It's not about money.  I would prefer to give the collection to a good
home, to people who I know.  You, Ruud and other people I have met or
known for long time can have it for free.  If I have to ship it, then
I'd like to have the cost of shipping and packaging.  But I wouldn't
really like to ship these heavy and somewhat brittle items.  It's not
only the packaging that would be a challenge.  I'd have to borrow a
car to transport the items to the shipping company, as I don't have a car.

Again, this is not urgent.  I'd like to get rid of the items by, say,
September 2010.  You could combine this with a summer holiday in
Finland, or a trip to the Assembly party, or whatever.  There are
several car ferries servicing Helsinki or southern Finland, at least
from ex-DDR, possibly also from Poland.  Or you can drive through the
Baltic and take the ferry from Tallinn to Helsinki.
