$600 Doll. Seriously.

$600 Doll.  Seriously.

Even better if you view her large. Photograph taken at an antique store off of 19th St. in the Houston Heights.

We had a Flickr meetup the other day, and when we were out on our photo hunt we found an antique shop on a side street. The shop owner led me to the antique dolls to take their photograph. I had already spotted them, and was glad he was ok with me taking pictures.

I started snapping photos. I took pictures from many different angles. I moved this doll off the shelf – carefully – as her legs were messing up the background in another shot.

It wasn’t until I pulled her down that I spotted the SIX HUNDRED DOLLAR price tag. $600. I might have gasped out loud.

Turns out it is a vintage Madame Alexander doll from the 1940s. Or that is what he said. Either way, $600 is a crazy, crazy price for a doll.

I have a bunch of Madame Alexander dolls–they aren’t that old, but they’re supposedly valuable. At one point, my mom and I fought because I wanted to sell them. I doubt any are worth $600 though; I played with them alot.

My mother has a doll that’s got to be about that much. It’s basically “life size” – about the size of a toddler and was an antique when SHE was a kid. The doll is either cool or creepy depending on how you look at it – it’s very “life like” and even has real human hair on it’s head. My mom said that when she used to push the doll in a stroller, people would think she was pushing a younger sibling.
