Estate Sales - Old Dolls

I will keep this short and sweet (but lots of pictures). Last Friday I ran over to an estate sale and was 3rd in line behind two guys who I knew weren't interested in the dolls I had seen in the online pictures. The pictures online showed a table full of old dolls and doll clothes. When the door opened I asked the guy where the dolls were and told him I wanted to purchase the whole table. It pays to get there early sometimes!

Anyway, this is what I brought home!

1930's Shirley Temple Doll

1950's Madame Alexander Sweet Violet

Sweet little Betsy McCall

1950's Shirley Temple

Jill Doll

Not only did I get the dolls, but tons (and I mean tons) of old doll clothes! Pictured are just a portion of the doll clothes lot!

Some really sweet old paper dolls!

And a few old doll trunks! I love the pink ones!

I was beyond excited to get this large lot of dolls and doll clothes. They will be coming to Etsy soon.

We did have a wedding since the last time I posted. My youngest son got married at Tybee Island. The wedding was beautiful (on the beach) and we had a great time!

Hope you are having a great weekend!

Estate Sale Finds

Mom and I had a little outing yesterday morning. We showed up really early to an estate sale so we could be at the front of the line (I think we ended up being about 5th). Lucky for me, the lady in front of us had been in the house before and knew exactly where the room was that I wanted to go to first. Unlucky for me we stood in line for over an hour and the lady in front of us talked non stop about herself and how wonderful she was - Mom and I just smiled and nodded out heads because we could hardly get a word in. Oh well, gotta take the good with the bad.

We ended up coming home with quite the haul. My favorites are the Gibson Table Number Cards, the Metal Base Kewpie and the Celluloid Uncle Sam.

The Gibson Cards in Original Box and the Cards are in perfect Condition.

A lot of Frozen Charlottes.

Tiny Pin Cushion marked Germany.

Odds and Ends - a gold filled baby ring, lapel/tie pins, button hooks.

Chalkware whisk broom.

Chippy Boudoir Doll/Pin Cushion.

Celluloid Uncle Sam - I think these are hard to come by.

Three Lovely Ladies!

Lot of Half Dolls.

I didn't really like her but I took all her friends so I couldn't leave her behind.

Half Doll Boudoir Doll with pockets for powder puffs.

Another Boudoir Doll.

Nancy Ann Nun.

She is really chippy but she is still beautiful to me. 

1950's German Felt Big Bad Wolf.

Lot of small dolls.

Brainerd & Armstrong Thread.

Glitter Christmas Trees.

Small China Doll.

Pastry Cutters, one is shapes the other is the Alphabet.

Old Hair Comb.

Irwin Kewpie.

Harrison Fischer Wedding Postcards in Frame. My youngest son is getting married next month and I couldn't resist this.

Cute Vintage child's shoes.

Kokeshi Doll from Japan and two wooden Dolls made in Finland.

This guy is so cute! He is some kind of metal. I was thinking a lamp base but there is not a hole in his head. So I am not sure what he would have been a part of. It's a mystery to me but he was just too adorable to leave behind.

It was a fun sale and we were really happy with our purchases. 

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
