Mattel used up the rest of the fabric on some later Best Buys (msg)
If they ran out of a regular fabric and production wasn't finished for the day, but those pieces are rare.
From the design on that dress, it's the original one from the giftset and not a "use up the fabric" piece.
Congratulations! You got a very good find!
I don't think there was anymore of the outfit on any of the other dolls there. I snagged that one for the doll, but loved the outfit.
I am interested in the Rockers paper doll book as it's one I don't have.
I'm also swooning over the blue and pink dress. That's from the rare Superstar Fashion Change Outs giftset!!!! I have no idea what you paid but that alone would have had me buying and running for the car as fast as I could!
Every once in a while we head up to Cheyenne WY ( only about 40 minutes away, actually closer than Denver to us ) and hit up a flea market up there we like. I have found several fun dolly things there in the last year or so, so I am always game to go. Well last weekend was a doozy. First up, came upon these paper dolls:
40 uncut books!!! They had wanted 5 each for them, but lowered the price to a buck! I was starting to sort through them, then decided, how stupid is that and bought them all. If you are into the Barbie paper dolls from the late 70's to the 90's let me know. I will be listing them on in my Etsy store, but will gladly sell a few here for less if you want.
Then I moved on and found another seller with big cardboard flats of dolls for 5 each. Well look what I dug out of there:
Either vintage dolls or vintage outfits on all of these. The Gold Rush outfit is near mint, and I didn't have it, so am tickled pink, or gold as the case may be. The nighty on the left end is also one I didn't have.
Plus I found some Vera scarves and an adorable Enid Collins bag, so it was a very good day!
