Last time I mentioned a case of Barbie items that I bought for $10. I sorted through and found a Skipper doll with some outfits, a Bubble cut Barbie plus some outfits and some Ken clothes. It was fun to look through. I like the older outfits with the snaps and tiny zippers they used instead of the velcro they use today.
On Saturday I went to a large sale that I have been to many times before. It is in a very nice neighborhood and they hold it twice a year. Each time I’ve gone it has gotten worse and worse as far as finding things to sell. I suspect that it is pre shopped by volunteers or something. So this time I actually did not purchase one single item : ( Did I mention that I got up at 6:00 AM to get there early?
Earlier in the week, on Thursday night, I went to a church sale that opened at 7PM. I was able to find some items there. I found some lovely dolls. One is a French doll called Poupee Bella. It think poupee means doll or puppet. She has beautiful clothes and is very pretty. Another doll I found is a flower girl doll with a felt body and felt hands. She has no markings on her but she looks to be from the 70’s or so. In the plush pile there was a little Steiff bear. I got very excited when I saw the yellow tag and ear button. The sign said “stuffed animals $.50.” When I brought him up to purchase him the lady said “Do you know what this is?” I said “Yes – it’s a Steiff bear.” It think she was having a hard time selling it to me for $.50. It is really not even that valuable anyway but I was excited to get it. The best find there was a box of He Man figures. It was very dirty but I washed them all and found there were about 20 figures and accessories. They are from the 80’s and some eighties toys can do well.
Friday afternoon I went to a local community sale. It had started at 9 am and I didn’t get there until 3:30. Usually this results in no finds but sometimes you can still get a treasure later in the day. I went to the toy area and there was a box of doll clothes. I saw a pretty blue dress that was very well made and thought of the American Girl doll Felicity. Sure enough, there were 6 pieces of Felicity’s clothes in the box. They were 2 for $1. Happy dance!
Hope you are enjoying good weather and fun finds!!
