Thrifting and rummage sale-ing can be loads of fun. Take this past October, for example. My church had it's rummage sale, and it's always a bear. While helping set up, I discovered an interesting set of items. Two seemingly random backdrop pieces and a house shell for 12 inch fashion dolls. I could tell by the stickers in the picture frames and the quality of the craftsmanship that it was genuine Barbie stuff, but I'd never seen anything quite like it. I took to the trusty Google and searched for it as soon as I found the date stamped on the bottom of 2004. To my delight, I found it to be a Barbie My House playset! Produced twice, in two different styles, this playset allowed girls to configure the house however they desired, and conveniently put everything away in one flat package. Mine is now missing the chairs, bed, and other accessories that once went with it, but all the same, it's a great piece of equipment.
