Well, two new folks have moved into town. Meet Esmerelda:
Her friend Oscar has also moved into town...
He's a packrat, and really into antiques. In fact, he's been known to wear some vintage early 1900s clothes. I don't know how he can stand wearing a suit in the middle of the summer, but I suppose if he isn't complaining, then neither should I. Anyway, like I said...he's a bit of a packrat:
Esmerelda: "Well, don't look at me..."
Oscar: "Awww, come on. I'll give you 10% off at my antique store!"
So everything shown above came in an AMAZING lot I received from a seller on eBay. I was looking at the listing, staring wistfully at the items, thinking it wouldn't be feasible to spend money on so many minis right now. Jason saw what I was looking at and decided to bid on it for me and he won! Yay! I was so excited to get all this stuff, and I love the dolls! Even though Oscar's wardrobe is a little dated, I think I can weave a story to make it work. Esmerelda's clothes translate nicely to a hippie/new agey style, especially when I make her some jewelry. :)
Here's the rest of the stuff in the lot:
Tune in for more adventures, when Oscar and Esmerelda check out their new digs and visit some of the other houses in the area. ;)
