I have picked up a few dolls and toys at the thrift store lately. I also got one unusual item which I picked up because it was marked on the bottom Jeffrey Bernett Corian and Conde Nast. From my research I found out that he is a famous designer. I don’t really know what exactly this thing is. I guess it is some kind of box or container. I listed it as a desk accessory. I think it looks cool and you don’t find many things made of Corian besides counter tops.
I found an older Barbie doll in a vintage dress hanging in one of the bags on the wall. I’m selling the doll and the dress separately. Unfortunately both are in pretty poor condition. I picked up a Radio City Rockettes doll because she was new in her box. The last doll I found came from an estate sale. I think she has a really beautiful painted face and some lovely, well made clothing.
I purchased two plush items which are this green Crayola crayon bear and a Kipling gorilla mascot key chain.
The find of the week came from a $4.00 bag on the wall. I picked it up because I thought I saw one of those flocked animals from Germany. It turned out that this cute dog was an Original Real Fur animal from West Germany. He sold quickly for $15.00. But also in the bag, which I didn’t even notice until I opened it, was a small vintage Steiff pig!
The last two things I bought this week came from the same estate sale where I found the cloth doll. They are a painted wooden box from Italy and a glass golf putter head paperweight. Lots of variety of finds this week. I am anxiously awaiting spring!
