sold part of the collection today

Sold off part of the collection today to help raise funds for my grandma’s funeral costs. My grandma passed away on Jan 19, 2016 and because no one in the family had money saved for it I ended up selling a very large portion of the games & toy collections. I will be added all those I had sold into the wants list so I can hopefully find them again later and be able to trade for getting some back.
