    My mom has already asked us all what we wanted, including the grandkids. My brothers and I have an understanding that if we gave mom something, we get it back. I read an article about two weeks ago on how the kids won't want any of their parents' furniture. A good friend is cleaning out her mom's house of over 40 years to get it demolished. Her mom is going to live with them and they are going to rebuild a newer, more modern home with a mother in law plan so they can live in a larger, more comfortable house and care for her mom. She is asked me what to keep and what is worth selling. I sent her this article: http://www.nextavenue.org/nobody-wants-parents-stuff/
    Yes, I think that's the article I read! It should be required reading for everyone.

    Very pretty & wondrful memento...brooches are not really that popular anymore but they dress up anything even a scarf & I bet that could be converted to a pendant.

    No one to pass on jewelry to but my mother if she outlives me...Shes 88.

    Selling a mikimoto dress clip so talk about old!

    Its on ebay & I just received a rather paultry low offer of $200 (Think I paid more)& it has about $140 worth of 3.8 grams 9K gold value. I really don;t want to sell a mikimoto for a bit more than scrap after fees so I think I;'ll decline...

    Dress clips were out starting the 50's so I'm guessing it has to be about 70 years old...
