Vintage Disney Mickey Mouse Twin Sheet

I came across this beautiful red Mickey Mouse sheet at Value Village recently, and I was surprised to see that it was in perfect condition.


It came as a two-piece set with a much more worn pillowcase.


My mystery was solved a few minutes later as I flipped through the rest of the rack - I found the matching fitted sheet in a much more faded condition, so I left that behind. I realized that the flat sheet was probably never used at all! There is no fraying and it is in completely mint condition.


I love finding clues like this. I wasn't interested in the fitted sheet anyway since I wanted to buy this for use as fabric for my crafty sister. I've seen this pattern on ebay and it appears that the set is from the 80s.


I paid $6 for the sheet and pillowcase, which I thought was a bit steep for a used twin sheet, but I went for it because it was basically brand new.


I really like the brightness of the material and how Mickey is making all these fun faces. =)


Hope everyone's new year is off to a great start! I'm linking up to the the Penny Worthy Project, HLA's Flea Market Finds and ATG's Thrift Share Monday.

  2. My step sister had these growing up in the '90s! I never buy the fitted sheets either, although, maybe I would for a few rarer character sheets where the fitted sheets actually sell on eBay.

  6. Thanks Everyone! I think the theme must be Mickey the Actor or something, csuse he's portraying all these different emotions. =) I agree that angry Mickey is so odd to see, but neat to see his range as an actor, haha.

  8. For some reason no one (but me) in our house likes to use the top (flat) sheet, so I've ended up with tons of sheets - wonderful for all sorts of projects, though. Mickey looks like he will have great potential!

  9. Interesting, Jane - you know, when we were kids, my Mom just used the flat sheet the same way as the fitted ones. She would just tuck the ends under the mattress.

  10. Good score on the Mickey sheet. I never used to use a flat sheet when I was a kid. The material will make a very interesting project.

  11. i love the thrill of solving a mystery. you're right that it's over priced (as most things at Value Village are, but since they have to pay their staff you have to live with that!) but as one of your commenters indicated, when you think of it as fabric, it's actually a great find!
