The original Bernie Sanders crochet doll just sold for $20K, and we know where you can get one for $30 in El Paso.

Politics aside, all the Bernie Sanders memes and crochet dolls are the exact feel-good moments of levity that we all needed.

Thanks to the viral Bernie Sanders memes, one woman (Tobey Time Crochet) was inspired to make a crochet doll of the Vermont Senator. The day after the Inauguration, she put it up for auction on eBay, selling it recently for over $20K with all the proceeds benefitting Meals on Wheels America.

The Bernie Sanders crochet dolls have become a hot commodity, and one crafty El Pasoan is making and selling them on Instagram.
