The great thing about this hobby is that, as expensive as it can be (and is, let’s not be irrational now), there are always bargains to be found. But a bargain is only a bargain to the person who’s doing the buying. It doesn’t actually matter if other people think that it’s also a great deal or if everyone else thinks that it’s way overpriced. All that matters is what you think about whatever it is that you happened to have bought.
For instance, a $500 doll may seem like a really good bargain for some, but it may have hit the ceiling and gone through the price-limit roof for others. But it is all matter of relativity. Some things are bargains, other things are not – but it all depends on your perception of whatever it is that you’re looking at and hoping to buy.
My best dolly ‘bargain’ is, and always will be, this lovely lady. She cost me many pretty pennies, that is true – but at the same time I wouldn’t trade Prim away for anything and that, to me, makes her one of the best purchases that I had ever made. It also helped that I got a ‘minor’ discount for buying both her and her blonde TLC sister (Lillian). (Plus the fact that I could pick her up in person, gush over her cute little face and play with her absurdly frizzy hair was just a major bonus – and, thus, sealed the deal. As soon as I held her I knew I wasn’t going to let her go.)
What was your best dolly bargain?
(And free or gifted doesn’t count as a bargain, folks. It has to be something that you actually paid some money for.)
