Now I have to ask how do you put a price on things like your treasured feathers, a piece of beadwork that was a gift from a dear grandmother, or you long hours put in on beading your dresses? I can give them a material cost for my buckskins and I can figure how many hours that I have in the work on them, but how can put a price on the sentinmental value of my skins, or my reproduction of a outfit that my grandmother wore in the early 1900's? How do I put a value on the head piece that my husband gave me for our anniversary?? I am sitting here trying to figure all that out. how do I put a price on the pipestone and the stone that Jim brought home from one of his trips out west that means so much to the both of us? The insurance company is never going to understand that these items are priceless to us.
Wasn't it Lloyd of London that used to insure anything?

Maybe they could help.

I think I know that tipi insurance guy. He used to sell the freshmen hall passes in high school.....
