A Davie man is asking for help after inheriting a massive collection of clowns from his father-in-law.
Richard Levine said he's glad his father-in-law left the huge collection for him, but it's costing him $1,700 a month to store it.
Jack "Clown Jackey" Klein accumulated more than 13,000 dolls, pictures, and just about anything clown related.
“He just kept on buying more and more and more and before you know it, he spent over a million dollars on this stuff,” said Levine.
Klein bought so many clown pieces he opened a museum in Central Florida to show them all, filling it with 60 years worth of his finds. He called it "Clown Rushmore," and ran it himself till his death at 82.
”He was working up till the end -- that's how passionate and excited he was with his clown collection,” said Levine.
All the memorabilia was passed down to Levine.
“I brought six 30 foot truck loads back from Lake Wales to Davie,” said Levine.
Levine had to find warehouse space for boxes and boxes of clown clutter. Now, he's going through each and every box trying to get a handle on what he has.
He plans on keeping some of the collection, selling part of it to pay for storage costs, and giving some to kids.
“By giving them something and seeing that smile, that is worth a million bucks to me,” said Levine.
