Still Gathering Bikes
I thought I was through buying doll bikes, but a trip to Hobby Lobby over a week ago, had me desiring at least one more bike.....the pink one with the basket. I waited a week to see if it would go on sale for 50% the following week. Yes, it did. That prompted me to buy the little red bike, too. I bought the tandem Barbie bike set the same day at the nearby Walmart. The clearance price of $15, still had me on the fence, but I will be able to use both the bodies for other dolls. Hopefully this summer I will be able to finally get the bike story underway.
These bikes were found in Hobby Lobby near the Route 66 items, that are normally near the picture frames. They retail for $15.99, but they are made of metal, and the metals go on 50% off sale quite frequently.
The pedals rotate freely. It has a permanent stand on the back wheel that could be removed with some pliers. I'm going to keep it in place.
This red bike reminds me of the bikes of my childhood. This will be given to some little boy here in town.
This may become Nikaya's bike. The handles are a little low for her, so I'm going to have to fit that.
Nicole is demoing this bike for me. This bike is too cool for school.
Side Note: I'm working on two large orders from my Etsy store, which is why I haven't been around as much. Things should return to normal in about two weeks.
