Back to the rummage sale finds! This post will focus on Samantha. This moving sale household had an early adopter of Pleasant Company Samantha. Today I have my neighbor’s Samantha in to model.
This is a PC Samantha’s Kimono. It was $ 5.00. One doesn’t roam the house in one’s nightgown!
Here we have Samantha’s “meet” hat.
This is an early version of the hat because it has a pink ribbon on the brim which was later changed. It’s such a substantial hat — so well crafted. I intended to eBay this, but Brianna isn’t on board with that. I bought this on the second day of the sale for $ 1.50 because everything was half off! Yes, I went back. Are you really surprised??
Next we have the 1991 travel bag.
Originally there was a rattan hanger so you could transport a doll’s outfit in style. The small bag can hold accessories or shoes. This set came with a woven basket the doll could travel in. Love the Pleasant Company logo tag.
Finally (for this post anyway), we have Samantha’s book strap, which was .10 cents. It is just the softest leather and buckles like a real watch. It is shown with another PC find – Molly’s book bag. I believe Molly’s bag was $ 5.00. The whole bag is completely functional with buckle straps and some flash cards for on-the-go math practice. I thought about eBay for the book strap.
The green language arts book is readable and advises the 1940s student that just should rhyme with rust and please do not say jest, jist, or jes’!
I have one more post of rummage treasures to share, which will include the items I passed up. — reluctantly, as you can imagine.
