These are some of my best doll finds for 2019. This category includes doll clothes, furniture and accessories. This first doll was found at a community tag sale. I picked her up because I thought the pictures on the box were beautiful and she looked lovely with her pink ribbons attaching her to the box. She was a souvenir from the United Nations. She sold for a best offer of $31.
This item came in a ziplock bag marked American Girl. I believe it was $5. It is a charming little puppet stage with small wooden marionettes. One of the marionettes had a broken string. It was from the set “Church Fair Fun” for the doll Addy. It sold for a best offer of $55.
The next find was from the thrift store. I believe she was marked $6.99. This is a Chloe doll from the Madeline doll collection by Eden. Because she was new in her box she brought $69.99.
The next find was a collection of Liddle Kiddles dolls that I bought at an estate sale for $50. There were several Liddle Kiddles sets included in this collection as well as the castle dollhouse which sold for $50 on its own. A few of the sets like the one pictured below with Trikey Triddle, sold for $30.
Included in this lot of dolls was a small (about 4″) rather plain looking doll that didn’t look like a Liddle Kiddles doll. She had a pretty dress on that was tagged “Floradora.” I have never seen this doll before and had a hard time researching her but when I finally found a sold example, the one I saw sold for $90. I priced her at $99 and she sold in a few days.
I found some vintage doll furniture at one of the first sales I attended in 2019. I believe I paid $5 for the set. They had a mid century modern look to them and were very well made of wood and fabric. They were marked Mattel on the bottom and I believe they were from the late 50s or early 60s. Some people say that they were made for Barbie but the scale looks wrong to me. The table and chairs sold for $50 and the couch sold for $65.
The next doll was an estate sale find that I bought for $5. She is an Emerald Enchanting Witch doll by Girls World. She has wonderful sparkling green eyes. I had no idea about her until I looked her up on my phone when I was at this sale. She sold for $95. She would have sold for more if she had more of her accessories like her shoes and hat. She is another small doll measuring about 6″ tall.
This next doll was hanging in a bag on the wall at the thrift store for $4.99. She was wearing what looked like a stewardess outfit but all I could tell from the way she looked was that she was an older doll. When I got her home I saw that her secret identity was Wonder Woman. She was a Mego doll from 1975. She was made to look like Linda Carter who starred in the show. Despite some damage and discolorations, she sold for $95.
American Girl dolls don’t sell as well as they used to for me. I don’t pick them up unless they are very cheap or special. This Molly doll was $10 at the thrift store. I picked her up because she has a white body which means she is an early doll. She sold for $125.
This last find was from a church sale. I picked up a bag of doll clothes for $5. Many of the clothes were for the Italian Furga dolls from the 1960s. Some were labeled and some were not so I had to do research in order to identify them. This was one of my best finds ever because many of these outfits and dresses sold for over $100. Some of them have very iconic 1960s mod styling.
Those are my top doll finds for 2019! I am always learning about new dolls and brands. I hope that 2020 will be as exciting!
