Dropping Into Local Thrift Store

We have a Thrift Store in our small village.  I sometimes go there to see what is available.  I have found some really good things there.  I have only bought two dolls there.  One for the clothing, and another was a Berenguer baby.  At my last trip there, I found a small plastic bag with several crocheted pieces of doll clothing for $.50.  In the bag was a sweater and purse that were perfect for a Toni I had just crocheted a dress for and the color was perfect.  A lighter shade of the color of the dress and it made a perfect contrast.
The other clothes in the bag was a swimsuit and hat for Barbie.  It was just the perfect outfit for a vintage Barbie I had bought several weeks before. The pattern  it was made from is an old Barbie crochet pattern and was just the vintage style  this Barbie needed.    Whoo Hooooo!!!! 


  1. I love thrift stores! You never know what you might find. Looks like you found some goodies for an great price!

  2. Hello from Spain: congratulations on your purchases. Great finds. The doll is very cute. I also I have a dress like that in my collection of dolls. Barbie is very pretty with the suit and hat. Keep in touch
