Vintage Treasures


It occurred to me that I never showed the rest of my thrifted finds. These were bought when I found the little wooden oven.

Three Christmas decorations. Just like the ones we had when I was growing up in the 70's. I loved them then and I love them now. There is a Rudolph one, but the one at the store was missing a leg. I decided to tempt fate and not buy it, hoping that I will find a fully-intact Rudolph at another time.


Then I found a great little vintage suitcase. But, wait. There's more ...


It was filled with vintage Barbie clothes. The little girl in me squealed when I found this.


Be still my heart, you little rubber boots.

oh fun! Are you keeping the doll cloths put away or letting Spenser play with them? I had all of my mom's Barbie stuff when I was a kid - I loved it!

Lera,
That is a real score! I love those unexpected finds! They make the hunt worth all the times you go home with the hands a bit empty!

Oh I would have squealed out loud at the barbie find! The suitcase is awesome too. I remember loving the Christmas decor as a kid too. Thanks for the flash backs ;)

Diane said...

The suitcase was great as is, but all those goodies inside?!

I was all about the Sunshine Family back in the day... too bad my older brother used to have his GI Joe blow up their camper all the time. Sound effects and everything...

Emily said...
