I hope I'm not out of line and don't have to have my hands slapped.
My cousin once removed has sold the homestead that's been in the family for 5
generations. They're having an auction. I want to know if I stand a better chance of
getting family things at a better price by offering to buy before the auction or going and
1. There's a rocker cradle, homemade, that probably my grandmother slept in (she was
born in 1893) it could very well go back further.
2. A wooden bowl and ladle that they use to removed the buttermilk from the butter.
3. An old telephone that hung on the wall with separate mouthpiece.
4. Old postcards. They're mostly souvenir like postcards with no writing on them. Some
are from a relative during WW II.
5. A real old record player.
6. Pouched egg cups they used when they had a boarding house.
What would be a reasonable price to offer for all these items, together or separately?
There's alot more but it's packed in boxes waiting for the sale.
I just have to share this. I got the vest that my GGrandmother was suppose to have worn at
her wedding. Thrilling!
