Paper Dolls

OMGosh look what I found. LOL. I have bought several of these paper doll sets in years pass. I did have other presidents families before and famous people however haven't ran across them yet. I really think I sold them once at a flea market I set up at LOL

I bought them for my own use and as I tire of things I sell them,some reason these hadn't hit the flea market or one of my yard sale yet

If Hillary runs for the presidency in 2016 which I think she will and win's then as our first lady president  these will a hot collectible? maybe 

They even show Hillary's mother Virginia Clinton Kelly and of course Chelsea. These are by Tom Tierney 

Here is another item I use to collect because my Mom got me started because she loved these Jewel Tea Autumn Leaf dishes.I have her complete set and this is a club member item, you had to be a member of the Jewel Tea Club to have privilege to order special pieces made by Hall China company for the Club.
It is dated on bottom 1994. It's a small syrup pitcher 

I have the tea for two tea pot also along with lots of other pieces,most will be out on the table for Saturday sale.
I wish things were good like back in the 1980's and 1990's where you could have an auction and get rid of all of it one day. Also make lots money selling your treasures. Now days what I collected is not valuable or is it?

Linky parties I like 


  1. I wish one could sell china easily. We have to just about give it away. We have auctions here in Georgia but I do not go to them as it is so easy to get in bidding wars.

  2. Wow! Those are some unique paper dolls!

  3. Those are great treasures. I had never heard of those paper dolls like that. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  4. Hold on to those dolls, you never know! Everyone wants a deal, I'm so horrible at it all.
    I usually buy high and sell low, LOL!!!! Wishing you lots of luck.

  5. Wow
    Those are interesting paper dolls.
    and they look so new too.
    who knows they might be worth a lot of money

  6. Do they still make presidential paper dolls? I'm sure they do...especially to sell at the gift shops at the White House lol! The only paper dolls that I have are Doris Day ones....Some of the pieces of clothing were cut out but only a few...hmmm...wonder where they went to?!! lol!

  7. Those paper dolls are really fun! I have never collected for investment, just for personal pleasure, but I know what you mean about the trends changing and what's hot ebbs and flows.

  8. Neat paper dolls. Your teapot is so pretty. Wish I could come to your sale. laurie

  9. oh yes,,,,,,definitely hold onto the Clinton paper dolls until 2016!

  10. I remember these! I used to love dressing them in different clothes and pretend they were off to work or the show or a walk in the park. Such simple toys, dolls, but so entertaining, back then, in the early 70s!


  11. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment - nice to meet you! Interesting that you grew up in Mt Vernon...I have friends who have lived there a long time. It's a small world, you never know...does the last name, Kniffen ring a bell? I have so many vintage things, too. In fact, I've been cleaning out my house and basement and have several boxes of stuff I want to get rid of. I don't want to sell on eBay though. I've tried some different Facebook selling groups with no luck. Now I just contacted a woman who opened a vintage store in my area and she accepts items on consignment. I hope she needs some stuff - and that it sells!

    1. I wen to high school with Michael Kniffen our freshman year 1961

  12. Love those paper dolls and what memories of my childhood they brought back!!
    Autumn Leaf is such a pretty pattern!!

    Thanks so much for stopping by!!


  13. Yes, I think they may become even more valuable in time.
    I've noticed that it's harder to get rid of antiques now too.

  14. Oh my, you stumbled across a good find. I believe she will be the future President if not Chelsea some year? Loved playing with paper dolls many moons ago!
