Posted October 04, 2018 05:03:58A toy story was sold at a flea market in Sydney’s south-west for $30,000.
But a little girl named Rosie had to leave the store when she became upset at the price tag and walked into a shop to find out what was going on.
“I was walking to the counter, looking for the box of toys and the woman said, ‘I’m sorry, but we can’t sell that for $20,000,'” Rosie told 7.30.
“She said it was just a toy.
I said, well, it’s my story.”
Rosie was sold a second toy at the same store for $10,000, but she didn’t know what it was until the store manager came to pick it up.
“He said it wasn’t a toy, it was a piece of paper,” Rosie said.
“Then he said, why not go and find out, and he did.
I was crying and I said to him, ‘Well, if you have the money, come and pick me up.'”
He came and picked me up and took me to the next toy store, where he gave me another toy for $3,000.
“When the story broke on ABC Radio, the ABC’s Victoria Jones said it went viral and the price dropped to $20.”
Rosie’s story is a bit of a classic tale of how we can change a child’s life in a moment,” Ms Jones said.
