Vintage Barbie Fashion Booklets

My Latest Saturday-find !!

Boy when I was a young girl I just loved Barbie!
In fact my First Barbie Dolls were a Blonde Hair 
Bubble Barbie and a Red haired Midge Doll.
My Sisters and I played Barbies for Hours.
In fact some days we would set up our
Barbie Houses play all day leave them up through 
bedtime and resume playing the next day!

When I spotted these Vintage Fashion Booklets I
just had to have them. What fun to look through
the pages a reminder of all the lovely Barbie outfits
and accessories we as children had on our wish lists
and for just a few dollars, seemed like a fortune to us.
I plan on scanning some of the pages another time
I just know you will enjoy the pictures like I do!
Have a great Saturday and Happy Hunting!

The middle booklet on the top looks really familiar, I think I might still have that one!!
Oh, I loved my Barbies too..... I didn't have a sister, so would play with my friends or when my cousins came over, and sometimes could talk my mom into playing them with me. I still have most of them; I need to do a post of them!

How fun. My daughters played Barbie's but I was a baby doll girl!! Loved pretending I had my own baby to wash, dress and feed. Barbie was too sophisticated!!

Your vintage dolls are fab!!

Wow, Diane! I had a strapless gown Barbie dress very similar to that! If not the same! I remember acidently burning the skirt portion with an iron when I was very, very, young! Don't know if I was supposed to have that iron or not! ♥

It's amazing how blogging can trigger so many childhood memories! ♥

What a great find Diane! My friends and I would play Barbies for hours, and in the summer we'd have them spread all along our sidewalk, and the dolls had to go visit each other. So much fun, until neighborhood boys came along and tried to spoil our fun! said...

I have one of these; how fun to see the rest!

Love your great finds. I loved my Barbie too. I can remember days on end making clothes for them. Happy Pink Saturday.

Great finds, love the bold use of colours. I had a few Barbie's, but was always a Sindy girl at heart. Barbie went a pink OTT when I was a kid. I think it would have been a different matter with the Barbie's above, love the jazzy colours & prints.

WOW! What a great find! I know we are all thrilled to find anything vintage Barbie! She holds such a special place in our hearts. Love the cards you are working on this weekend, too! ♥

Love your Barbie finds!
My sister and I had Barbies.
My first Barbie was a blonde, and my firet Midge was a red head.

BUT my sister said they were lost when my mother passed away...well low and behold when my sister had her was amazing that there they were...even the white bed set that was made for Barbie!

I was not happy...

BUT am happy you found such beauties!

I still have a couple of my booklets - I just love them! I must have spent a lot of time looking at them when I was little because I think I have every outfit (and the all important accessories and shoes) committed to memory. Thanks for sharing, Diane!
