Barb Crews, the collectibles expert at About.com recently put me in touch with a nice woman named Anita, who is feeling a little overwhelmed. Anita’s daughter, Maureen, was a Star Wars fan and collector all her life, and had amassed a large Star Wars collection over the years. Unfortunately, Maureen had a disability which made her medical bills pile up and after contracting encephalitis, she recently passed away.
Anita would like to find a new home for her daughter’s collection, and in the process, raise some money to help with the burial expenses. She has asked me to help get the word out about the collection and help find a buyer. She would like to start by selling some vintage figures, which she thinks might have the rare double telescoping light sabers, but she is also interested in selling the entire collection as one big lot.
Here is a small sampling of what’s available…
This is just a small portion of the collection. I have posted many more photos on Flickr here.
Anita lives near Albany, NY and if you are in the New England area and want to get a better look and possibly make an offer, you can contact her at alhtreasures at gmail.com. (Don’t be a sleaze bag and submit a lowball offer. There are some nice items in there, so be fair!)
Please help me in getting the word out about this since Anita would like to sell these items as soon as possible. Thanks.
