Vintage Disney, Fisher Price and Dolls

The weather was gray and wet this weekend but the sales brightened my spirits. There was a large community sale that was very crowded. I had to really dig to find a few good items. The best find there was this group of vintage dolls from 1970 called Finger Ding dolls. You put your fingers in their legs to make them walk. I only recognized one doll because it was one I had as a child. The other characters in the bag looked very odd to me but I found out later that they were animal Finger Dings and are somewhat rare. I guess little girls like me thought they were freaky looking back then too and didn’t purchase them too often, making them hard to find today.

This next item is a small pocket knife with a Shell Oil logo on it. I thought the material was some kind of faux mother of pearl. My husband informed me that in fact it is referred to as Mother of Toilet Seat which I think is hilarious.

I picked up this pair of leather horse figures. I think they are ornaments because they have strings attached to them. They have a very tacky vintage look.

I like this sweet vintage child’s drinking cup from Italy. These items don’t sell for very much but I enjoy them, so when they are cheap I usually pick them up.

Another large item I bought at this sale was a fold up vinyl Barbie Country Living Home which came with some of the original furniture pieces inside. Although big and bulky to ship, for $2 I couldn’t pass it up.

At a church sale I bought some vintage Hallmark ornaments and this Fisher Price Happy Apple toy which I have sold before.
