An Amazing Rummage Sale Find!
I have trouble walking away from American Indian items, no matter how kitschy they may be. My Grandmother's maiden name was Hawk, and I've always been told she was part American Indian. In spite of not having official documentation, I have a family tree that goes back to where the name entered my family, and that has always been enough for me. This 18" tall molded plaster bust jumped out at me as I entered the tiny south Jersey country church rummage sale. I was prepared for a higher price, but found the seller had just marked him down to $1.00. As it turns out, she could not make change for my $20.00 bill, so I offered to pay her $1.00 in change. As I counted that out, I ended up with only 90 cents. She said "That's OK, just give me whatever you have" so I got him for only 90 cents. My husband just smiles and shakes his head, but I say "Whatta buy"!
