Thrift Store Finds

I've had a couple of weeks of good luck at the local thrift shops.

Effenbee Four Seasons: Summer from 1981.

Skipper as Velma from Scooby Doo, 2002.

Disney Animators Collection, Elsa.

A Moxie Girlz Lexa to practice face-ups on.

And a cute Whitney in a Suzie Cute dress. Now to find out which Whitney she is.

Have you had any lucky finds lately?

Honey Lamb

I came home from convention last year with this adorable little girl, Honey Lamb.

By EG (Eegee/Goldberger), she comes with a cute little lamb companion.

Most likely manufactured in the 1970s, the back of her head and her body are only marked with, Made in Hong Kong, and Hong Kong.

Her body is hard, hollow vinyl, while her head is soft vinyl. She is about 8 inches tall without her hat.

Underneath her dress, she is wearing white undies and black vinyl boots.

The lamb is squeezable, but is not a squeeker.

Since it is a gorgeous day, Honey and her lamb allowed me to take some pictures of them outside, so you can see them in natural light.

My Melody

Last year Sanrio celebrated the 40th anniversary of My Melody. One of the products released was an outfit for Licca.

The set includes a dress, headband, My Melody plush head bag, and a pair of boots.

The theme of the outfit is pink strawberries.

Redressing Curvy Barbie

I have been purchasing and trying clothes on my Curvy Barbie.

These first two items - stone washed jeans and silver top - were individual Barbie items.

It turns out the jeans are a stiff plasticy material with no give, whatsoever. They do not fit her, at all. They feel weird, too.

The top is a tight fit, but does fit. It will probably look better on other dolls, though.

What did fit her well, was the Camp Barbie outfit.

The pants and top are stretchy, and even the boots fit her feet.

The pink vest is a little small. but looks OK.

It is good to know that while it is hit and miss, there are Barbie clothes that fit her.
