How many times have any of us been out, we see something and have not a clue what we are looking at but your gut tells you...this is something cool? No, it may not bring you thousands of dollars when you turn it, but it is just "something"?
A few weeks back we saw this figurine. Now, when one uses the word "figurine" you would expect porcelain, bisque, etc., but not this one. It was in some sort of plastic or resin or something. No clue what but it was SO 60's or 70's that Mark and I could do nothing but buy it.
Note that when we bought her, there was no can - no hint of what she might be. Although we noticed, we had not a clue with the indentations were for in the base and in the hair.
I mean, look at this, how could one resist buying her?
A couple of days later I had the chance to begin a little research on her and I found nothing. Nada. And believe me, in doing my Google search I saw some pretty interesting photos especially when you enter "girl" "cowboy boots" "vintage". I'm sure you can only imagine.
After some searching I came up blank and so there she sat, on the mantel and waited as we tried to figure out what she was, for obviously, we did not know what she was.
This past weekend we found ourselves at a swap meet and as we gathered treasures a good portion of the day, we saw her. In an instant it became clear what she was.
Of course she came home with us as well along with her girlfriend and another guy. We could not resist.
Have not a clue yet on what they are worth or even if they are worth anything. Have not had a chance to really research them yet. But what we do know is that they are pieces of Americana and its coming to age.
On top of that, let's face it. They are fun and sexy and just SO American.
