them.  We'll help you let go of the physical clutter and start enjoying the story and meaning behind your mementos. 

    When you work with DAVED you support the Davids of the world with meaningful employment and save your memories from a lifetime in the attic.
