Texas mom, Sara Ahmed realised after the pandemic that her family of four needed more space.
After searching for the perfect home, she fell in love with a house in Sugar Land.
“The house was dilapidated, for sure. It had not been lived in for over two years [after] the previous owner had passed away… But I just fell in love with the bones and it felt warm and fuzzy,” she tells Yahoo Life.
As she roamed her new home, she made a delightful discovery in the attic. Among old love letters and military awards was over 100 vintage (and some) rare Barbie dolls, most of which were still in their original packaging.
“I was like, ‘This is not the Barbies I grew up with,'” she recalls. “Then I started opening the box and uncovered more and more And I thought, ‘hHw can all these Barbies be boxed? Clearly we have a collector here.'”
Some of the unique included a Barbie dressed in vintage clothing holding a See’s Candies bag, a beautiful South African princess, a 1959 Barbie sporting a black-and-white bathing suit and a gorgeous dark-skinned Barbie in a flowing white dress and fierce afro.
