A Rocking Goat? Huh, Never Seen One Of These Before...You? Luckily That Cute Face Don't Eat Much! He's Just Hoping For A New Family Soon! Status: Soon To Be Available.
Nope, this little guy didn't come from the Wentzville flea as you might have guessed. He was found languishing at the Goodwill thrift store! We hit a couple of thrifts after we go to the fleas, especially if we don't find too many items at the flea.
He's not perfect by any means. The rattan weaving on the seat is broken in a couple of places but it
looks like it'll be an easy(ish) repair. The rattan that makes up the seat doesn't wrap around the frame
of the seat like you'd expect and it can all be removed without the rattan that does wrap around the
frame being removed. This means that the broken rattan Can be removed and replaced!
I guess this could technically be a rocking horse but I think it looks like a little goat. Have you ever
seen a rattan toy like this before? I grabbed it up as soon as I saw it. I looked it up on eBay and it's
not terribly valuable...but I'm sure somebody out there will light up when they find it in the booth at
the green shag. Heck it might even end up under somebody's Christmas tree this winter!
Know anything about that G with a crown sticker? I'm wondering where this was made? That
"inspected" sticker doesn't look Asian and I haven't found any other markings or labels. A number
of these rocking "horses" (I still think it looks more like a billy goat!) were recently featured on
Apartment Therapy, too. I guess I got lucky!
