This is your future pinsiders!!
Nope, told my wife if anything happens to me to put all my shit in auction.
No estate sales and god forbid she has to deal with people coming and low balling this shit out of her.
Quoted from mamemaster:
It's funny - regardless of the debate here about the value of an Estate Sale - it makes me sad to see someone's collection being sold because they're either too old to take care of it - or are gone.
There's something sad to me about these sales as these are machines of fun. The thought of person that bought them to have fun - and now they're getting sold off likely because they're dead.
My wife promised not to do this - but keep my arcade as my shrine!
You think that's sad, you ain't seen nothing.
Start going to estate sales and you will see some fucked up things.
Especially when the heir is some more distant relative that doesn't give a shit and just wants the money.
Sometimes that family member is present at the sale and you will see things like family photo albums in the trash pile.
Quoted from La4s:
People are heartless sometimes, and all the care about is the inheritance. I worked with the elderly population for a long time and have seen some really messed up things that much worse than throwing away family photo albums.
We all give value to items that have no value to others, and that is how people in hobbies rip off little old ladies.
Yep, it's all about the money with some people.
