Vintage Ken Doll

kenthumbThis is the nicest Ken doll I’ve ever seen.  He’s minty and fresh in every way, definitely collector quality. Ken’s been sealed up in a vinyl Barbie case since the 60’s and now he’s got cabana fashion on and is ready to party.  :)

See the details about this Ken doll at Vintage Babs. SOLD

Vintage Barbie Books

The Barbie Fashion series is the absolute best vintage Barbie resource book for Barbie fashions from 1959 to 1967 and follow-up books for fashions from 1968 to 1979.  No collector can be without these books.

I was stunned to learn that new copies are no longer available on Amazon.  I don’t know if it’s out of print now or what, but these books will become “collectors items” themselves because of low availability just like so many Barbie resource books have.

If you’re interested in having the series, now is the time to get your copy.  I promise you, the prices will skyrocket the longer they’re out of print. You can also check for it on eBay and possibly get a lower price.

Vintage Babs has a very detailed list of resource books for Vintage Barbie. See it here.

Barbie’s Bargain Basement

I’m not able to throw anything away that is vintage Barbie, even if it’s a sticky version of one of those MOD “space age” outfits that was made from some kind of weird material that sticks together and bleeds all over itself. I am hopeful with all the talented doll artists we have out there, that some of these damaged vintage Barbie items can be used to make their OOAK creations or that they’ll find a home in some collector’s china cabinet on a Barbie doll and no one is the wiser to the big stain on the back. :)

There are some new bargain lots here at Vintage Babs.
