Downsizing And What To Do With Figurines

lladrosDusting these things are a pain! From the cheapest price of 99 cents to the most expensive into the thousands, we buy and gift them with pleasure.

If you have a Lladro collection then you may be sitting on a small fortune. So before you (mom) give to the goodwill you may want to do some homework and research on selling second hand.

I don’t think I have ever been in a home that hasn’t had some type of figure or statue and I’ve been in LOTS of homes. The ones that were handed down are the most difficult to part with.

Don’t panic just yet. You don’t need and you don’t use but if you enjoy them, then keep them. However, if you are downsizing then now is perfect time to make some decisions.

 

Options;

Start with a few internet searches to see which ones are worth some $$ and which ones were bought at the dollar store.

Let family know you are organizing and the key to organizing is getting rid of stuff. Gift some of these figurines to kids and grand kids.

Sell online. Using a dealer is an option, but remember they will take a portion of the profits.

Use them for a fund raiser for your favorite charity or simply donate.

It is hard to part with things that have strong memories attached. Keep in mind, these are just porcelain, glass, clay or plastic.

Memorialize by taking a photograph.

Remember, it’s just stuff and you can’t take it with you into the next world.
