    Sorry to read about your sister. Why don't you put it on ebay as a job lot? There are plenty of people who would be happy to buy up a large amount and sell it on individually. Failing that is there a local craft group/Scout pack/after school club or care home who would be happy to take it all off your hands? Or even a local charity shop?

    Just noticed you put the deliveries are still arriving, if it is from one site she may have a monthly order so you may need to ring them to cancel it, and they may even take an unopened delivery back and refund giving the circumstances.
    I think the ebay idea sounds a good option, if someone comes they may only take what they think they could sell and you could donate the rest to one of the group's or charities another lady mentioned in a previous post.
    Sorry for your loss btw.

    I am so sorry for your loss, what an awful time for you and then having to deal with all of this.

    Claire's suggestion is very good and also, if you check any recent items that have arrived for dates of return. The TV channel such as Hochanda usually give you a 14 day return policy and if it is Create & Craft I can give you a direct number (freephone) for customer services who I have found to be extremely good and very understanding, I am sure they would help, especially under these circumstances. Also, if she has ordered from Amazon they list a 'return by' date on their site which is usually a month. Are you her executor or do you have Lasting Power of Attorney, if so you will be able to get access to her accounts?

    I hope under the circumstances there won't be any problem on the site with my mentioning certain tv channels, these are exceptional circumstances. Do you have any family members who could store some the items for you just to give you some breathing space?

    Please let us know how you get on and hopefully others will come along and have different and better suggestions but for now, I'd try to return anything that you possibly can.

    My apologies for mentioning certain TV channels.

    No problems, Susie. Thank you for your helpful advice. I agree it is worth contacting customer services of the TV companies about the unopened stuff.

    I am admin on a free selling site on Facebook - please PM me if I can help. There is the selling thread on here also, of course, but I do understand it is very quiet.
