A shout out to Nancy for helping me find out what this was.
They are Maori nesting dolls from New Zealand called Whanau dolls. I had a hard time finding out myself what they were. I was thinking aborigine from Australia, so I was close. But thanks Nancy for the help. (And glad you are feeling better)They sold over the weekend for full asking price and they are going to Australia. I think if they do any more traveling they will need a passport. And I just noticed that I misspelled New Zealand in my listing. Duh!!! (That was the sound of me hitting my head with my hand) Also taking the trip to Australia is this:
|Sold for $6, not much but it was free!|
Gosh, I love the free section.
I stopped in at my local GW last week while out doing errands. I hate it when I pick out something, this time a nice Nike workout tank top, and when I get it to the counter I am told "This should have been hanging up". Meaning, I want to charge you $3.29 for it instead of $1.39. What I wanted to say was that you should have hung it up. But I was just about to say no thanks when the clerk said that since I had several things that should have been hung up and that it was their mistake, she would charge me the bin price instead of the hanging price. Yeah!! I know it is a battle for the clerks because some people take things off hangers and dump them in the bin expecting to get bin price. But I don't do that and I would think that these employees, who have been there a while, would know where things should go. Sure, they are swamped with donations now and things get tossed here and there because they have a limited amount of time to get the donations out on the floor and a limited amount of personnel.
This little speech from a clerk about the hanging or not hanging item is the same clerk who dumped a pair of cowboy boots on the shoe rack with horse poop and straw still clinging to the bottom. I know because last week I purchased these boots and they were loaded with dried horse poop and straw and totally dirty. I ain't afraid of no dirt, or horse poop!!!
|They cleaned up really well and sold for $43|
Meanwhile, I'm trying to find an excuse to go thrifting this week. Any ideas?
