MEGO's Found in the WILD???!!!
I was told years ago By DaveMC and Palitoy. During the first MM I attended. That stories of Mego Discoverys should be shared in order to give other hope that they too might get lucky and find a Mego bit to add to thier collection. So I thought I'd try this thread and see if others can add to it.
Mine just happened yesterday (2-12-12). I ran over to our local (Sell by the pound) Goodwill. I didnt think I'd be finding much as it looked pretty picked over and the crowd was pretty big. In one of the bin's of junk. I noticed a mix of old Barbie furniture and bits. When I began to sort threw it, I found a purple jumpsuit. Quickly I recognised it as a Dina Mite suit. I began to sort deeper through the mix of doll items. After an extended search of that bin and the Nieghboring ones. I realized either someone had found Dina before me or she was never there to begin with. My detailed search had gained attention though and the regular Vultures soon where flocking nearby to see what gained my attention. Later I checked the suit and found the little Mego tag stitched into the seemwork. Although the doll was Nowhere to be seen. It was cool as hecks to find something Mego related once again. I hope others have stories to share and better ones at that.
