Editors Note
For all the grandparents out there who have been accused of spoiling their grandkids, check out this antique, child sized, SILVER horse drawn carriage that is coming up for auction at Sotheby's. It was made for the two children of the Maharajah of Bikaner in 1880. See:

I have been reading with interest how many families have solved the problem of distributing the personal items of their parents when they have passed away. I have only one sister who lives about 500 miles away from me. My mother and father moved to the city where I lived many years ago. My father passed away 19 years ago and mother just 4 years ago. She lived with me the entire 15 years after my father's passing. She was very sick with dementia and life was certainly trying. However, her entire life she would give things away to family members. My sister has about 30 or so Hummel figurines from the 60's and beautiful antique glassware that the dealers would just love to have their hands on. Mom kept her Royal Doulton figurines, Dresden and several other beautiful cut glass bowls which I now have.

When mother died, there was still the issue of the division of finances, etc. My sister said to me that she did not want anything. She said since I took care of mom for 15 years, I had a right to keep everything. Of course, I argued that was not fair and I could not do that. She refused to take anything. We laugh now because how often siblings bicker and fight over estates. We bickered and argued too but it was for a totally different reason. I was blessed with a wonderful mother and father and they blessed me with an angel for a sister.

My father left many handwritten notes that were so much fun to read. They brought tears and laughter to our eyes as they were so typical of dad. He had to explain right down to who got the VCR and why? These letters are precious. Dad's last written entry on his letter was that he wanted my sister and I to always get along and love each other forever. I think we have given him his wish. Billie from Ohio

--Another Story--

I read the story by Dixie about Joshua's feeling hurt that his Grandmother had sold the treasure he had made for her for only 5cents. And unfortunately I can remember what that feeling is like. I remember when I was young (about 8) saving up until I had enough money to buy an ornament my Mother had admired in a shop - it took quite some time since I did not get pocket money and could only save what I had earned from doing chores for our neighbors. So I was really proud when I gave it to her for her birthday - I was heartbroken when she gave it to my niece less then six months later just because she asked for it. I really hurt when my Mother said to my eldest sister in front of me - "of course she can have it, I never did like it and I can't figure how I got it".

I now have a young teenage son, and when sorting out some stuff that is in the attic he came across a box of things that he has given to me over the years. He asked why I had kept them and in reply I asked him to tell me what I have always said to him about gifts. I was please that he repeated word for word what I have always told him. "It is not the price of a gift that counts - its the thought behind the gift".
It is so easy in this modern world when every where the advertising screams for people to Upgrade, replace and buy bigger & better to just buy without thinking. It can take courage to refuse to follow that sort of thinking and be different BUT to my mind it is far more rewarding then rushing out to just buy anything. After all the memory of a special gift chosen with love and great consideration (or hand made if that is possible) is something priceless - BUT only to those who have the power to look behind the gift at the thought that went into it in the first place.

I've been reading with interest the letters about the unsavory auctioneers. I had a similar experience back a a couple of years ago. I live in the Ft. Myers - Naples, Florida area and most of the auction houses here are looking for the very high end jewelry and art type items. My late husband and I had been in the flea market business for quite some time and after he passed away, I could no longer carry on the business alone. We had a lot of surplus inventory left and I was finally able to find an auctioneer in the Cape Coral area who handled the type of items I had. Unfortunately I did not do my homework in checking his references. He came to the house and seemed to be a very honest and professional person. I consigned over 800 items to him, many of them marked china and pottery pieces, several old cameras, some sports equipment, etc. I was unable to attend the auction where my items were sold. I was out of town due to an illness in the family. After the auction was completed, I received less than $150 for over 800 items. The receipts that were sent to me showed the majority of my items being sold in box lots, each box lot for $2.00. I don't believe this is the way the sale really went. Then it took several phone calls to finally get my check from the auction house. So, I just want to caution any readers out there that are considering consigning any items to an auction house, be sure to do your homework and thoroughly investigate the reputation of the people you are dealing with. I learned the hard way. Vicki B. - Bonita Springs, FL

--Another Story--

When my very darling mother passed away in April of 2006, her collection of porcelain dolls numbered over 500! My mother and I had made porcelain antique reproductions for over 20 years and she had collected quite a number of other favorite dolls. The task of dividing all these dolls seemed daunting but we came up with a method that worked; one that is similar to what others have written about.
My sisters and I each chose a number and, of course, #1 got first pick - we each went in turn and chose our very favorite doll. Fortunately we each have very different tastes and none of us wanted the same doll. After that, we continued until we had the dolls we wanted most - we only had room for a limited number. Of course there were MANY dolls left - so the rest of the family was allowed to choose, and the remainder were given to friends and extended family. My mother's "babies" each found a good home where they will be loved and cared for - just as she wished. There was one doll that she specifically asked ME to take - a 5ft.7in life sized porcelain reproduction of an 1870's French Store Mannequin. Mama said that no one else would know how to take care of her - or even move her. We had each made one but mine went to a close friend who was a doll lover and who was very ill. So, I got my "Lady Grace" back. She stands watch over the antique babies in my living room.

Other pieces had stickers underneath them - placed there by my mother - with names of those she personally wished to have them. It made those little items even more special since my mother specifically chose them for us. Mama's jewelry was easy to divide also - before she died - photos were taken of each piece and then my mother wrote on the back of each photo the name of the person she wanted to receive it The pictures were then sealed in an envelope. No arguments there.

