Doll (at thrift) - $4. Doll's shoes (online) - $8. Why does this seem OK to me ?
You’re gonna laugh at me, but I just now bought my latest Elsa doll’s shoes – Snow Glow (i.e., toddler) Elsa’s – and paid twice for them what I paid for the doll. Ranks, but I have a thing about making sure a doll has her original shoes, even if she rarely wears them. I’m the same way, to a lesser extent, about the doll’s original clothing. Poor ‘Hi, Dottie’ still doesn’t have her issue jumper-dress, and I’ve had her for almost a decade now. I never have the $$ when I find it for a decent price, and don’t wanna pay $20. for a cheep vintage scrap of Mattel 70s when I have fundage. One day, the stars will align. . . meanwhile, Dottie at least has her orange shoes ! And SG Elsa will have her ice-inspired flats sometime next week.
Oh, and I got my $5. coupon from TRU Rewards today. I looked all over the place for how to access it, but there was nothing on the site, nothing to indicate I was entitled to a reward, nothing that said I’d get one ‘til I spent another $150. Kinda figures, a couple days after I buy something, boom, there it is. Well, since it’s good ‘til 20 April, I’m sure to find my way over there to use it. There’s two dolls I’m interested in. . . and if nothing else, they have candy at the one across town. . .
