    Antique shops are full of dish sets saved by their owners to pass along to their heirs that nobody wants any more. I have a suspicion that most of them will be repurposed for . Wait a generation or two and the few remaining sets will be worth a ton; you just have to hang onto the items for a hundred years or so.

    Side table giving you some side-eye! Thanks again for sharing these, Doug, and all the best for the super-emotional tidying.

    Just had a discussion on Facebook like this about 82-84 Dodge Rampage trucks.
    They claimed because they are rare they should be worth lots of money.
    Told them not if no one wants to buy them that badly.

    My grandmother asked all the kids and grandkids what items of hers they loved. Then a post-it was put with the order of who got 1st dibs. Made it easier to let other things go. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That being said, contact a local theater group/dept to see if they can use things.

    OMG….. we had a table like that at home when I was a kid (I’m 76) and my brothers
    always thought the knob in the center on the bottom had a function….they would crawl under and pull on it…trying to get it to « work »….??

    People have never wanted the styles their parents have. It has to go back to the grandparent’s generation at least before it becomes desirable.
    Audience/subculture makes a difference too. Lots of older goths collect 1920’s glassware and fancy dish sets, and like the style of that furniture, but antique stores don’t stock the furniture, and it’s too bulky to ship for ebay sales.

    Doug, you could always throw up a few items in an online auction and see if that attracts anyone.

    And I could see cats repurposing that table into a scratching post! 😀
