When an auction buyer or facility owner comes across heirloom or keepsake-type items which are really only valuable to the original owners, it’s great when those items find their way back home.
Reno, NV (PRWEB) January 06, 2012
During a recent Florida storage auction Thomas Brasswell became the rightful owner of a series of family heirlooms dating back to the early 1800s. According to a recent MSNBC.com story, after realizing what he had purchased, Brasswell set out to find the owners of the collection, which included, among other items, birth certificates, photographs, genealogical records and a centuries-old Bible. StorageTreasures.com has also learned that with the help of a friend, Brasswell found the owner of the documents, Cynthia Snow, and has made arrangements to return them to her in the near future. Using those documents, Snow plans on writing a book to tell the story of families displaced by a Depression-era dam development project near Boston.
“When an auction buyer or a storage facility owner comes across heirloom or keepsake-type items which are really only valuable to the original owners, it’s great when those items find their way back home.” StorageTreasures President and Founder Lance Watkins continued, “Storage Treasures definitely encourages its members and the industry in general to make a true effort to return such items back to their original owners. It’s just the right thing to do and really, it just makes sense when you consider that some heirloom, document or keepsake with little or no monetary value might be priceless to someone else.”
