Another Hidden Gem

Yesterday I went to Goodwill with my sister and her son,  to take advantage of Dollar Thursday.  It was an interesting day, we got off the bus only to realize that my sister had left her diaper bag on it.  We had to wait for it to come back around to see if it was still there, luckily it was.

Anyway I managed to find a couple of items.  A pair of gray knee socks, un-worn and the perfect shade of gray because it goes with everything but doesn’t make me look frumpy.  I also found this simple little doll for only a dollar.  Her hair is messed up, her dress is horrible, and she has some really bad cracks on her face.
