WOW. Miss Cindy called today and said grab your camera and get over to this estate sale pronto. Of course I listened and was blown away. Upon entering the 60's style home--mounds and mounds of dolls piled four feet high on tables were visible. Imagine waist high Pope dolls in glass cases- 60's display dolls, flamenco fanned beauties, creepy cabbage patch kids trapped in plastic. These dolls were seriously everywhere the eye could roam. Down the hallways and into the back dusty bedroom- more more more dolls awaited. Little shelves practically collapsing from the armies of Napoleans and Indians and Dancers. Witnessing this alarming scene- was disturbing yet morbidly intoxicating, like no one would believe the immense clutter without proof. This made my mother's Xmas ornament/decoration collection look timid.
Even Shirley Temple was there-- at least 3 X over. Decked in her favorite lollipop gear. There were even glass cases with all the Beatles- Princess Di and Charles... Mother Teresa, Moses...
did I mention the Unsnatchable Kids?
Oh yeah...they encourage calling 911 and just saying no to strangers
The video does the tour better justice. Yes, there is a video.
And proof that even rock stars like to score a collectable space shuttle cabbage patch doll.
The owner of the dolls and house said that she was merely moving and would like to keep all of them...then she added that this was only a quarter of her collection.
Check out the Loot I scored there-- all for $3 dollars each or less!! WOW
