She was a much larger size doll than the popular Barbie doll of the same period. I can recall as a kid going into our local Grocery Store and seeing the Jimmy Jet display. How I desperately wanted that toy. Well I got it, but not until I was about 40 years old and that was 25 years ago. I still have it too. Well back to Candy Fashion. This Display is in great shape. It came from a man who was a Deluxe Reading Sales Rep. The only issue with this item is the blue dress has some thread pulls in a few places on the front and I can’t say if it was done decades ago or if it could possibly have been done by an insect. This is also true on the dress that Candy is wearing. I tried to get pictures of it but its kind of hard to do so through the plastic. I think if you can get hold of some replacements you should be able to get in to the display and change them and it should not be an expensive fix to find those articles of clothing loose. Cosmetically on the outside of the display it looks really nice and makes for a fantastic display piece. Check out my Deluxe Dream Kitchen Display too! Depending on what it sells for I may be willing to meet you within a 1 hour radius from Barre Vermont which would be close to the Canadian border going North and South to West Lebanon NH. And South West to Rutland, Vt. And probably North West to Colchester, Vt. To give you an idea. The item “1961 Deluxe Reading Candy Fashion Store Display” is in sale since Friday, April 17, 2020.
