Just Out For a Walk with My Giant Troll Doll

I guess I am going through garage sale withdrawal. I came across an ad Saturday which was titled Estate Liquidation! They stated they had bought out 7 estates last month and will be getting rid of everything priced .50 to $50!!! Well, that was the basic idea of the ad anyways. I figured it was a bit of an exaggeration but 7 estates? Surely there is something of interest to look at!? I was correct about the exaggeration. I'm pretty sure 1/4 of my "estate" is more than they were selling but my brother spotted this guy as soon as we walked in so it wasn't a waste of time.

He was $10 but is huge at over 16" and he is made by Dam so I'm sure he was very expensive 20-ish years ago when he was new. Now, maybe he is worth the $10 I paid? Especially since his bright yellow shirt was mostly eaten away by a mouse. But he obviously needed adopted plus I wanted to freak out Mark when he got home by sitting this guy on the couch.
Upon purchase the seller asked if I wanted a bag. Nah, I don't need to waste plastic. Then I remembered we had parked a block away from the shop in a busy downtown area.  I got a few odd stares but meh, I'll assume they promptly forgot. If I had been holding a conversation or dancing with him maybe it would have stuck in their memory better.

 He looks happy to be amongst some other freakishly large friends and is probably the cutest of the bunch...if one can consider trolls cute that is.
