Let’s clear one thing up, I have plenty of 1980’s Barbies in my burgeoning collection that some people, (probably whippersnappers), will think of as vintage. But I will never consider a Barbie from the Superstar era as vintage. My vanity will not allow it. These are the dolls from my childhood. . . ya bunch of punks.
So this 1970 Standard Barbie is my first vintage Barbie.
She cost me $2 at an auction. No one else wanted it so I had no competition. I was with a bunch of old men who wouldn’t know a Yellowstone Kelley from a Style Magic Whitney, am I right?
Even though she is missing part of her fingers I’m still so happy to have her. I hope branching out into vintage isn’t a sign that this collection is getting out of control. 😉
Let me know what your first vintage doll was, or the story behind when you realized your collection was getting out of control!
