Welcome to thechucklingduckling!

Up for auction today is an adorable red and white striped cotton swim suit.  This piece came to me with a full wardrobe of party dresses and school dresses from a little girl who grew up in the 50’s and 60’s.  This adorable size 6 child’s swim suit has been worn, but would still make a super fun display, and would even be cool framed.  The tag reads “CREATED BY tab TEEN AGE BEACH WEAR”.  The elastic on this suit should not be stretched, as it has worn out over time.  The red fabric has faded to pink a bit on the bum (see photo), presumably from chlorine.  There are no holes or tears.  If you look closely, some of the red thread is missing around the legs.  The cool dark blue anchor applique is curling slightly.  It might be good for the buyer to give this piece a gentle wash.  I did not do so, only gently pressed it with an iron.  I will leave the rest to you.  However, none of these flaws are immediately obvious.  As I said, this is a super cool, rare piece to own!  I am offering it at a low price with no reserve.  Enjoy! 


I can just imagine a little girl splashing around in her 50’s wading pool, wearing this sweet, innocent little frock!

Thanks for bidding!  Be sure to add me to your favorites, as I have a room full of fun 1940s-80s toys and children’s clothing to sell this summer, including a current auction for a pink swim suit!  Thanks!

Should you have any questions, please try to ask before Thursday, the 5th or after Saturday, the 7th, as I will be unable to check my messages for 3 days.  You may choose First Class or Priority Mail.  Thanks!

All of my items are housed in a smoke free, pet-free environment. Your payment is expected within 7 days of auction close/purchase. I will gladly combine shipping to save you money wherever practical. Due to the costs and complexity of international shipping, I no longer make this service available for large, fragile, or high value items. International Buyers MUST wait for an invoice before paying, or transaction will be canceled.
Most of the items I sell are vintage and in gently used condition. While I strive to be as knowledgeable as possible, I am not an expert on everything. Thus, just like at a live auction, this is your opportunity to ask questions, request additional photos or measurements, etc.
I am a big believer in "going green" and over 90% of my packing materials are recycled from a variety of sources.
Priority shipping may be calculated below! On items over $30, I require a charge $.80 to cover the cost of delivery confirmation tracking. I cannot be held responsible for items “lost in the mail” if you do not request and pay for Delivery Confirmation (it is up to you to request it for items under $30).
I accept PayPal Payments only. International bidding will be considered on some items, if you contact me BEFORE bidding.
Now you are through the “unfun” information - it has to be stated, and I know we are going to have a great transaction - I strive to please!
Thanks for lookin’, please take a peek at my other auctions for more fun and funky finds from the past - and have fun!
