Garage Sale booty




Spin it and it twirls mesmerisingly. The kids love it.

Summer colours!

Cute old tin bowl and old pram. LOVE them.

Imagine my delight at finding these 2 boxes for $1. I forced myself to wait until the kids were in bed before I sifted through it.. what joy!

Um yeh this old girl has been rat attacked. Macabre! And rather ironic as she was bought from the Cats Protection League garage sale! LOL!!!!
She is NOT a keeper, sadly. If the rat had bitten her arse, that would probably have been OK....

But this lot is a keeper!
1975 Holly Hobbie dolls... and all their stuff.
And a strange little very
old collector doll..

I had a sindy doll like this. I've been collecting the old ones up, as their legs and body shape are a lot more realistic, in my opinion. (Also, the old ones had eyes that looked sideways and, according to an article I read recently, the straight ahead modern barbies etc.. convey a much more blank and submissive face. Lecture over.)
But mainly, these old girls are a nostalgia trip for me.

Strangely attracted to these chaps. Look at that one-horned purple bull. He's quite cute. Quite old, these guys.

I have 2 more boxes which I have not had a chance to sort through yet!! Yay! I've forgotten what it all is! I will get the chance tomorrow, and I can't wait!! They're out in the garage right now..

I KNOW you all want a maxi like this!! Isn't it magnificent?! Lucky Sindy.

Retro dollhouse furniture. Fantastic colour scheme. And one day I'll find the dollshouse I've been hunting for, and I'll put this lot in, and all the rest I've collected up!

You did really well this week. I love the tea cups and the doll furniture is the cutest. I'm pretty sure I have the same pink pram out in the shed in my old doll house!

Oh a friend has that ball spinning thing - gorgeous. Lovely old doll's stuff - excellent score. Though that poor rat attacked doll - so arthouse...
