Hello, another Barbie Wednesday is here! This was a neat flea market find a few years ago. Barbie's Quick Curl Boutique! It came out in 1972.

This case has such beautiful psychedelic swirls and flowers. It's a very small case probably used mostly for holding Barbie's clothes.


Of coarse Barbie's lamp and shag rug is pink too! I wish I could find another one to see what originally came with it as the vanity chair. I borrowed this chair from one of Barbie's 70's orange and green furniture sets.

This spot just seemed perfect for showcasing Barbie's favorite outfits!


I also wanted to share another Barbie commercial I found. This is the first ever Barbie commercial.



I love the slogan! "You can tell it's Mattel. It's swell"
I wonder how long they used that slogan? It's kinda corny but I like it!

Next Barbie Wednesday will be extra special. I was given some very wonderful vintage Barbie gifts from a blogging friend when we did a Halloween swap together. So October 8th is when we are to share what are partners gave us. I can't wait to share it with you!

See you soon, Lindsey

What a cute commercial.
Only $3 for Barbie. I know at that time it wasn't cheap.

Can't wait to see your other Barbie

Lindsey, when I saw this I immediately noticed the gold cocktail dress because - I HAVE it TOO! Found it at an antique store about 25 years ago! Love reading your blog and look forward to all the Barbie finds. The original Barbie commercial is great! Have a little something for you to see over at my new blog this Wednesday - so please stop by, its kinda a thank you for all your Barbie sharing.
