I wanted to show you what I found on my latest trip to the
thrift store. I really think I did well! First the big score!
Barbie VW van.
I didn't see this at first because it was in a corner. First
rule of thrift store shopping, leave no stone unturned!
It is the second VW barbie vehicle I own. I may have to
show my vehicle some time soon.
It was $2.00. Although I might paint it. I do hope the price
will come of with the use of some solvent. My dolls may need
to ride before I get around to painting it.
I really love that it seats six! Can you say family vacation?
All in all it is not in bad shape. The seats move so I can
turn some seats backwards.
There is even a TV to watch on those long trips.
I have the passenger mirror but
the driver's mirror is missing. But that is the only
Next are miniatures that I can use for dioramas!
I found this chair, basket and vegetables.
I wish I had two of these but one will have to do!
You can always use a basket...so it got this too!
Theses veggie were in a bag and I know I could use them
this time of year! They can be Halloween , thanksgiving and
I just love the corn!
It is all in the basket!
I found these in the case!
I got these too! The lion and
horse! They are great items for a shelve. There were more.
I should have gotten them. What was I thinking? Oh, that I only
You cant leave without checking out the dolls! The blonds
I purchased for the bodies. The blond seat is already on her
new body. Her face was the same as the other blond in the
I had this head for a while looking for a body. I don't have
to have articulation legs but I must have arms. I'm calling
I've seen this girl on a few other blogs. She is by Remco.
She was nude and I put this Stacie dress on her. You can see
it is a little big on her. She is not as tall as the old Stacie
and she is taller than the SIS Doll Kids. She has a cute
face and that what I liked. She does have the chunkier body
of the old Stacie type dolls and her feet are the same size.
She is being called Claire.
I couldn't pass up this sweetie. I don't know who
she is. This is the outfit she came with. She is
Well I found this doll there too. If you read my blog, you
know that I'm not a fan of the oversize Desiree heads. She
had the dress and
the shoes. I just love the shoes so I got her. Her legs don't
bend...Bad Mattel, Bad, Bad! She does had free moving legs???
I don't know what they are called but they are kind you
normally see on jointed dolls. So I plan to practice leg
transplants with her.
Insert ghoulish organ music here!
This doll really need rescuing!
She is in a Ken outfit. OK! This outfit is why Mattel's menswear
is so sad. Who thought this looked good, were they paid
and why didn't they just give the money to me? You really
have to look to other manufactures for great men's clothing.
Anyway, I'm keeping the body for another doll and the head will go
into the bag of heads! Ghoulish music her too!The outfit
will go on a male to be sentto a flea market.
