...and whats going to happen to all this stuff when its time for you to "let it go"????

At a guess, one of the next generation of collectors will collect it and place it in their garage too... ;D

Though I'm probably a bit young to think of such things, I have standing orders that if I "go", everything of mine is to be sold (bar any keepsakes that whoever sells my stuff wants to hold onto), no point keeping it around if the person who appreciated it is no longer there... :)

Nice haul sir!

Would have been interested in seeing what "Collector #1" made off with if you were just left with these old things ;-)

I'm stunned. To me, as a modest holder of about 10 phones, I cannot fathom what to do with this many phones, other than erect a cheap building, charge an entrance fee and let people use these phones for a cost, connecting them via cable modem(s). Maybe you can build a row of different phone booths and use each one, again charging for the calls made. You'll need a group plan from Verizon, AT&T, etc. and then figure in enough profit. A working museum? I don't know...I'm just

Are these items what remained after the first two collectors left, or is this the entire collection because the first two collectors couldn't make a deal ?

The first collector bought a few things, I being the second collector bought the rest.
