Been a while since my last post…….I haven’t been going to thrift stores like I used to, but even so, there’s still a lot of dolls that I want to write about, just don’t have that much time. Anyway, this post is not about a prospective husband or bf that got away, what else could it be?
I was on my way out for a snack when I pass by a thrift store and saw the clerk starting to put up their new arrivals of toys and bags. From outside I could see their display and got curious on one item in the shelf. A doll still in her box, about 15″ tall, ghostly white color, long blond hair, faceless…..well almost. All she had on her face is a pair of “eyeless socket” and slightly shaped nose, she wears a long blue/black robe and I think I saw a mask and an apple inside her box……..I WANT HER!
I asked the clerk if its ok to buy the doll even though they are still closed, she told me to come back later when they open. So I did at exactly the time she said and hurriedly went inside. The doll is gone! I just don’t know how to feel at that moment, I wanted the doll so badly I scanned the whole store, discreetly check each customers who might be carrying the box…..but none of them has her! I stood there for a while until a man stooped beside me to check his stuff, and there she is! He has her already! I tapped the box he was holding and ask him that’s a doll? Almost like I want to demand “that’s my doll!!”
Anyway, since he has not yet paid for her, I asked the clerk if maybe …just maybe…she could sell it to me instead, am willing to add a few bucks just so I can have her…..but of course she said sorry, the man came in first and got the doll first.
I went home empty handed, feeling like I lost in a game……….kept thinking about the doll for a week. The doll’s name? Little Apple Dolls.. by artist Ufuoma Urie
The Doll I saw was Sine Of Souls
