After my grandmother died in 1982, her desk went to Aunt Kay's. Now that she is gone I was offered the desk from my cousins. They are in all in San Diego, and I moved to Seattle years ago.
Although the desk is not a "real antique" (1940's era), I hated to see it go to Goodwill, so I made arrangements to have it sent to me.
I am now sitting at the desk typing up this note. Feels nice to be the third generation of women in my family to have the desk for everyday use.
Thanks, Uship, for making it easy.
