Little Treasure found in Stars

I was walking home yesterday morning after meeting some friends for coffee, and I stopped in at Stars, a local antique and collectors mall.  This is not something I usually do, but I saw a doll in the window that interested me, so I wanted a closer look.  Then I was hooked, I had to look through the entire store.  Now, this was no little feat.  There are many, many, many wonderful things to look at, even things that don't normally interest me became interesting when displayed in an artistic way.

For the most part I was able to go through the store without finding anything that I wanted, but then I came to a booth with a lot of Mickey Mouse stuff in it.  I used to be a big Mickey Mouse fan, so I had to take a closer look.  Everything there was pretty overpriced, so I was on my way out when I spotted a little treasure tucked far away in the back of a shelf.   I gasped, took a closer look, then I picked it up.

It was a little Nancy Ann storybook doll!  I couldn't believe my luck!  She was in excellent condition, and unlike the other dolls that Baby Cat and I have made by the same company, she's hard plastic instead of bisque.  The most amazing thing of all was that she was priced under $5.00!  So, I just had to buy her!

I don't have a name for her yet, so if you have one you think will fit her, let me know.

 So, the moral of the story is, you can find a little treasure just about anywhere if you take the time to look.   And real treasure doesn't have to cost a fortune.

  1. I was at Stars with my daughter on Saturday! That place is amazing. We just walked around the periphery and didn't even go through the aisles. Glad you found a little treasure!
