969 1959-64 BARBIE DOLL SUBURBAN SHOPPER DRESS, HAT
Price / kg:
Vintage Barbie Suburban Shopper #969 (1959-1964)
Blue & White Sundress
Straw Hat with Blue Ribbon
Pearl Drop Necklace
Straw Purse with Fruit
White Open Toe Heels
This adorable cotton sundress (the fabric and print always remind me of a tablecloth!) and big straw hat is such a great representation of casual wear in the late 50s, early 60s.
The dress has a full skirt and back zipper. The cloth tag will have the TM if made in 1959 and the ?? if made later.
Because of the hardy fabric and the five year run, this dress is easy to find. The accessories are also fairly easy to obtain, although it is rare to find a hat in mint condition, as they are prone to unravel around the edges.
Busy Morning #956 (1963) was a variation of this ensemble, with an orange sundress.
Mattel issued a Suburban Shopper Reproduction in 2001. from doll reference.. I have two sets of Suburban Shopper for Barbie that I am listing here.. I have other pieces listed separately.. for instance the pink telephone.. I have two sets of one strappy blue and white sun dress and one hat for 40. each. ONE SET has the proper hat with nice ribbon and the other dress has a Hedy Lamour style straw hat with blue ribbon.. I do have another appropriate hat and if you wish the proper hat instead of this sweet big straw hat let me know.. When going through the process let me know which set you wish. I have individual dresses as well.... I have a single dress for 18.00 and I have a single dress for 14.00 that needs a zipper on the back or fasteners and is in lovely condition.. these will go as packet mail.
