I don't really have a vintage Barbie, but I found a reproduction of the first ponytail Barbie in the "Solo In the Spotlight" outfit for a few bucks at a flea market. I've made a couple outfits for her and always assumed that I probably wouldn't be able to afford real vintage clothes. Surprisingly enough, though, I've found that you can sometimes find the old outfits for pretty reasonable prices if you don't get hung up on completeness (all the little shoes and jewelry and doodads). I found the "Suburban Shopper" dress at a yard sale for around $4, minus the hat and with a funky stain that I was able to remove--it looks really cute on her!
Oh, and I'm not an expert at the vintage dolls, but I can take a swing at ID'ing if you want to post picks
