Wow, the thrift stores keep coughing up goodies.
I these first two batches of stuff in May.
This little house is actually something I thought I might want in the future.

The roof is the only thing that was in poor condition, and I will come up with a fix at some time. The walls and floors and the furniture included are in excellent condition. Mattel made a few different versions of this...with color tweaks. Totally loving the photo possibilities with Mod girls and fashions. This version I found is from 1961!
This doll was included---with some major hair issues...she's had a freshening and cut, and is wearing a new Mattel fashion, I thought was cute. I've put some vintage hangers up in the corner. Check out the lamp---? I don't think is Mattel.
The one of two-white chests with the tropical stickers, I will have to track down.
The bed is original..and really fun and flips over to a tub.
I'm totally in love with the wall graphics on this...! Here's another little yellow white chest...which screams late 1970s. Finally found the white wicker table that goes to other pieces I have. Dig the sofa---all original possibly from the house itself.
Two turquoise pieces...that cabinet will move into Jacquie's Salon, and the cold drinks will end up ???.
5 more pieces...two school chairs(minus the desk part) a work out bench, a small console computer or tv, and a corner cabinet complete with molded items in it. I actually think this is smaller scale, but it works in Chelsea's room just fine.
I finally found a clock---not Mattel but the right scale. I will have fun refurbishing this for a new apartment I'm doing.
Two 1970's camp chairs....Mattel...can't have too many of these, and I think they are still making them or a version of them.
The green tub and toilet (which makes flushes) is actually Sindy, which is excellent as the scale is better than some Mattel bathroom sets. The yellow locker is full of tiny stamp shapes, actually a Barbie product, and they are so small they are almost doll scale. Another project for Chelsea.
The yellow ladder back chairs are Mattel circa 1969-70's from some version of the Live Action Barbie House.
The two orange chairs are from Fisher Price Loving Family---but hey, they are perfect for Mattel girls/guys too.
Another little baggie contained all these cabachons-flat backed plastic goodies, and foodstuffs. Some are all-arounds and well, I will make some cute boxes or put them in a store.
My last batch of goodies is also varied. These were multiple purchase..some labels are still on. Loving the turquoise couch---I suspect that is from one of the wood-doll house brands. It's cute though and in good condition.
The lounger and stool, not sure where they are from, will have to sleuth some more.
Back row L to Right.
The white bookcase window unit has lower bookcase shelves.
The purple wall unit is both-sided and missing some pieces.
But I just happen to have some brand new little totes that will make this entirely workable as storage in some tiny apartment. And you always need more clothes haning space. I wish the drawers opened.
The pink unit is one of those folding pieces...?
That pink piece has possibilities...I will see if I can use it in future projects.
This is one of Mattels marvels of invention, one of the many Fold-and-Go Houses. Everything folds up and disappears.
The bed is basically an accordion and folds into the wall.
I think I may take this all apart and utilize the windows, stairs, and wall pieces here and there. The walk up the stairs tub doesn't really make sense, nor does the fold down sink?
Here's the whole thing almost ready to close----ah the tub has to fit over the chair...like I said a marvel of design.
It does have a chunk missing---makes you wonder if a bicycle or car ran over it.
THE WORST part is this paltry peach is supposed to be PINK. Only thing worse than pink is this peach...serious paint is needed to make this bearable.
A few kiddie pieces were thrown inside this. Also in paltry peach-once pink.
That's my shopping for awhile. All this was purchased for under $45.00. Yes, they are odds and ends---but wait until the magic happens. But, it won't be soon---the real garden and yard is a priority now for the next month.
Thanks for viewing...if anyone has information on any of these pieces please share in comments.
