Special Finds

These are some things I found in the past week. I love these special finds, especially when you weren’t looking for them.

The first one was a real treasure. It measures approx. 10” wide and high. The price of $10 was so good I bought two of them. I have no idea which dolls will get to enjoy their new cozy sofa’s, but they are just perfect for someone.


The added bonus to the sofa’s was that when you flip the top of it back, you find a secret compartment in the bottom. What fun to make a doll for a customer and then show them that they can put some kind of little treasures in there.


The other things I found were these sweet beaded purses. My friend Jessica and I went for a walk the other day and the first thing we came across was a garage sale. I don’t normally stop, but these little purses were catching the morning sun and just beckoning me to come forward…lol

They measure just over 6” both ways. I have a couple of spots to fix up the beading, Once I check them over and secure any other weak spots, I can then take them apart and I’ll use the beaded fabric on my dolls. They would make beautiful bustiere’s, and maybe a flowing silk skirt to compliment that. I paid $2 each for them. What a find.



When we passed by the garage sale again on the way home, Jessica spotted these in a free box and thought I could use them for my dolls, and I agreed. They are either key fobs or handles from purses which is more likely. I could see them being used for belts, or if done carefully, I bet I could even use them to make some pretty bling inspired boots.

Don’t you just love it when others are looking out for you, and helping to keep your stash healthy. Thanks Jessica. ;o)



  1. You have a very good eye for finding things Ramona. These are real treasures!

  2. The chairs are a fabulous find. Those purses just reminded me that I have a few stashed somewhere. I must take a look. Using them for doll related stuff is a great idea.
