How about some doll furniture....

I found this doll size desk/chair at the thrift store the other day and I thought it was so cute and  reminded me of the chairs that I used in high school.  I don't know if they still use this type of chair or not.  I always had problems with these chairs because I am left handed and these were all set up for right handed people.

The chair was super dirty when I got it so it must have been used a lot.  I know it would fit a toddler so maybe that was who used it.  Your wonder sometimes where has this chair been and who used it.  It would be great to hear of the history of the chair. 

I cleaned it up with some wood cleaner and because it was pretty scuffed up, I use a little stain on it the same that the chair original was done it.  It took all the marked off and I think it almost looks new.

Now this is the next neat piece of furniture that I found.  Also at a thrift store.  It was not in too bad of shape.  The top rocks and with a little wood cleaning and some oil it came out really nice.  I have added a cushion in the bottom, a doll and a quilted blanket that I made and I really like it.

This is a picture I took from the top so that you can see what I did on the inside.  I sell these all separate or with a doll and blanket of chose.

Just thought I would show you a couple of the things I have been picking up.  My hubby and I do a lot of scouting for doll furniture and for dolls and we both really enjoy the hunt.  It is always so much fun to found something a little different from the modern plastic stuff you can buy in the store.

Of course, we also have some of the plastic doll beds, strollers and carriers so we do have a large variety of things to show to all the customers.  We only have one show yet to do this spring and that is in two weeks at the AVI Casino and Resort in Laughlin, NV.  After that all that I have left will go on my website and some will go on eBay.  It is too hot here in the summer for shows so the internet is my only way to sell.  Then I will do a couple of fall shows but don't know the schedule yet on those.  I don't plan too far ahead as I don't know how my health or my hubby's health will be.  We are just taking it one day, one week at a time.

Enjoy the pictures and post a comment.  I always like to hear what others think.
