For Sale I inherited a large Christmas display

    I inherited a large Christmas display that my dad used to build under the Christmas tree for many many years. Some of the items are very old and have been collected over the course of at least 50 years. All the items were hand wrapped and packed away each January when they were taken down. It is quite an eclectic collection. I haven't found myself putting this together and I hate to get rid of it, but I thought that someone from this forum would love it as much as my family did and get use out of it, he would like it to go to someone that would appreciate it. I have attached a few pictures, I have more available from various years. There are more items than shown as some things were rotated in/out from year to year. Please let me know if interested. In addition to the display pieces, I have many of the antique Christmas ornaments from the tree. Just posting this to see if there may be any interest.

    Would you consider selling the 'town' portion separately from the Nativity? How much are you asking?

    So sorry, for the VERY late reply. I'm willing to take what I can get, however I don't see how it could all be shipped, so it would have to be picked up in the Chicago suburbs where it is located. If there is serious interest, please let me know. Thanks

    Sorry for the LATE reply. Yes I still have this, I had to drop finding a home for this, but am now back at it. I can't image trying to ship this due to the overall volume of the items, so pickup in the Chicago suburbs would be required. I am not looking to get much if anything for it, I would like it to go to somewhere and be used.

    I would prefer it to all go together, but I could try and break it up if there was serious interest. I am concerned about shipping however so pickup in the Chicago suburbs would probably be required.

    I would love to come and get it. That's the kind of thing that deserves a year round display space that would serve a lot of people.

    That would be awesome! I wonder how many MMCers we could recruit to help load up a truck!

    I was talking to a guy who owns several empty commercial spaces here along Main Street where I live. He told me he'd let me set up in one of those spaces as long as I didn't charge or sell anything.

    I'd seriously do it.

    We have relatives that live in the suburbs of Chicago. We could make a trip of it and help you load up. If you ever do that, I'd love to see it.

    Jeff, I didn't know there were any replies, the email from the forum ends up in my spam box and I just now saw it. Is there a way to send a private message to someone in this forum? Or can I just put my email out to start with to make personal contact.

    Thanks,
    Kevin R.
