Timing is everything right? I've heard that said a lot. I'm in agreement, especially in this case. I quickly popped in to a local op shop last week , the shop is one I consider to be over priced - all of the time. I still go in, just in case. I spotted this wee wooden Russian Doll, in the "to be priced" pile -The manager was on her lunch break, presumably, as she was no where to be seen. So I asked the "fill in" person "how much please?" - "One dollar" was the reply.
I snapped it up! I've long held a fascination for Russian Dolls, I'm pretty sure it's to do with a wee skit on Sesame Street that I remember from my childhood. It's a Russian Doll, that dances about and opens up to reveal all the mini dolls inside, they in turn dance all about and then pop back inside the big doll. Do you know it?
I know if the manager was there, she would have charged LOTS more for such a collectible. Timing IS everything.
