Apologies if this has already been said (have not had time to read the whole thread!)  :P

This would be an absolute dream find for most of us here and I've been drooling over the videos and pics too  :dribble:

I think this is a stark lesson for all of us. If we wish our beloved collection to be dealt with in a specific way after our death, we should make a will stating those details.

I would hope that the executors of the will would then go to some lengths to carry out our wishes. For example, in my will I have specifically requested that all my ponies go to other collectors, rather than to charity shops or just disposed of.

For the most part, donating to charity shops, or auctions, these items will trickle down to collector's hands. Collectors are the only ones who really want these things.

I hope I don't burden my family members to much if/when they have to deal with my stuff. I could care less if they toss it, sell it, donate it-- I want them to do whatever is easiest for them.

Good point banditpony. I should have said to make sure your family are aware of your wishes and, more importantly, are happy to do this for you. Mine are.

I would say my family would do so. However, I have been in those shoes (finding good homes for things after a loved one has passed). It's certainly skewed my attitude about possessions. Heck, it skewed my attitude about gifts. That's why I said-- what ever is easiest for my family. :)

I have a friend who is dealing with a record and a coin collection... I dunno. :/ The time it's taking her (over a year), and the space it's taking (a whole room)... is a lot.

Yes!  Actually my grandfather had a magic collection- like original magic books, first editions, rare rare books- he was a magician and a very early member of the Magic Castle club - (which evidently was a big deal).

I'm sure the collection had value- but some of these things aren't supposed to be out of the hands of magicians-  and then there is the issue of FINDING someone who wants something so rare.

Finally my parents donated the entire collection to a magician whose mind was just blown to pieces.

I'm late to the party, but does anybody know if there was a Baby Buggy for sale?

I just thought of this after seeing this thread for the first time months ago, is mentioning shopgoodwill relevent to the convo? TBH I’ve seen lots there with plenty of gems. There was one with TWO Mimics once. Also a MOC Sweetheart Sister. Crazy that somebody would think to give that to a charity shop...

justinb - they've only just started listing playlets so there hasn't been a buggy yet.
