As it turned out, I got the day off and went to the sale after all. While I stood outside for 30 minutes in the cold waiting for the sale to start, I talked to a few older retired women who knew the owner of the house. They said she had a lot of good stuff, but no antiques. Huh?! "What kind of stuff?", I asked. Well, it seems she had a lot of health issues, so she had 3 or 4 of everything. Everything meaning walkers, bathtub/shower chairs, those grabber things for hard to reach items. This was not sounding good.
As I entered the house, I quickly scanned each room and came to the conclusion that the dealer was right. There was nothing I was interested in. I had to push my way into a bedroom that seemed somewhat promising by the number of people in the room. Hmmm, the big collection in that room was approximately 32 pairs of size 9 Easy Spirit white shoes.
As I was leaving, I spotted one lonely item that was totally out of place in that house.
This composition baby doll.
She was not in the best condition.
But, just look at that sweet face! And those pretty turquoise eyes.
She even has a few pearly whites.
So, it just goes to show, you never know where you'll find your next treasure. As disappointed as I was that there were no size 7 Easy Spirits, I did leave with a treasure, after all. She was $14 plus tax.
She sits on a dresser where her raggedy dress is a perfect match to my dried hydrangeas.
