My 20ct vintage treasure
Last weekend I took one of my parents' foster kids to a thrift market near my small home town. I was browsing a stall with toys with her, looked in a plastic bag... and found a dirty little seventies hippie doll with a broken waist. She was a dark skinned Hasbro World of Love doll and I paid 20 cents for her.
10 year old girls in 2012 don't like strange dolls like her, so I kept her. I gave her some TLC and repaired her mid section. Cleaning those grubby legs reminded me of cleaning Kenner Blythes, too bad I hadn't found one of those for 20ct :) I put her in a handmade dress that suits her hippie image. She's cute... she might even be the cutest vintage doll I ever thrifted.
