Pin Cushion Show-off Time!


 This little pink - gold haired girl....stands about 9 inches tall... has a beaded, detachable collar... and you can barely see the pincushion bow on her rear-side......
 As I said.... for me to buy something at an Estate Sale...... it's gonna be $2.00 or so.    I picked up this girl, no price tag... and as I carried her to the checkout... some lady was asking "How old.... what date was the doll in the sewing room???... she wanted to buy it...   So I politely said" I have it!!"   Oh..... oh well.

This is probably a 1960 creation....Lil Dollly has a thimble in her dress pocket....There is netting under her dress....... what we used to call "can-can" under the dress to make it stand out full!   and the Full base of her dress has rick-rack and is filled with over 12-14 wooden spools of thread!!!
 SO............TAKE A PEEK UNDENEATH....
There's a button jar!  She's really just 4-5 inches tall... Her feet are stuck inside the screw-off jar....              Tah-dahhh!!!
Quite an election -year find...... yep... I threw in some politics... I can't apologize!!!   And the beat goes on!
