    Sounds like the garage is just the start of it. But starting with the garage, if she wants to make some money, recycle.

    She is starting with the house. She has to make room for us and I said I won't move in until I know I can move from room to room without falling or tripping over a stack of stuff and breaking my hip. The garage can be done this spring. Maybe this fall. Depends on how willing she is to get rid of it sooner rather than later. I just wanted an idea or head start with asking a bunch of guys (you guys) about how to deal with that damn garage. MrGracie LOVES it...but, I said HAYELL NO! lol

    I understand. Just start recycling stuff, starting with the garage. You gotta start somewhere.

    /——-/ It depends on where she lives. If it’s s farm in the middle of nowhere then she will need to sell stuff individually online. The big machine might be sold to a local body shop. If she lives near a large city then she can sell most of it locally.

    Authentic Nazi paraphernalia commands a premium.

    the large thing is most likely some type of sand blaster.....i would look at marketplace on facebook....easy to list...no cost for listing...or go with an estate sell....they will take a percentage but will do the advertising etc...for the mechanics tools you may want to contact a local community collage and see if their vocational class might buy it or if it can be donated for a tax deduction

    facebook has online garage sales for each community, and stuff in nearby communities sells in minutes sometimes...we've unloaded stuff so easily

    also letgo is an app that works really easily for selling things.

    I don't know where you get that idea. I've seen Nazi stuff on eBay. I used it to look up a Hitler Youth dagger in my father's effects (like this one on eBay right now) to get an idea of its value. It turned out to be a fake but I did get twenty bucks for it at the yard/estate sale.
