Vintage Christmas, Dolls and Ponies

There were no exciting sales for me this weekend so off to the thrift store I went and found a few good items. I bought two dolls. First I saw this doll laying in the toy area. She looked older to me because her clothes had metal snaps but her face looked more modern. She had no markings on her. I walked around with her for a while and decided I should buy her since she was only 4 dollars and in fairly good condition. It took me a long time to figure out that she is a Betsy McCall 20″ ballerina doll from the 1960’s. I don’t know her price so I am starting high and will see what happens! She is the kind of doll I would have loved when I was a child. That’s probably why I couldn’t leave her at the store.

The other doll I bought is a Licca doll by Tomy. It is an anime style doll which I believe is like the Japanese version of Barbie. I have sold a few of this type of doll in the past for about $20.

The next thing I spotted was on the wall of toy bags. It was two My Little Pony figures. I have only been able to sell the G-1 figures from the 1980’s and that’s what these two turned out to be. The bag was $4. These are not rare ones which can go for a lot of money. I’ll be happy to get $10 for each one.

With so many people opening jewelry jars and talking about jewelry on Youtube I’ve started looking at the jewelry counter more closely. This blue egg locket caught my eye. It just really charmed me and I bought it even though it was $10. It opens and has an adorable little apple inside. This is something that I wouldn’t mind keeping.

I forgot to mention this item which I bought at a tag sale last weekend. It is an old box of bubble lights. There were 6 lights inside but I really love the look of the box.

Not too much to report today. That’s what happens when it’s almost winter and the tag sales run out. Hope you are all having fun and looking forward to the holidays!!

    Love the Betsy McCall doll! I used to cut the paper dolls out of the magazines and play with them. I’ve never seen the doll. It must have been something you had to send away for in the magazine.
