What to do with Grandma's China?
I think we all know someone who has inherited lots of "stuff". Maybe valuable, maybe not. More than likely this "stuff" comes into its new space with mixed feelings. Comments I hear regularly are along the lines of "I really feel like I should keep it", "What am I going to do with it?" and "OMG - why did they keep all this "stuff"??!!
When you're talking estate clearances, more than likely the recipients of the treasured "stuff" already have what they want and need. The china setting grandma loved may give rise to sentimental thoughts, but the kids aren't likely to use it and definitely won't have it on display! So what can you do with accumulated treasures acquired from relatives? Here are some ideas.
- Ideally, have a conversation with your loved ones about their "stuff" before the event. Sometimes the amount of "stuff" is reduced when people have to move into a smaller home or residential care.
