[Tutor] program for creation of unique objects

I'm having trouble trying to figure out how to create multiple
objects that contain duplicate entries that can be uniquely identified
within a Tkinter GUI.
I want a user to define an item and then
define multiple characteristics about that item,
save a dictionary of items,
and then reload the items back into the GUI upon restart.
The code I'm have trouble with looks something like this.
itemframe = Frame(parent)
entry1 = Entryfield(itemframe)
entry2 = Entryfield(itemframe)
button1 = Button(itemframe, command = update())
a = entry1.getvalue()
b = entry2.getvalue()
values = [a,b]
The problem I'm having is that as soon as the user runs newitem()
the previous itemframe loses its name and i can only access the most
I feel like the most convenient way to accomplish this would be something
x = Frame() in parent
itemframe'x' = itemframe
Where 'x' is a unique integer. But I don't know how to create unique
variables on the fly.
I'm sure there are a thousand ways to accomplish what I'm trying to,
and it seems like a trivial thing that gets dealt with all the time,
and I'm embarrased that I have to ask.
I'm pretty new to programming and this is my first attempt at a GUI or a
really useful program. Thanks for your help.
