A Surprise Garage Sale Find!

Hi there everyone!

Today I’m here to show you the surprise find I mentioned in my Slow Cooker Craft post!

Eek!

So here’s some context.

Lately I’ve been interested in Hearts for Hearts dolls, specifically Consuelo, their Mexican doll. (What do you mean I just gave it away??) They are so pretty, and are a good size for little sisters for AG dolls.

So, lo and behold, as I was walking through a garage sale, there was a Consuelo doll sitting there, being sold for $1! 😮

And as you can probably guess, I bought her!

Meet Consuelo! 🙂

She came with her meet shirt, shorts from another doll (I believe they are Zelia’s shorts), the Hearts for Hearts bracelet (on her as a necklace), a yellow stretchy bracelet, and also a pair of underwear. She didn’t come with shoes or earrings.

 

She was actually in pretty good condition!

I didn’t have to do much. I basically cleaned off her vinyl, washed her clothes, and washed, brushed, and conditioned her hair.

And here she is after!

I’m excited and thankful to have found her! She was a fun surprise.

Here she is with Caroline! I’m not sure if Consuelo should be the dolls’ sister or cousin.

Pardon this last picture’s quality

 

That’s about all for now! I hope you enjoyed seeing this fun find! Stay tuned for a photoshoot I got of Consuelo, sometime soon!

 

Do you like garage sales? Should Consuelo be a sister or cousin? What’s a fun find (whether a doll, trinket or other) that you have gotten while thrifting or ‘garage sale-ing’?

 

I’m thankful for this surprise, and I hope you enjoyed seeing her, too; however, it is always good to be reminded that there is so much to be thankful for, with or without these things!

On this topic, don’t forget to add things you are thankful for in my Basket of Thankfulness activity! There’s only a few more days until Thanksgiving!

 

Have a blessed day!
