I went to the thrift store on my birthday, and I found a great surprise!
I had gone to this thrift store last week, and they had a few American Girl dolls for $75 each, but they were in carrying cases locked in a glass case so that I couldn't see which doll they were or what condition they were in.
I decided that I didn't want to go to the hassle of getting an employee to unlock the case, partly because of COVID and partly because the dolls I want are newer and unlikely to be donated to a thrift store.
This week, I tried going to the thrift store again on my birthday.
In among the porcelain dolls was a naked, sad Girl of Today #1 for only $25.
That was a price point I couldn't resist, so she came home with me.
Since she was naked and sad, I put her in some pajamas and posed her in Melody's bed so that she could get warmed up.
