Winston loves any time before the Party controlled everything. He wanders into the prole section and buys things like a diary and ink pen. He knows these things could get him in a lot of trouble, even vaporized, but he still covets them. Winston returns to Mr. Charington's junk shop and sees a glass paperweight with a pink shell in it. He loves it because it existed before the party and the party had not been able to change it.
