New Inventory from The Garage

I just did a major clean-out of the inventory that had been relegated to the garage.  What I found was storage box after storage box of things that my kids are never really going to want, nor do they likely remember, most of which are vintage.  So I consolidated into new boxes that I can grab and list when I have the time.  So I’m working as diligently as I can to list these items.  Check back often to Etsy and Bonanza as more and more will be added in the coming weeks.  For starters:

Vintage Barbies & Vintage Barbie Clothes

In the past couple of weekends I’ve lucked out coming across some vintage Barbies and their vintage clothes. Always keep an eye out for a basket of half-dressed Barbie dolls because somewhere hiding in the bottom may be a few gems.  And most people don’t know that the older dolls are worth far more than the dollar they’re charging.  Even old clothing with the cloth “Barbie” label, or “Ken” or “Midge” or “Francie,” can sometimes be worth as much as a doll.  My most recent finds included the following for which I paid just a few bucks:

You can find help determining what you might have in storage or what you may have found at a garage sale or thrift store at http://www.dollreference.com/barbie2.html and http://www.fashion-doll-guide.com. I have more vintage Barbies and clothing available on Etsy.
