Vintage on Vintage

I love vintage things. I haven’t always loved vintage things, but Blythe has certainly helped that along. With countless hours spent going through thrift stores in hopes of finding that coveted thrift Kenner, I’ve managed to acquire a small collection of vintage Pyrex and other kitchenware.

Like many of you, I also spend a lot of time looking at photos of Blythes belonging to other people and I adore photos of Blythe in vintage clothing. I enjoy vintage Skipper fashions (and the flats!), I covet the squishy laced-up Barbie boots and I have a small (growing!) collection of vintage handmade Skipper clothes that someone’s mom once made for them that got tossed aside to either eBay lots or thrift stores.

What better way to show a love for vintage doll clothing than to have a vintage doll wearing them?

    I love vintage clothes on my Kenner!! She’s the only one in my family that I feel can pull off the fun Skipper fashions. 😀

    I have a 1972 Kenner Blythe doll, redhead with bangs. Has original long green flowered dress and orange polka dot panties, no shoes. I purchased it for my daughter many years ago, and she was going to get rid of it, so I took it and have had it sitting in my bedroom for many years. I always thought it was cute with the changing eye colors, the reason for my taking it over when my daughter was putting it in the give-away box. I am 70 yrs. old and really have no need of it. I did not realize its value until very recently, but would possibly be interested in selling it for a good price. Is ebay the best place to put it up for sale? Thanx.
