This weekend is the Fourth of July weekend. Happy Fourth everyone! There were no good sales here for me so I’m going to continue to write about the items I picked up at the big church sale last weekend.
There were 4 ziplocs filled with Barbie clothes. Each was marked $2. I saw a lot of the metal snaps so to me that indicates older clothes, so I bought them. When I sorted it all out I came up with about 25 pieces that were in good condition. I believe most are from the 1970’s. There is one from the 1960’s ( the blue and yellow plaid dress ). Another outfit called Brocade Shine was red and gold and came with a dress and cape. It seemed like a sought after set. I used a protective cloth and ironed them because most of them had been wadded up into little balls. The group sold for $49 a day after listing.
I was charmed by this group of dolls with their little cookie and ice cream houses. I thought they were Liddle Kiddles but they are called Sweet Treats. They were made by Mattel in the late 1970’s. This group sold for $39 in a few days.
Most of my items sit for a while so it has been fun to list some items that moved quickly.
Another doll related lot I found there was a group of Polly Pocket items from the 90’s. Two are fairy houses and one is called Tropical Pets.
I did find one tag sale on Friday where I picked up a large lot of miniature glass Christmas balls for $2. There were also two boxes, one marked Shiny Brite. I counted over 80 ornaments in all. They range in size from 1″ in diameter to 3/8″ in diameter. From researching it seems these are often used to decorated vintage feather trees. I am nervous to ship them. I think they may sell in the fall.
The last thing I’ll share for this week is a model ship kit that I bought at the thrift store for $5. It appears complete although the box is opened. Fingers crossed.
That’s all for now. I hope everyone is enjoying lovely summer weather and some great sales!!
