What in the World Did I Just Inherit…?

teakettleIf your globe-trotting great uncle happens to be a collector of culturally-significant teakettles, you may find yourself one day inheriting lots and lots of teakettles. Just be thankful he wasn’t into obscure instruments of torture (of great historical value). But then again, if he was, your problem is the same: You have your own stuff. You can’t just throw his legacy away, but you definitely can’t keep it in your living room.

The history of inheriting stuff from parents and grandparents and even long-lost relatives is fraught with outrage and excitement. In ye olden days around the world, laws of primogeniture kept all the property in the hands of a firstborn legitimate son. Daughters, younger sons, illegitimate sons, and other relatives? Sorry; not for you! Notorious and vicious feuds over “who gets what after Dad dies” have plagued mankind since the dawn of time. Look no further than the Bible—or your daily newspaper. Remember the Anna Nicole Smith legal battle? Inheritance drama is still going strong!

But inheriting a lot of money isn’t your problem (though you wish it were). “Teakettles” are.

The true dilemma—keep, or toss—attacks when the inheritance is just not something you appreciate quite as much as the deceased did. Some bequests are weird. There’s even a TV show on Fox called Strange Inheritances that provides modern-day examples of…well, strange inheritances.

We hope that you will never be gifted, say, a collection of dead sea turtles, or human skin with which to make two patriotic drums, or Napoleon’s hair in a locket. Yes; three real examples. On a more fictional bent, we hope you will never inherit a cursed Egyptian mummy that seeks to destroy you. Cursed artifacts or jewelry you should probably mail to the Smithsonian immediately.

For everything else, we recommend self-storage. Your uncle’s handmade teakettles would fit in nicely at STORBOX, which has units of all sizes to accommodate even the largest eclectic collection. We have friendly staff available 24/7 and moving supplies to help with the process. Call (626) 407-3439 to speak to a friendly storage counselor today.
