Even though Lori and I both know how to change a tire in theory,neither of us had never done it. As it turns out, we couldn't have done it anyway. The wheel had corroded and the guy had a really hard time getting the old one off to put the new one on. He had a can of penetrating oil in his truck and had to spry loads of it on the wheel. He kicked it and kicked it, and finally had to resort to a sledge hammer, which he also luckily happened to have. In the end he wouldn't even take anything for helping us. What a nice guy.
Well, after that adventure story, here's the haul from the flea market:
I got this 1/6 scale kettle and cooking pot for $1 each...
I could have also bought a tankard and a coffee pot, but they didn't have bottoms,and I like realism.
...I got all 3 of these for $1: two 1/6 scale jugs and a pitcher...
I got this red haired Kelly doll...
|Anybody recognize which one she is?|
|Her curly hair has a part down the back.|
|Definitely NOT her original outfit!|

She needs a bit more work, but I did sort her hair out, back to her original 'do.
|Seen from the side she has a weird, alien shaped head.|
|The maroon wooden cupboard was a recent Goodwill find for $2|
I also got a couple of other small dolls and one larger one that we'll see soon.
