monday = thrifted

I'm so happy you liked the necklace - thank you! {I bought a couple more pieces of vintage embroidery over the weekend with more projects like this in mind so stay tuned...}

it was a great thrifting weekend - I got so much stuff I'm going to have to split it into two posts! {come back friday for the rest}

first I'm going to share the paper dolls, all of which I got at the same estate sale.

I got one box of mixed clothes & dolls {I pulled out several of my favorites}:





two box sets:



and 3 paper folders that included dolls & clothes {here's my favorite one}:


all for $7!

WOWSERS! What a fabulous haul of paper doll goodies! I am very jealous. They put my dog-eared collection to shame.
Lucky you!

I love them. Can I go thrifting with you? :) You found the cutest things. My favorite is Missy Go-Along.

They are so lovely - I loved paper dolls when I was little. It's one of the things you don't seem to get in car boot sales and charity shops over here x

You may know this but the second set are Liddle Kiddles. My sister and I played wth our Kiddles back in the 70's. I envy you finding those paper dolls.

I think I used to have a set of the 4 little kid paper dolls. It seems to me they were suppose to be quartets. What a great find. Everything is so technical these days, kids don't know the charm/fun of playing with paperdolls...

Oh I loved paper dolls as a child! I wish I could come over and play with them! This must be the best $7 you ever spent! What a deal!

When I was very young, mid sixties, I had a paper doll Heidi that had soft hair. It is one of the earliest toys I remember clearly. I loved her and always wanted mor clothes for her. I just loved her "real" blond hair. :o)
