A while ago there was a website called The Hairpin. It was funny and weird and meant a lot to some people.
The Heirloom is a remembrance of The Hairpin in the form of a daily email with links to posts from ten years earlier as best preserved by The Internet Archive.
If you'd like an example of what this looks like, you can see one here.
The Heirloom is not affiliated in any way with The Hairpin, The Awl Network or anyone formerly employed by either entity. Think of it more like the elderly millennial version of a fancam, or whatever the kids are doing now. Please contact the administrator with any concerns.
