Happy Mother's Day! Over 70,000

We are over 70,000 on this blog! Thank you! Happy Mother's Day to all, and may we have peace today. We pray for the little girls lost in Nigeria, and I will soon talk about Nigerian dolls in the spirit of peace and innocence that should belong to all young girls. Found a fantastic sale with dozens of doll parts, doll heads, antique and vintage dolls in need of repair and much more. I came away with an Alma, complete, bisque head perfect and sleeping glass eyes, a kid body for a Kestner, with the Kestner seal and stitched toes intact, another German bisque on a jointed compos body with wit and clothes. These were all under $100 or so. I bought another kid body with a damaged A & M 1894 head still attached. I found a Wendykins Alexander 8 in Germany in her box for 2.00; she needed restringing. One box of parts had four antique heads in it, one a patent washable P/M and one vintage Miss Revlon type head in it. On the last day everything was 75% off, and I found vintage hard plastic dolls and babies for 1.50, and a very good condition composition Princess Elizabeth type with clothes and wigs for 7.00, and Sunshine Family doll furniture and home, in original boxes, for 3.00 each. I was very happy to find a 16 in Minerva doll with the rare baby's head. I found the composition and wood Disney Pinocchio for 13.00, usually a 300-400 doll at auction. Years ago, I lost a bid on him and General MacArthur when they were in one lot. Now, after a little perseverance, I have both of them! I picked up some mint carnival dolls, a set of Renwal furniture, a vintage Barbie ponytail paper doll for .50 cents, and the Tutti house by Mattel for under 3.00. The red Barbie case with gorgeous original pink velvet Barbie gone and other small items in it for 3.00. An Effanbee Fluffy, 14 in., in her original Brownie costume [just like mine!] was 8.00. It pays to stop and look. I had driven by this sale near my job for some time, and never gone it. Turns out it is run by a good friend of mine, whose mother was a lovely lady who dealt in antique dolls. I got many fine dolls from her mom at various doll shows, and my mother knew and loved them, too. Small World.
