eBay Portraits, the Faded and Damaged One
99 cents and a couple of bucks for shipping. So, did I get my money's worth? Had I found this one in a store, maybe $2. Mostly because I like the weird headdress the little girl is wearing. I suspect it's something ethnic, rather than a fashion statement. Maybe a dollar for the one with tape and 50 cents for the damaged, mother daughter portrait. And I would have probably passed on the reproduction. On the other hand, I was in an antique mall this afternoon and bought ten snapshots for $5, all of which I prefer to the four eBay portraits. So, you pay your money and takes your chances, as the Carneys say.
