My Thrift Store Find

Hello friends, today was my lucky day at the thrift shop. As you know we never know what we will find, well today I found dolls, I love dolls, guess we all still have a little bit of little girl in us. Let me share with you my findings.
This was my favorite today, she is 18" long and wears a fabulous Victorian dress with a long train, lots of lace. Her hair is almost perfectly done in Gibson style and she is porcelain. Price $5.00



This is the cutest little fairy. Her wings were dirty and ripped so I took them off and she will soon have a new set of wings.


Mr. and Mrs. Bear were just married, a happy couple indeed. Hopefully I can clean up his pants if not will make him a new pair.


Sweet angel with porcelain head and hands. Perhaps a tree topped this Christmas.


Fell in love with this little cute bear, look how clean she is.

I was so happy with my findings today, it isn't everyday that we can find a group like this all in one store. When I got home my husband said, you must of found something really good because I see a big smile and he was right. So happy thrifting to all of you next time you are out hunting.
