|Keep in mind that High School Musical school and the Monster High School (If you can see it) were already here. I still need to get rid of them.)|
That's the Barbie Country Living House. The doll on the top isn't Pippi Longstocking. She's Minna from the book "The Rag Coat",by Lauren Mills,and she's made by Merrymakers. (I love their dolls. You may have seen my post about some Merrymakers doll HERE.)She's with the mini Chinese lantern,which I accidentally set up upside down. There's also a really nice pose doll,(wearing the red hat).
|It has the couch,table,and chair,plus a homemade pillow and a clear plexiglass coffee table which I didn't photograph because I forgot all about it.It was invisible in the corner of the kitchen!|
|She came from the same dealer as the boxed Dr. Littlechap.|
Doctor John Littlechap was in his box,(and in his underwear.),and came with some homemade clothes. The pink flip couch/bed is American Girl. The sheet music, from one of our favourite movies, is for Ivy.
The horse statue is a pencil sharpener. The hole punch makes flower shapes.
Recognize this girl?
She's Laurie Partridge (Susan Dey), from The Partridge Family. She was made by Remco and is pretty hard to find. These aren't her original clothes though. She's also from the Dr. Littlechap dealer.
That dealer had loads of dolls. (I got Laurie Partridge,Dr. Littlechap,4 other dolls, and the flip chair from her.) She was desperate to get rid of them too because she was moving south and didn't want to take it with her. She really wanted me to take that Country Living house! It started out at $20. Then she said I could have it for $15. Then it became $12. She finally got it down to $10. I still didn't really want it because it had a broken spot and was so big it wouldn't fit in my cart,which was already full. She originally wasn't going to sell Dr.Littlechap or the Vogue Jeff doll,(We'll talk about him in a minute.),because she hadn't priced them yet or even taken them out of the tub. I asked her about them though, and she gave me a price finally. Then it started coming down. Then it came down more, and she knocked some off the Country Living house. Then she marked them down again,and offered to throw in the Country Living house for free. She gave me such a deal I took it. I asked her about the pose doll and she gave me the Bradley doll for nothing with it!
There were lots of miniatures at that flea market.
The box was worth the $10 for the little metal statues alone. Most of them were Tinkerbell! (You can see all the Tinkerbells in the plastic box bottom right.) The others were really realistic figures though.(They're by the porcelain figures.)
There's the Bradley doll that came from the same seller as Dr. Littlechap and Laurie Partridge,and the Vogue Jeff doll on the left. Jeff was Jill's boyfriend.
|You can see the box of miniature books (on the bottom left.),and the porcelain Blue Boy and friend here,bottom right.|
He's in really nice shape and has his clothes. There's also a Christmas ornament and a Happy Family Ryan doll dressed in the Tommy prince outfit. The cool little shelf full of minis was only $3 from the dealer I bought the box of minis from!
Look at all that great stuff. It's removable too.
This flea market wasn't like the farmery flea markets we usually go to,so not only did I find alot more stuff, some of the prices were not as good,since these people often knew the value of the stuff I'm looking for better than the dealers at the farmery flea markets. I still got some really good deals though. When I bought several things from one dealer they usually discounted it for me. I'm not sure Lori will want to go to that flea market again,since the farmery ones are more her thing.It's closer though, so maybe I can get Emma or Ken to go with me sometime. Next time we'll see what Ken got me for our anniversary.
