Friday Finds, Berry Style: Strawberry Shortcake Treats

Strawberry Shortcake Star Comics 1Last week's X-Men Friday Finds theme was in anticipation of frolicking about at Baltimore Comic-Con. True to my thrifty mutation, I picked many X-Men comic books from $.25 and $1 bins. I even splurged a blueberry bit and bought Uncanny X-Men #350 for $10. *pets shiny foil cover* I had been waiting to read the trial of Gambit for years, and devoured it as soon as we reached our hotel room Saturday night.

Sunday I stumbled upon an even more delicious comic book - Strawberry Shortcake's Great Pie-Baking Contest! It was printed in April 1985, when I was only three years old. I still have the original dolls from my childhood, and even snagged the entire 80's cartoon series on VHS off eBay several years ago. In the afterglow of adding this sweet book to my collection, today's handmade finds from Etsy are devoted to Strawberry Shortcake and her berry friends.

  12. Great stuff! I loved Strawberry Shortcake when I was little. When I was a teenager I actually had a comic book with some friends that circulated through the Pittsburgh Comic book convention and the one in Toronto, it was called The Misfits. I was a collector of Michael Turner's stuff -- mostly Witchblade and Fathom. Your post brought back some great memories for me -- Thanks! : )

  13. So cute! I loved Strawberry Shortcake as a kid!
