Bitossi, Tiffany, American Girl and Barbie!

Variety was the spice of life – or tag sales – this weekend. I bought many different types of items in different categories. Toys are always my go to but when there are no toys to buy I try to branch out. Here are some of the unusual for me items that I bought this weekend.

I picked up this pretty tapestry. I have a friend who sells them so I thought of her when I saw it. Unfortunately it does have a circular stain at the top. It was $5 which is a lot for me forĀ something I don’t know much about but it’s Paris! I have it up for $39.

I also bought this horse racing picture because it was only $1 and I hear that vintage photos can do well as well as horse themed items. So – here you go. It is from a once famous race track called Latonia in Kentucky. I put it up for auction at $9.99 because I have no idea.

This ceramic horse looks like a Bitossi figure to me but it is not marked. I recognize Bitossi horses by their big bottoms and this one has that attribute. I saw similar ones on Ebay and they are listed as Bitossi so I did the same with mine.

At the same sale where I bought this horse I purchased two of these brown cat trinket boxes. I was excited when I turned them over and saw that they were marked Tiffany & Co. 1977.

I also picked up this set of vintage coloring books. I love the vintage illustrations and since they are from 1965 I could have used a set just like this one! These don’t sell for much but I couldn’t pass it up because it is so nostalgic for me.

So all the above items were pretty much out of my comfort zone but we’ll see how they do. Back in my comfort zone I was happy to see this set of vintage cardboard Barbie chairs and table from 1962. I think it’s surprising that this cardboard furniture survived all these years but there is quite a bit of it available online.

I also found some American Girl doll items including Molly’s purse, a bathroom vanity, some accessories for Julie and a group of pet items.

It was a great weekend but I spent a lot of money so I’d better get listing!!

    Nice score! Love the Tiffany cats…who would have guessed. The horse is very mid-century…you’ll do good with that. The tapestry is maybe vintage. Not an anitque or handmade item. I would carefully try to clean the stain with Woolite. Try a spot first, by patting it with a cloth with the cleaner then patting it with a cloth with just water, and then a dry towel. I’ve worked wonders with Woolite. Good luck!
