Vintage Girl Scout Items

My sister lives in Rhode Island.  She's not a thrifter or yard saler.  I know, it confuses me, too.  Anyway, she recently scored a large lot of vintage Girl Scout stuff and sent it to me to put in my Etsy shop.  I have been dragging my feet because I was unsure how to list it.  All together for one price?  Each piece individually?  Some of both?  I decided some of both was the way to go, so I am working on getting all of what you will see in this post in the Etsy shop.

In the meantime, I'll share it with you.

First, we have this Girl Scout uniform dress, probably from the 1950's.

That's actually Bekah, my 8 year old, modeling the dress.  I would guess this dress was worn by a much older girl back in the 1950's, but it almost fits her, so I would estimate it at a modern size girls 10.

The dress is in remarkably good shape for it's age.  It has two very small spots, but otherwise is wonderful.

There were also a bunch of patches and pins.

And this adorable collapsible aluminum cup.

Yeah, that's too cute.

Speaking of too cute, here is Bekah in the dress, belt, sash, beret, and necktie.

I can't believe the Girl Scouts gave up the beret.

I'm linking up with Coloradolady for Vintage Thingie Thursday and Her Library Adventure for Flea Market Finds.


  1. Oh, love it. I just went to the 100 Th year celebration, with my daughter Lucie, in Sacramento and they had many of the vintage uniforms on display. It was one of favorite parts of the event. Bekah is adorable! Looks like she was made to be Girl Scout! Great find! Not sure how to list it...I'd sell the whole uniform together for sure. maybe the patches separate? Love it!

  2. Oh gosh some of these Girl Scout Items look familiar! Good score!

  3. What a great post on Girl Scout things. Never would have thought of that. I am sure you will find some use in them.
