It’s rare to find a vintage Barbie at a Flea Market, especially at a reasonable price.. I should say a cheap price! Yesterday arriving at the flea market, I thought my fun washed out because of the rain. Instead it was a day to find treasures! I think it was also because there was so few of us, that I did find this rare Barbie!
This Bubblecut Barbie usually goes between 70.00 to 150.00 on ebay, depending on her condition. I got her yesterday, in the drizzling rain, for ten dollars. Or I should say the lot she was in, was ten dollars. She was in a warn out Barbie case, with a few other dolls and a pile of outfits. After my Vintage Ponytail Barbie for twenty dollars, I thought I’d never find such a great buy again. But I was wrong, and my collection keeps growing!
Yesterday rainy adventures also brought forth Legos, some cheap CDs/DVDS, and some cool action figures [which included vintage GoBots]!

In 1995, I picked up my first boxed Shockwave.. I was a huge fan of the art, and was thrilled to have this boxed Decepticon as part of my collection! Back then though, I never thought I’d meet the original artist behind that art. I can say I have now, and it’s both an honor and a thrill, to spotlight this talented man and his product!
Tony’s a huge fan of Huffer, so he had to be near the top too!
