    collection issue

    Post by dee222 on Tue Oct 27, 2015 2:22 pm

    I have been storing a friends collection of WWII flight jackets  there is 20 in total some worth thousands, the reason I have them is his girlfriend wanted to move to Spain
    and she didn't want the collection in the new house so I have them I have contacted him 4 times this year but got no reply and now his email don't work any more so
    what the hell do I  do with it now , I have had it for 2 years.

    Maybe your friend's girlfriend talked him into going off grid ...Spain is beautiful...

    I would just hang onto the collection and wait some more..  if your friend is still breathing, or not in prison, chances are he'll contact you eventually.

    No collector just forgets about something they took pain and treasure  to gather unless they were physically or psychologically unable to retrieve said collection..

    Would'nt be the first time a love interest overrode common sense.. affraid What is a reasonable time to hold something for someone ?? That is your decision..

    There is no magic number when conscience ( and friendship ) is a factor.

    Look at it this way: as it stands, you have become the default curator and owner.... until you hear from your friend..

    Give him time he will be in touch but it may take quite some time

    Yup, sit on it as best you can. When contact is reestablished, politely request something for your trouble.