The larger furniture items were divided between my sister and me. Again, for the most part, we all wanted and needed different things = except for one sister, there was no problem. One sister seemed to feel she was entitled to everything and had taken more than her "share". But, she was talked to and convinced to bring back some of the items. The one item I really wanted was my g.grandmother's bed. She had already removed it from the home. Living just across from my mother, she had the opportunity to remove things from the house without us knowing it. But, I had a "talk" with her and I got the bed. I had a wonderful, close relationship with my grandmother all of my life - she did not. So, I guess felt more entitled to the bed. She had no sentimental attachment to it, but simply wanted it.
Other than this incident - everything went smoothly. After the daughters got what they wanted - grandchildren were allowed to choose pieces. Thankfully, everything worked out well. JH

When we were first married we had very little furniture. My mom called one day and said she had found a dining room table for us at a used furniture store. She paid $20 as it was expandable but had no leaves. We took it, my husband refinished it and we had leaves made for it. It turned out to be walnut with lovely lines. Forty plus years later, we still use it in our dining room and I wouldn't trade it for any other. For the most part, I would much prefer to have used furniture rather than new. Anne W.

--Another Story--

In regard to Mary's post about the eccentric wealthy woman who would outbid everyone at auctions, just for the thrill of winning and storing up all of those purchases... Perhaps this woman is making sure she will have the biggest, grandest estate sale of them all one day when she passes!!! And I'd like to attend that one! Jamie

--Another Story--

Just a note to say how much I enjoy hearing from Tias and viewing the wares. Even though I am a senior citizen and am constantly being gently pressured by my husband to downsize our own several generation collection of stuff, if I see something which greatly appeals to me, I just may purchase the item/s.

As far as negativity is concerned, I have not been negative enough myself to read any of this into Tias. What one person terms as such, I would call it "human nature". A sociology book or psychology book can be fascinating and perused for this type of learning, reading, and illumination. I find the experiences of Tias contributors fascinating and illuminating in the realm of human nature. Judging from the number of responses generated by many of the letters, it appears Tias is providing services other than material.

Tias is helping us to realize we are not alone in the disappointments that come our way. We are being reminded that the day is coming when our offspring will have to deal with our stuff and that we can help prepare for this time with our creativity.

We have seen various methods, such as the taking turns to choose favored items after the fact. Making a list of our things and having our grown children sign their names after what they would like best. (Still have to play Solomon on that one). On and on with that. Just having nice, earnest little chats with each offspring before making or changing a will could help. Most of all, let's start thinking of making that will if you haven't already done so....Thank you is all I really want to say. Della

Having had to move my dad to a smaller home after mom passed away I find the stories on your site of ‘who gets what’ very interesting. It can really become complicated when there are 10 siblings involved. Mom loved to collect almost anything and if we didn’t have a collection, she would start one for us and add to it periodically. Anyway, there was a ton of her loved boxes of things left for us to go through and we did, especially enjoying when we found something with a masking tape strip with a name on it. Mom had designated who she would like to receive the things she felt strongly about and it helped enormously. We have a step-mom now who also happens to have 10 children (we’re all Catholic!) and when I mentioned to her that this would be a great idea, as she has many beautiful and expensive antiques, she replied….no, I’m going to just let them fight it out….and laughed. The thing is, she really means it and this is what she chooses to leave her children. How sad. I love reading all the suggestions of how to make it an easier process and keep everyone friendly at a difficult time. I also enjoy the comments weekly and although I know nothing about dealing and selling, I find it very interesting just to learn more about a new area.

Well Jeri, I have the same dilemma as you. I have been collecting anything and everything since I was around 8 years of age, I am now 55. I have a house full of Carnival glass and curios, furniture and just like you, I have two out buildings that I keep lock completely full. But I have no children. So what's a man to do? I packed up over 70 boxes of carnival glass that was not in curios 4 years ago. Place them in one shed along with some rockers and small chairs, etc. My mind kept telling me that I had all this room now in the house. So off again I went. I've passed the point of no return. It is just a down right obsession. I could pack up another 70 boxes plus. And probably will one day soon. HA. I got the collecting bug early in life. You name it, I probably have one or maybe 18. I also garden (That started in the 3rd grade). From Exotic orchids to a full blown vegetable garden. I can, I freeze, I dry. I thought I had cut back but that's another lie. Attached in just a sample of my gardening obsession which doesn't show the whole of what my garden consist of.

HI.. I am wondering if anyone else gets a little miffed when dealers don't put prices on their items? So many times, I find some little thing that catches my eye, and when I pick it up, it doesn't have a price on it. At that point, I usually try to decide what price I think it should be.... and ask the person in charge. Most times it is some elderly lady that doesn't know ''what the dealer wants for it", and will walk through the store, trying to find something similar to gage what she should charge. ALWAYS she will quote some unreasonable price, so that SHE wont get in trouble for selling it too cheap, and I walk away miffed that the dealer didn't put a price on it. Has that happened to others? Or am I the only lucky one? I even wonder if dealers deliberately leave prices off, hoping for an offer, which might be higher than they would think it was worth?

Be sure to check out our NEW! vintage recipe archive online at: http://www.tias.com/newsletter/topics/A%20Vintage%20Recipe.html Over 1200 wonderful vintage recipes are listed.

In the last issue, Paula M. requested a recipe for "a frozen buttermilk sorbet or sherbet" several recipes were mailed in by a reader...
-------
This used to be one of the favorite treats my Mom made when I was young, back in the 1960 to1970's. All I can remember is my mother told me she put buttermilk,canned pineapple and sugar into a bowl and stirred it all together. Put the bowl into the freezer and every now and then check it ,to see if it has started to harden. Take it out and stir it up again (it'll look like slush). Put it back into the freezer. A little while later, take it out and stir it up again. Put it back into the freezer and wait until done. The reason you have to stir it up a couple of times, is because it makes the sherbet light and airy instead of hard as a block of ice. She couldn't remember how much of each ingredient to use,but with a bit of imagination and some trial and error,hopefully it will come out to your taste. But I do remember she put double the sugar in it, because we all loved sweet treats.
