Thrift Find!! Vintage Barbie Swimming Pool
So I searched Ebay and finally purchased a Dream House, just like mine. Yes, I am reliving my childhood through my daughter. But, lets face it! The Barbie houses and cars today are crappy. I didn't want that for her. After the house my search turned to the pool.
I was in the Goodwill Clearance Center, where they sell it by the pound!! My husband gringes at the mere mention. So there I was, digging in the bins and a light shines down, the angel chorus sings "AHHHHHHHHH" there was the slide to the Barbie Dream Pool. It was a holy grail in the wilds. I searched until I found almost everything. There are 2 pieces of railing missing, the shower, and small accessories are also missing, but I am not worried about that.
Overall, I am thrilled because I only paid $5 for it. I have seen them on Ebay for $30-50 in varying conditions. Now my daughter's Barbies can through the greatest pool parties all summer long.
