Just finished up refurbishing my second Susy Goose Skipper doll furniture set. Available now in my Etsy shop.
Susy Goose doll furniture was manufactured in the early 1960’s in Jonesville, Michigan — about 90 minutes from my house. The doll furniture could be found in stores as well as Sears catalogs. Barbie vanities, beds, and wardrobes seem to have survived the years pretty well and can be found in abundance on eBay, although the white plastic is usually yellowed with time. Skipper furniture, however, is quite rare and very pricey. While the vanity originally came with a sheer skirt, I decided to skip the skirt to better show off the painted carvings on the legs.
I’ve been doing some crafting today … because it’s either that or clean the house! Okay, I did a little cleaning too. But anyway, here’s what I made—tiny little floral arrangements for Barbie and friends. I found the vases on eBay a while ago and have been collecting flowers from various sources. I currently have 14 arrangements available now in my Etsy shop.
I finally finished the first of three vintage Susy Goose Skipper doll vanity and bed sets. This set is pink, but I have a blue set and a purple set in the works. This set is available now in my Etsy shop.
