Today's Wonderful Thrift Store Find!
Today my bf and I stopped by the local Goodwill looking for bed rails. As we were passing by the area where they keep the oversized items, I spotted two little boys playing with, what I believed to be a Barbie house. I stopped in my tracks, knowing that I wasn't moving another inch until I had it in my hands. I didn't want to disturb their play, so I was waiting patiently for a few minutes. My bf said, "just ask them to move". So I did. One little boy even helped me fold it up. Turns out it is the Grand Hotel that I have been wanting forever. The tag said $8.58! Bet! It's mine. It's mine. It's mine.
There are quite a few pieces missing. It did come with the vanity/bed combo piece, but I forgot to take a picture of it because I didn't know where it was supposed to go. I love that it has a working elevator.
Behind the door on the second floor is this little phone room. This hotel also has sound. I think the phones actually ring and maybe light up. Not sure yet.
In this picture the elevator is on the second floor. It has supports so the dolls can stand.
So now I have to clean it up and get it ready for use. I hope to paint it one day, but I will not wait for that to happen before I use it. I'm pretty slow when it comes to repainting.
