Fashion Doll Forum

Hi Everyone!

 I found a neat lil hot spot for myself!!! Since I am new to fashion doll collecting and very much on a budget.. I've found some lil thrift stores around town to  purchase dolls. They sell barbies and fashion dolls  2 or 3 in a pack for under $3.99. Ive found some awesome doll accessories as well. Think I"ll start posting the pics.

  • Here are some pictures of what I found at the thrift store today. 

    Oooooohhh, the anticipation of getting a closer look at what's in the bag

     

    Let's look at what was in the bags

     

    Let's try out the chair size with Liv dolls Alexis and Hayden

    Alexis says, "Oh this chair is too big, my toes are dangling".  Hayden's chair fits perfectly.

    Hayden and Alexis try the adirondack chair together

    Now, lets see what else we have............

    Oh look, this opens up.  I wonder what it's for?  It will keep the puppy out of trouble for now.

    Let's put it all together.  That was a lot of fun for $5

     

  • I love thrift store shopping for doll stuff, too! You have found some great stuff so far. I have a great thrift store near me that a friend told me about. I feel like a kid at Christmas every time I go. :-)

    I love finding a doll, outfit, or accessories at the thrift store, it's like finding a little treasure. My (adult) doll collection began with $2.99 thrift store Barbies.  Thrift stores are also excellent for finding diorama accessories and fabrics. I go to Value Village (Canada) a thrift department store weekly :) 

    Here are my most recent treasures.  The LIV doll was purchased nude, but I bought a bag of clothes at the same time and was able to put together this cute outfit for her.  The doll in the middle is a Moxie Girl? I think this is her original outfit.  And the Bratz doll is a bit of a wreck, but her rocker t-shirt and skirt will fit my Monster High dolls. 

    Oh and I almost forgot, my latest favorite accessory, a black faux leather chaise, is actually a jewelly box from the thrift store.

  • What great finds Cathy!  I love your enthusiasim!  I am so pleased your started this discussion, now I have someone to share with :)

    Thanks for the compliment on the pic with the chaise.  It is indeed a color photo, just all the items, including the doll (Monster High Skull Shores Frankie Stein) are black and white.  Frankie is such a versatile model!

  • I love doll on a budget!! this is so me !! unfortunately I fall in love with 16"

     and as I was a very vivid fan of thrift stores back in Canada (Goodwill /Salvation Army/Value Village) they are none of those "Alibaba's Cave" around here 

  • Sounds great.  Can't wait to see your pics!
