You’d think that having six kits (yes folks — six dollhouse kits) randomly stashed around the apartment, that should keep me busy for awhile. Considering how much I’d probably would end up spending for extras to complete each one (windows, door, flooring, wallpaper, etc).
But nope. Apparently that line of logic seems to fizzle the minute you bring up minis with me. Because so long as I’m connected to the Internet, I’ll be forever “shopping” around. And probably making the local US Postal delivery lady and the UPS/FedEx dude know my address in their sleep — there’s always a package at the front door. Even BK admits he’s gotten used to it. 🙂
Well, decided to look around at eBay for things, and ran across this ad. I had to rub my eyes a couple of times to make sure I wasn’t imagining it. Nope, it’s true — someone’s selling a Villa Sibi dollhouse on eBay. Granted, the seller’s put a starting amount of $650 despite the free shipping. But the cheapest I’ve seen online for this house is $750.
Is it awful that I WANT this house? Or is it worse that I want this more than I want a wedding dress for my own wedding? Part of me is seriously tempted to put the minimum bid. But then again, not sure how I’m gonna explain to BK how in the hell I managed to pay this unless I dipped into my now growing savings account — money that’s suppose to go to our nuptials 11 months from now.
Ach, guess I’ll have to make do and watch. And see which lucky bastard gets this house. 😦
Update as of November 10, 2010 — This Villa Sibi dollhouse got sold. Looks like someone opted to do the “Buy It Now” option on eBay and had $999.00 burning in their pocket….
