Isn't she sweet? While I was cleaning her up, I discovered that she was wearing her origninal outfit and it had a tag in the neckline that said "Victoria" Madame Alexander. Then while I was brushing her hair (Lordy, did it need it) I noticed that her neck said ALEXANDER 1966. I've scored a Vintage Baby Victoria Doll! The first Baby Victoria's were named for Queen Victoria. Mine isn't worth much but I love her.
At the next sale we stopped at T1 hit the goldmine. He saw a table with a few gunstocks on it and when he saw one in particular his poker face completely left him. Now I've tried to teach these kids to haggle and have a good "I could care less if you sell this to me or not" face but T1 is just AWFUL at it! I made him walk away. Just walk away. We walked back to the car and discussed it. The stock had a $15.00 price tag on it. Neither of us knew it's worth but we had a good feeling about it. I gave T1 a ten dollar bill and told him to offer it, if he took it, it was ours,, if not,, we walk away. T1 agreed that if he took it,, it was fate.
He asked and the man was hesitant but it was getting late in the morning so he broke down and accepted the offer. The more he held it, the more he loved it. I figured at the very least they could play with it and maybe he could hang it on the wall.
When we came home and daddy looked it up and examined the markings we found that T1 had been correct, it's a 1916 WWI German Mauser Kar98 stock. Worth up to $200.00.
Pretty sweet no? Here's a picture. You have to understand,, T1's a gun NUT,, next to cars that is!
Not a bad day for $12.00 and gas!
