I found this doll at Miracle Hill the other day and thought she looked so proud. I fet bad for her all disheveled and yellowed. At least she was high in a shelf where kids couldn't get to her in her wedding gown. She was $2.50. I brought her home and named her Jane and gave her to Beatrice with a new outfit. She is from 1965.
When I was little I loved dolls. I had Sarah and Pete. Sarah had blonde hair that was actually pretty disgusting, but I didn't mind. She was beautiful. Pete was cute... until he got lost in the woods for a year. When I found him he was black with mildew and had to soak in bleach. I still have him. Nobody else could love him because he still looks like he has a dread disease.
I found another vintage doll recently. He has choppy, bleached looking hair that greatly resembles Sharon Needle's boy persona:
