Holy Family Circus! Antonio Vitali Is Tearing Up eBay Right Now

YOW.

When I first didn't bid on a pristine, complete set of Antonio Vitali's Wooden Family dolls made for Creative Playthings, in 2006, $51 was enough to scare me off.

When they sold for $229, I thought it was completely nuts.

Now, oh, how I wish I could buy those things for $229. Because eBay Powerseller Helene has a similar set of Vitali dolls, complete and beautiful, minus the box, AND WITH THREE DAYS LEFT TO GO, THEY ARE ALREADY $931.

I have a feeling my operating standard for completely nuts is about to get thrown out the window.
