I was telling my GF that I haven't found a concrete gnome in ages and then decided to check out ebay. Now the only time I ever saw concrete gnomes on ebay was about 5 years ago and they were up in Queensland (I'm in Victoria - that's a distance of say NY to FL) so I wasn't really very hopeful.
But then again, ya nevuh know.
And LO and Behold! Two of the most gorgeous vintage gnomes and only about 3 hours away! So I place my bid and got them for only $10 each. Too much, you say? Well, these are mega size gnomes! The smaller one is 19" tall and the other is 26" tall. And that tall one is HEAVY! I'm in Gnome Heaven!
I will not be touching up the paint on the bigger one, but will give the smaller one 'new shoes'. I'll get them out of my house probably in Spring. I'm enjoying looking at them too much right now! HA!
