....friends reunited.......

...after much searching....
...and many failed ebay bids....
...today i found myself a vintage sindy doll!
...i discovered her in one of my regular squirrel haunts.....
....somebody must've cleared out their collection
because she was there with a big bundle of sindy sisters......
....so i even had a choice.....
i opted for one with all her limbs intact, big hair, sweet face...
....but sadly no pants!
....she's a cutie though and brings back 
lots of childhood memories...
...all i need now is a 'pippa' and an 'amanda-jane baby' doll...
(oh and some sindy underwear!)
....my little etsy shop has been very busy....
...but i have been replenishing my stock
with lots of cute bits and pieces ....
...so do keep an eye open....
...just in case there's an old friend
you might need reuniting with?!?

.....hope you are feeling springy!

  1. This post has brought back memories for me too... my lovely Dad brought me a commemorative Sindy back from Wembley in 1966 when we won the World Cup ... unfortunately as I was only 5 I didn't appreciate the greatness of her and gave her turquoise eye shadow with a felt pen ... wonder what she would be worth if I had kept her in the box, not loved her, adorned her and just took her down and gazed at the beauty within? That was never going to happen ...

    Thanks for the memories xxx

  4. Ohhhhh Sindy & Pippa dolls, I used to play for hours with mine! I wonder if my old Sindy house is in my parents attic, blimey the dolls might still be there too. I don't think my boys would be pleased though! A lovely find for you.

  6. Ooh the checked flowery fabric is gorgeous. When I was about 10 I found a Sindy doll in the sandpit at my local park. I rather foolishly swapped it with a friend for a gonk. It's one of my few regrets.....xx

  8. Oh I love Sindy! I still have mine. She's still with me after being dunked in the bath and paddling pool - not to mention being thrown out of windows hanging from a piece of string! (my brother and I used to play Tarzan and Jane with our action man and Sindy) Such memories. x

  14. I used to have a very similar Sindy, I washed her hair which made it a bit unruly, and bit all her fingers off her right hand, poor thing! I found you via Lazy Daisy, you have such a lovely blog!

  17. I have just found your lovely blog and loved the pics of the Sindy doll. My favourite book growing up was my Sindy Gift Book (1965) which I still have, although it is falling apart now. Some of the pages from the Double Trouble story were torn but I was able to use some of the pics and made some retro cards :)
