Well, This Is It --> (mental image - movie reference:Real Genius)
My father passed away last weekend
The collection is my pride and joy, but the priority now is how to look after my mother and grandmother and this is going to require major building expenses to the tune of amounts I don't have but do have some of it in the computer collection (albeit about as liquid as an ocean on mars). The museum is a dream and something in my head and reality is in the pocket.
I doubt there is probably a buyer though with a collection that has cost possibly in excess of $50K but I think I may have to try my luck and list on trademe (hmm, or sella which is commission free). I couldn't split or break as that'd be the slippery slope of it losing value and its unique quality of the collection as a whole. There is such a significant amount in it of just postage (cursed nz post!) and in this case the sum of the parts is probably not greater than the whole.
Perhaps I'll wait till I check the lotto ticket.
