Estate Sale - Vintage Dolls

There was one estate sale this weekend and I was on the fence about going. I had some errands to run on Friday and since I was out and about I decided to go by and give it a look see. I was pleasantly surprised and actually ended up buying quite a bit. I couldn't resist the two creepy composition dolls and an old wicker doll carriage (Hedstrom Union - I think around 1930's). The doll carriage had belonged to the owner of the home when she was a child. The larger doll is a Shirley Temple Look Alike (she is not marked). Both dolls are composition heads, shoulders, arms and legs with cloth bodies.

I also found some great vintage Christmas smalls to include old corsages and gift tags.

And some other smalls.

I also bought an old vintage metal soft drink rack but it has not been unloaded yet!

On another note, we had a 4th of July celebration at my house on Saturday. I had 3 of my nieces and nephews over as well as my children for a nice BBQ dinner. We ended up looking at old family photos and put a 1000 piece puzzle together. It was so much fun I thought I would share some pictures. (I bought the puzzle at the yard sale on Friday)

Wishing you a Happy 4th!


  1. i love that tiny book mark!
    Also, how fun that you all did a puzzle together! We did one recently and I forgot how nice it is to just sit together and work on something like that.

  2. What great finds. I love love the Cracker Jack book mark! I've never seen one before. It sounds like you all had a great time and putting puzzles together is always fun!
