An Offer One Can't Refuse...

Out of the blue, someone contacted me (recently) with this proposal...
I came across your blog from a link on the Pollack's model theater page. My father has been making scenes and figures for his model theater for the last 60 years. He has over 1500 figures, mostly Shakespearean or Shavian, some Marlowe. There are nearly 50 scenes from every Shakespeare play and a large wooden model theater, with a spinning scene area. Unfortunately I never shared his interest in this hobby and I do not really have the room to keep all of this as they have come to live with us now in their twilight years. The question I have is do you know of any person or group that would be interested in buying all or any of this?
...I think I can safely answer in the affirmative. It isn't often that a collection comes out of hiding, so to speak, but it definitely sounds intriguing! If any of you would be interested, let me know and I can put you in touch with the individual.
