Let me start by saying that I'm an emotional and nostalgic person.
My grandpa's health has been declining so he's moved in with one of his daughters and we recently sold his house so we had to clear out all his possessions. People can accumulate a lot of stuff in a lifetime.
I found this all to be rather sad - laying someones life out on tables and putting price tags on it. But, if there are other people that can use these items, I'd much rather see them in good hands than in a landfill.
