Well, summer's almost over but it's still ripe yard sale and flea market weather. That means lots of goodies out there just waiting to be found!
As luck would have it my friend Greggo found me a little box of Barbie stuff at a yard sale.
It was a typical double-Barbie case with some fun stuff inside. Let's see what we got!
This adorable clone Skipper outfit was in there, with an unusual number of clone Skipper items. I know nothing about this outfit (I don't think it's mom-made) but it might have been my favorite thing in the lot. (Skipper was not included.)
There was this white turtleneck top...
And this red and white one... I'm not sure which top is supposed to go with it, but they both look cute.
Do this jacket and leggings go with it too? Your guess is as good as mine. :) Only the jacket is tagged with a Hong Kong label.
These pieces from Skipper's Outdoor Casuals #1915 were included, the outfit came with white shoes but this light-blue Japan-marked shoe was in there. The comb was hidden under the drawers of the case... you always find something under there so don't forget to look, even in the crappiest doll case, there's usually something good hiding in the cracks.
Also Skipper's Dreamtime #1909, which wasn't complete but did include one slipper! The robe is actually in pretty good shape, considering those ties are usually yanked off.
Ricky doll's pants from Sunday Suit #1503, and some cute clone Skipper pants in a pretty pink gingham.
And a headless Skipper body...?
Barbie's Singing In The Shower #988, just a few pieces! The robe's in really nice shape, and the lid of her talc box was found stuck in the glue under the drawer of the case.
Suburban Shopper #969 in decent shape with purse in so-so shape.
Some PAK pieces, a blue knit dress and a yellow PJ top. Usually the elastic in the knit dress is all stretched out but in this one it's still pretty good.
A clone version of Skipper's Silk n' Fancy #1902, and the purse from Barbie's Red Flare #939, missing it's button. This Skipper outfit was frequently cloned by various companies. You can tell the difference in numerous ways, mostly the quality, but also the Skipper version will be tagged. This one has a Hong Kong tag. Also Skipper's has an underskirt and this one does not.
With Barbie, there's always something random that doesn't belong with everything else. With all that Vintage-Era Barbie stuff was this one piece of Mod-Era clothing, the overdress from Patio Party #1692.
And some random stuff! The Skipper swimsuit is for a bend-leg Skipper, but the Skipper body included isn't a bend-leg body. The green hat is from a Maddie Mod outfit. There was also a cheap plastic ring that says "I'm Sexy," lol!
Here's Skipper again in her cute outfit :p
I also had some other finds this Summer...
Found this at the flea market last week, one of my favorites! Barbie's Dancing Stripes #1843 from 1968... in a box of totally modern 1990s Barbie clothes.
I also won an auction lot of Mod-era clothes, which I'll maybe talk about some other time. I put them away for some reason before taking pictures :I Kinda stupid of me.
Anyone else find anything good this summer?
