    knickknacks

    Dictionaries say "knickknack" means "a small decorative object in a house.
    Could anyone give me examples of knicknacks?

    For example, are dolls and photo frames included in knickknacks?

    I am not a teacher.

    This dictionary calls these small objects 'worthless'. This made me smile for some reason.
