I thought this description was pretty funny. I don't know what weekend long

If I collected Poppy Parker, I'd definitely want Sumer of Love. Her hair is lovely and the dress is pretty. On eBay, she has already sold for a low of $277 to high of $425. There are several higher asking prices currently.
Peace of My Heart seems to be averaging at $400-$450.
Time of The Season looks like it's going for around $340-$375.
Prices will go down as the week progresses.

I like the outfit on the "Peace of My Heart" Companion Doll. It's very cute. 
The notice says that the dolls come with an alternate "I love you sign" hand. I don't see it in the photos. 

To the photographer who shot these images, I wish you would have used a different background color. I'm not sure what the intention was in using a color so similar and without much contrast to the doll but she is disappearing into it. Were you going for vintage? It didn't work. :-(


The W Club is holding a "right to buy" lottery for what remains of these convention dolls. Members have been sent instructions for entering.

Another Hippie Poppy and I Really Don't Care, Do You?

With so many members of the W Club who weren't even born yet in the 60's and who don't have any idea about what it was like, this doll will be ideal. As far as I'm concerned, she's just another hippie wannabe doll. The one unique thing I see is a hand making the peace sign. Now that's different and it's pretty funny. It looks slightly small but that may just be the photo.
I must tell you that most 'real' hippies do not have highlighted hair and do not wear eye makeup. But Poppy is not real and I really don't care. She looks as if she really doesn't care either. Do you?




"Free Spirit" 

A Little Nazi

Joni Mitchell-Woodstock (1969 Live)


I came upon a child of God

He was walking along the road
And I asked him, where are you going
And this he told me
I'm going on down to Yasgur's farm
I'm going to join in a rock 'n' roll band
I'm going to camp out on the land
I'm going to try an' get my soul free
We are stardust
We are golden
And we've got to get ourselves
Back to the garden
Then can I walk beside you

I have come here to lose the smog
And I feel to be a cog in something turning
Well maybe it is just the time of year
Or maybe it's the time of man
I don't know who l am
But you know life is for learning
We are stardust
We are golden
And we've got to get ourselves
Back to the garden
By the time we got to Woodstock

We were half a million strong
And everywhere there was song and celebration
And I dreamed I saw the bombers
Riding shotgun in the sky
And they were turning into butterflies
Above our nation
We are stardust
Billion year old carbon
We are golden
Caught in the devil's bargain
And we've got to get ourselves
Back to the garden
