Original Message:   In The Same Boat
Prior to the demise of The Bead Museum in 2011, my bead collection was willed to that institution.

Now, I am at loose ends to know what to do with my beads.

If one wants to donate a meaningful collection to a worthy museum, it should also come to them with a sizable amount of money—that will pay for its conservation over time, into the future.

And, the truth is, the museum can choose to sell-off any part of your collection, by deaccessioning it.

There is no easy answer to this issue of "what to do."
