Man Inherits 13,000 Clown Items
Inheriting a collection of more than 13,000 clown items and figuring out what to do with it is enough to leave you with a sad face.
Richard Levine is now trying to wrap his head around the unusual pickle he inherited when his father-in-law and business partner died two years ago and left him essentially a warehouse full of curated items of buffoonery.
There are clown dolls with faces of joy and sorrow. Clown paintings, some more colorful than others. Clown figurines and clown puppets, some tiny, some huge, some very disturbing.
There are clown photographs, clown books and clown costumes.
Some stuff are worth a lot, while others stuff merit only a laugh.
“They need to be in a museum or something, not in some warehouse,” said Levine, 58 of Fort Lauderdale.
