Yet Another Great Thrift Store Find!
Surprisingly, it's very different than the one I already have. Which got me thinking, "how many of these houses were made?" Too tired to check right now, but I will research it later.
This house is blue, not the gaudy pink like my other one. But the upstairs porch is much larger on my pink one.
The inside is a little different, too. Even the elevator and how it moves is different.
This one has a really nice fireplace/bookcase and a wall tv.
The bathroom area seems to be missing some pieces.
Here is the kitchen area.
Here the houses are side-by-side. I love that they are a little different. They will make great neighborhood homes. At first I wasn't going to keep my pink one up, but now that I have the blue one, I think I will decorate them and assign them to families.
Here you can see how they differ.
The bedroom in the pink one has a vanity that turns into a tub.
And here is the other cool item I found at the thrift store.
"THE CLAW"!!! Toy Story is one of my favorite movies. If you are not familiar with The Claw, check out Toy Story #1. Toy Story #4 is in the works. I can't wait. So there is an opening in the top so I can add some goodies for my dolls to try to win.
So thanks Ms. Leo. If I hadn't read your post, I never would have made it to this thrift store. I forgot to mention the young girl that appeared out of nowhere when I stopped to open and take a look at the house. I think she thought I was going to put it down and she was ready to pounce. I also forgot to mention, $6.96 is what I think I paid for the pink house several years ago. I found that one at another Goodwill in my area.
If you care to see an amazing redo of one of these houses, check out this link to Land of Dolls on Flickr. This is a link to the finished redo, but there are lots of progress pictures in her photostream, too.
