Accordion Collection Squeezed out

Caroline Hunt had a serious accordion habit, but now her collection of 300 is looking for a new home.

Caroline embarked on her mission to assemble the world's biggest squeezebox collection 18 years ago and her dream was to open a special museum devoted solely to accordions, but that did not happen.

Caroline said:

"For the last three or four years I've had two very kind friends who have helped me to store them - but I can't impose on them forever. "And accordions have to be kept in a decent climate. Damp is no good. "I'd like to see them in a small community museum, with parking nearby - as accordion players tend to be a bit older."

Please give me whatever feedback comes to mind via tamfromrampant@gmail.com.
