I was literally screaming and running wildly about yesterday…
Ok, lets just say there will be a lot of excitedness in this post.
So I was bored at my house on Saturday, just posted, and my grandma was staying there. She and my two aunts were going shopping so asked and of course I came with. We got lasagna and ravioli, but that isn’t the best part.
So we go to an antique shop at a small old fashioned town about 45 minutes away from my house, and we walk though it.
Basically a bunch of junk people got out pf their houses so that they were not hoarders any longer. It was REALLY big, all these nooks and crannies, probably as big as an Old Navy store. I see this mini shopping cart, I’m thinking of buying it, until I come to this one nook at the very back of the store. There’s a lot of junk scattered around on shelves and things, but when I see it, I know exactly what it is.
I see Molly’s Retired Red bed.
I look at it, it’s BEAUTIFUL. One problem though: there’s a taxidermy puppy sitting on it.
Eew. Gross. I take my sleeve over my hand so I don’t touch it and flick it off the bed. Molly’s bed is completely intact, just missing the rug and the two pillows. On the price tag in cursive handwriting is…
American Girl Bed $29.00
TWENTY NINE BUCKS.
It was sold in 2012, my oldest catalog for 65 bucks, and if AG still sold it it would probably be 80-90 bucks. Sounds like a heck of a deal to me. So I asked grandma because I’m broke from the AG store, and I HAVE IT NOW.
Here are some Ebay listings I found:
I got a good deal.
Now, it’s not in mint condition of course, mostly because of the poor taxidermy puppy, and that is why the bedding is in the wash right now. I used a lint roller on the upholstery and mattress, and it has the AG tag on it, and I’m so excited I don’t even know how I’m going to fit it in my doll room…
Also, it has a small crack in the plastic bed structure, but I’ll take a hot glue gun to it. It has a little stain on the back of the headboard, but you won’t be able to see it unless you look closely, so it’s in pretty good shape if you ask me!
I have been waiting FOREVER to find an awesome AG deal somewhere weird, and I finally did just that!
I’m VERY excited!
There was an old lady that worked at the store who saw me carrying the bed all excited, and she came up to me and told me it was her granddaughter’s and she was SO happy it was in the hands of someone who would love it just as much as she did!
Now, I have a question for you guys:
What kind of room do you think I should make with it? A Molly room? A sporty room for Kit? Just a room? A photography room? Tell me what I should do with it in the comments!
