Where do heirlooms go when you have no kids?
My family has been having fewer kids every generation. I’m the only one in my generation, and I’m apparently not having any. Yet we have some wonderful family heirlooms that I always thought I’d pass down. Are they pretty much destined to be sold at some antique/flea market to someone who has no idea of their heritage, who will probably strip, refinish, and paint them some nasty color?
