When Kit's dad loses his job during the Great Depression, there isn't money left over for many extras. That's why Kit holds dear to the special things that are all her own, including:
- A crocheted white hat called a cloche, which is the French word for bell, with a silky green ribbon
- A woven clutch-style purse with embroidered flowers
- A pretty printed hankie
- A reproduction buffalo nickel made of metal
- A metal necklace styled after a compass inside a ship's wheel
