First the mansion.
Then the high rise pad.
How did I get such a great bargain -- four of each (forty dollars a piece each)? As I said Friday, Nolanda e-mailed me and suggested I try Craigs List. She'd been using Ebay and the prices were way too high. She lucked onto Craigs List and shared it with me.
I was asked about the Barbie house I won on Ebay.
They call that three stories due to the cottage on the third 'floor' (also known as the roof). That cottage, detaches, by the way. My granddaughter that lives with me is going to love it for the staircase. That's her favorite thing about the mansion. She's not really fond of the elevator in the pad. But she loves stairs. So that will be her favorite thing about this one.
I am hoping it arrives before Friday, due to Memorial Day.
The worst thing about the dollhouses is that my granddaughter no longer sleeps in her own bed. Every morning, I've found her asleep next to the dollhouses. I put her to bed and read to her, so I know she falls asleep in bed. But at some point, she wakes up and moves to the floor to sleep by her doll houses. She loves them.
Am I turning my back on Ebay? Heck nah. I just think you can get a better price on Barbie structures at Craig's List.
