I’ve done it!
Because I have decided to keep my collection in one room I decided that in future if I buy another bell, my least favourite will have to go. Up to now I seem to have avoided actually doing it. Until this week. So one of my bells has gone. Another has come in it’s place. This will make it harder and harder to find additional bells which I find more desirable than any one of my bells now. Time will tell. It makes collecting more challenging this way. And less expensive!
I sold it on Ebay. From whence it came. Funnily enough I found a bell on a bedroom shelf this week which I had tried to sell on Ebay but it did not reach my reserve, so I kept it. Didn’t realise I still had it. I must think again about that. I did have a clear out of a few low value bells a few years ago and I gave those to a local charity shop. If I buy any more bells through my dealer friend in Hungerford I will ask him if he wants to buy the bell I intend to part with.
The thing I would really like to know is what happens to my bells after I’m gone. I’ll be watching!
