Anyway, this post starts off with a usual set up. I was over on Etsy seeing the new listings when I found someone listing a small lot of broken dolls. All together it added up to two dolls, but they were not the correct two dolls. One of them was all there, (but separate) but the other doll was two different dolls. They were broken but all the damage I could see were things I've repaired before. The best part was the price, it was only eight dollars including shipping. I really appreciate when people price things accordingly. You cannot believe the number of times that I find a totally trashed doll that someone is asking a fortune for. But this lot was a really nice bargain, so I quickly bought it.
It arrived when I was sick (a day later than it should have, it does not take 26 hours to get from Greensboro to my local post office). And just an example for how sick I was it arrived, someone brought it to me, and it took me several hours to open it. That never happens! Usually I tear into my mail with the gusto of a starving man getting a loaf of bread. And that was after I had been sick for a while and was on the mend.
Now let's start talking about what was in the bag instead of how I came to own the bag. Our first item
Our final item from the lot is a body, Quick Curl Francie's body to be exact. This body is actually the reason why I wanted this lot in the first place. I'm always in need of a Francie body. While the head was not included in the lot I know it belonged to Quick Curl Francie because she was being sold by the same seller in a different listing, she was just on a Walk Lively Miss America body and was listed for 30 bucks, which I did not have (and I really didn't want a Miss America body). Francie's leg was
However, I guess I can wait until then. It's not like I don't have plenty of projects to keep me busy until then. Including finishing up the small details on the dolls I just talked about. Not bad for eight bucks right? I got some really nice dolls for a really nice price, with not a lot of work.
Now where to find room for them!?!
