My antiquing friend, Donna, and I made a morning of it last Saturday. After such a sad week, it was nice to enjoy a couple of hours of browsing and chatting, followed by lunch (and more chatting).
And the treasure I found this time? A Lennon Sisters paper doll set, dated 1957. I was too young at that time to play with paper dolls, but I do remember the Lennon Sisters.
From the left, Janet, Dianne, Peggy and Kathy.
This is just a sample of the clothes that were included. Obviously, the little girl who owned this set took good care of it.
My friend, Janet, emailed me later in the weekend and asked what I’d found while antiquing. I replied with news about the Lennon Sisters paper dolls. She then wrote that she always liked the Lennon Sisters, because one was named Janet. And I reminded her that one was named Dianne (my nickname). So in honor of Janet and Dianne, I “dressed” the two of them and actually found two of the little cardboard stands on which to display them.
This little treasure set me back a whopping 50 cents.
Now, I wonder if I could get any of my friends to come over and play paper dolls?
