How long do you have to hold an item after you sold it and it was paid for but never picked up?

I sold an item a year ago and it was paid for.  It was pick up only and I have contacted the buyer a few times.  How long do you have to hold an item after you sold it and it was paid for but never picked up?

A person purchased an item a year ago from me, it has been paid in full but he has never picked it up. I have contacted him several times about picking it up and he keeps saying he is coming but never shows up. Am I legally allowed to sell to another person who wanted this item.

A year is plenty long. Just refund the payment and you can move on.
