  1. Sharon, I have a 1916 model T erector toy in the original wooden box and signed by the owner in 1916 for Christmas. I would like to find it a good home where it could be seen by future generations. Everything is there in great condition. Please give me some helping finding this the proper home so it can be enjoyed.

  2. Hi Sharon,
    I have a neighbor, in his 90’s who recently had me view his extensive Vintage Toy collection.
    He asked me to help him find a museum or a source to exhibit his collection.
    His name is Charles Sharpe. Charles has written books on Toys and was a photographer.
    His collection fills his entire one bedroom apartment, including the kitchen and bathroom.
    He sleeps in a chair!
    We live in an apartment across from The Contemporary Museum of Art and I thought I would ask them if they are interested.
    If you have any input, please contact me.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
