I resisted this doll show. I really did. The Integrity Convention had tapped out my financial resources. Fortunately, I've been selling quite a bit on The Doll Page. I left my credit cards and check book at home. I took just as much money as I had available to spend.
I knew I didn't need or want any more dolls. I was specifically looking for the Silkstone AA Evening Gown, maybe some Vintage, and possibly Ellowyne clothing. As usual, I take a quick trip around the whole room before making any purchases. I had seen the Silkie for $89, but that would've taken a big bite out of my funds. I also had found a couple really nice Vintage TNT dolls. Again, they were too pricey for me that day.
One seller, an older lady, was selling her personal collection of vintage clothing. I had been looking for some pack items. She had the orange body suit shirt, long skinny skirt, and pants. It came home with me. Here is one of my vintage bubbles wearing it:
After shopping with this seller, I still had money left for the Silkie. Unfortunately, she was gone. So, I went around a final time.
I guess I ended up buying a doll afterall. She was all of $10.
