Vintage Metal Western Horse Toy
Dipping my toe back in the eBay shopping market. I swear they changed the format again, as I was shopping today. Used to be a little secondary search window at the top, right, now that's gone.
At any rate, I snagged this charming little vintage metal western horse toy with great patina for only $0.99 US. Big buy!
I have a similar vintage or antique metal racehorse Mom gave me years ago. So this guy will fit right in.
I checked all my usual categories on eBay and find I am more selective than ever. I don't want "stuff" but only things I cannot live without.
Was tempted to bid on a vintage red slipper chair. The price was right as was shipping, but when I inquired about musty or moldy scents, the seller not only dodged the question but said a "bad smell" was no reason for a return.
Wow! Lost a sale!
I bought a beautiful vintage slipper chair a couple years ago on eBay, and it had a heavy musty smell. No matter what I tried, there was no getting rid of that smell! It's been in the dry heat here long enough where the smell is not noticeable much anymore, but I'm not going through that again. No thanks!
I hope all my blog friends are doing well!
