Fans gathered outside Amy Winehouse's London home were treated to special mementos this week, when the singer's father, Mitch Winehouse, started handing out items that had belonged to her.

"There are Amy's T-shirts. This is what she would have wanted – for her fans to have her clothes," Mitch told the crowd. As he handed out the items, a pair of Amy's signature ballet shoes were visible in his back pocket, reports

"God bless Amy Winehouse," Mitch added before riding away in a taxi.

Before leaving, he'd dispersed several of the "Rehab" singer's tanks tops, sunglasses and other trinkets, reports the Sun, which also said Amy's family kept her prized guitar and notebooks.

One fan, John Gallagher, said of the souvenirs: "They were very small in size and skinny, like her figure."

Thursday night at Jazz After Dark, a London Soho club that was Amy's favorite, her parents gathered with such friends as Kelly Osbourne, Eliza Doolittle and Mark Ronson to celebrate the life that ended after only 27 years last Saturday.
