First up let me share with you the hangers:
After that we have the bag of accessories that I bought. This one is the actual exciting part about this post. Here's how it looked when I find it with everything together:
Up first we have the sunglasses. Not all of these came in the bag, the one on the far right is reproduction Barbie that I added to show off the scale of the other ones, all the rest of them came from the bag. For the most part, I won't be able to use most of these. The one on the far left (the glasses with glitter at the temples) is too big for Barbie. It does fit Sindy pretty decently, except her head is a touch bigger making the glasses bowed when she wears them. She does look cute in them, but I'm afraid of them breaking if I left them on her, so she won't be wearing them that often. The pair to the right of that one is probably the best out of the four and might actually end up on a doll. It's also the dirtiest pair. It's covered in like a tacky cobweb like substance. I haven't tried cleaning it off, but I'm sure it will clean up nicely. The final two are probably will never be used. Like the reproduction pair they have working arms (In fact all of these glasses have working arms), but how they were designed they arms can't open fully meaning they aren't able to open wide enough to actually fit Barbie's face. Which is a shame since they're really cute, but I'm not too upset over this fact, there's still plenty in the bag that totally made this purchase awesome. (And besides, Barbie can always just hold the glasses, she doesn't have to actually wear them)
Up next we have a really exciting group from the bag, actual Barbie shoes, marked and everything. Most of them are in really good shape, except for the staining on the white pairs. In this assortment, we have two pairs of vintage Barbie Wedges, one pair with the earlier cork bottoms and one with the later plastic bottom. I've been searching forever for the match to the solo one I got ages ago, and now I have two very nice pairs. Still want to find a match to my single one. After that we have two pairs of white open toe heels, both marked Japan, both with some red stains. They're in good shape without any breaks. And finally we have a pair of sky blue open toed "slippers". They're the same as the other shoes, but they had a fuzzy ball glued to the front, one is missing, but one is still there. This pair belongs to the vintage outfit "Sweet Dreams". I can say that for certain since the outfit was in the same booth being sold separately. This single purchase has more than doubled the number of vintage shoes I own, which is pretty awesome for a confessed shoe addict.
There was also a lot of random stuff in the bag. Out of all of them, only one of them was vintage Barbie. That's the blue corduroy purse in the lower left corner. Above that we have a "Made in Japan" straw clone Barbie purse. It's in the style that came with the vintage Barbie outfit "Plantation Belle". In the center we have a Tennis Racket and holder? both marked Japan. I found out later that these belong to Tammy, which makes sense since her shoes were in the bag as well. To the right of that on the top we have a blue phone marked Hong Kong. The yellow "cord" is actually a wrapped wire, meaning it can't ever be uncurled (I actually had to rewind part of it), and the phone won't actually sit correctly on the base, the cord gets on the way. Below that we have a transistor radio also marked Hong Kong. It looks like it's missing things, maybe an antenna? It does have a cute handle that can come out. I think the dial on the side is supposed to move, but it looks like the glue might have leeched and it's stuck. I might try taking it apart to see if I can get it to move, but I might not bother. And finally there's a random blue spoon, and a clone camera, unmarked.
I saved one of the coolest things for last. That vintage Barbie purse? It belongs to the outfit "Evening Splendor". I was examining it at home when I opened it. You know what was carefully tucked inside? The very hard to find vintage Handkerchief (it's the white scrap of fabric to the right of the purse). Also tucked inside was a scrap of paper. In tiny cursive it says; "beautiful looks Midge...." (I can't read that last word). How cool is that? That the child who owned this was so smart to tuck that small piece of cloth into the purse and it managed to not get lost! I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, but I assure you that the handkerchief and note are going back into that purse, I don't want to be the fool to lose either of them! I wonder if the Midge doll the note talks about is that Brunette doll the seller wanted 45 dollars for. I wouldn't be shocked if these all came from the same lot.
So that's everything that was in the bag, pretty awesome, right? I can't believe I got all this for five dollars! This entire bag could have sold for five times as much easy. But it's mine! All Mine!
