Flavas Concert Awards Tre, accessories include an Afro wig
I marked Flavas Choice Awards Tre off my doll wish list this past Tuesday during the tornadic storms that occurred in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. By the grace of God, I nor anyone I know was affected by the high winds, torrential rains, or even worse, the tornadoes that struck that day. Reportedly, there were 13.
At around 2 p.m., however, after the emergency response system sirens had been blaring like Gabriel's trumpet throughout the morning and well into the afternoon, the rains came pouring down in my area coupled with extremely high winds. I was just about to power down my computer when I realized the auction in my eBay watch for Flavas Choice Awards Tre was scheduled to end in minutes.
I discovered Tre on February 18, 2010, in a blog post written by the playscale and action figure queen, D7ana, author of the blog, A Philly Collector of Playscale Dolls and Action Figures*. It was right then and there that I named and claimed Tre!
Shortly after that post, D7ana began selling some of her dolls. I knew it was doubtful, but I asked if her selling plans included Concert Tre. Disappointed by her, "No" answer, Tre remained on my wish list and included in my eBay alerts. It took a while, but he finally showed up in an eBay listing last week, "finally," I thought. I added him to my eBay watch and hoped to be his high bidder.
This past Tuesday afternoon, in the midst of the previously mentioned storm, after remembering I needed to win Tre's auction that would be ending in minutes, I immediately went to the bid page before powering down my computer. There was only one bidder. I hurriedly placed my maximum bid and hit the "place bid button" after counting down the minutes to the last few seconds of the auction.
Those wondrous four words: You won this auction, gave me a a few seconds of relief, but worry resumed over the severe weather situation I still faced. I powered down my computer and continued to watch and wait on the storm to blow over as I prayed and chanted, "peace, be still." Eventually, thank God, it blew over and there was peace.
