A Bathtub, You Say? Back in the early days when eBay was just a young fledgling company, we used to collect antique tin wind up toys. Back in those days, you had to search for what you collected - not just go on the Internet to find it. (& yes, we've just dated ourselves). We'd go all over looking for toys to add to our collection. A couple of our favorite places to search for new treasures were the huge antique show in Atlantic City, NJ (Atlantique City) which was held twice a year at the Old Convention Center on the Boardwalk and The Elephant's Trunk in New Milford, CT.
Inevitably, back then, we'd spot a toy that we'd never seen before. We'd be so excited about it and wonder what is it? Should we buy it ... now? or wait? As we continued walking around the show, without fail, we'd see spy another one at a different booth. Sometimes, there would be a few of them at the same show and other times ... it was just that one. What to do? What to do?
Why do we bring all this up? Well, the same thing happened to us recently with a bathtub. Yes! A bathtub!! It happened like this.
We were out showing homes to a buyer. When we got to the bathroom upstairs, we did a double take. Never saw a bathtub like this one.
Then just a few days ago, we're out showing homes to another buyer in another town and what do you think we saw??? You got it ... Another one, but in lavender!
It was just like when we used to see a toy that we'd never seen before. Never saw this bathtub before and then we saw another one just like it! A bathtub, you say? Yes, a bathtub!
