Thrifty Cottage Find

Last weekend, during the St. Agatha Holiday Bazaar, I took some time to check out Thrifty Cottage.  Thrifty Cottage is a thrift shop owned and operated by St. Agatha Parish.  The proceeds go toward the maintenance of the parish church and school.  

Thrifty Cottage always has a sale within the Holiday Bazaar.  They have a room off  the main floor of the Bazaar where there are always bargains galore!  Almost every year we find something there that we can use for displays, or for our own Christmas decorating.  

This year I found this little darling.  

Zapf Baby Doll

This doll was laying on a shelf with several other, and I almost passed her by.  I just picked her up on a lark, and was surprised at how nice she was.  She's obviously been played with, but there's hardly a mark on her.  

She's a 19 inch Zapf baby doll, made in Germany.  The clothes she has on don't appear to be original, as there are no tags.  In fact, they look hand-made, but very well done.  But that doesn't bother me at all.  One of the reasons I bought her was because I was looking for a doll to crochet/sew clothing for.    This one's perfect.  She's got a soft body, vinyl arms, vinyl partial legs, and vinyl head.  She has sleep eyes, and painted on hair.    

Now the real question is, will I be unable to part with her once I've created a new wardrobe for her, or will I sell her?  

I guess we'll all just have to wait and see.
