I love rummaging around in a good charity shop, you never know what little gem you may find! I look for toys and LP's mostly, but also books, movies and the occasional piece of clothing. Sometimes I search out secondhand items, and even the odd new thing (when the mood takes).

Lala Zombie Star

It’s been a long time since I’ve gone to a carboot sale, and there seemed to be a lot more toot that I remember! Needless to say, I found a few toys regardless, including Novi Stars, Once Upon A Zombie, Monster High, I Love Minnie, Lalaloopsy and My Little Pony.

Elsa’s Monster Trumps

I found several things over the course of this week in various charity shops including Inside Out, Lego Movie Happy Meal, Top Trumps Angel, TT Doctor Who and TT Cars, My Little Pony, Miles From Tomorrowland, Moshi Monsters, Crazy Bones, Zelf, Elsa, Monster High, Ever After High, Wacky Races, Meg & Mog, and Little Miss Tiny.

Tickle Me Trooper

The Mr and I popped into Raleigh on Tuesday, and I found a Tickle Me Elmo, Lego Star Wars clock and Mort by Terry Pratchett. We needed milk on the way home, and the bus stop is right outside a charity shop. So we popped in and I found five little toys in the 10p box (including Piypon and Momiji). And after buying milk we happened to walk past another charity shop, where I found an original Furby and a Pinky Cooper doll!

Pygmy Puff Girl

Monday’s charity shop haul, collected up whilst volunteering, , included Monsters Inc., Cat In The Hat, Muppets, Powerpuff Girls, Harry Potter, My Little Pony (fakies?), Lego Movie 2 McDonalds Happy Meal, Littlest Pet Shop, Fizz ‘n’ Surprise and three vintage kitchen items. Plus an odd Lalaloopsy boot and a Pinypon wig. My bag was full by the time I had finished my shift!

The Lexicon of Kermit

I found a few toys in my local charity shops towards the end on March (Kermit, VIP Pets, Moshi Monsters, Barbie, Zelfs, Party Pop Teenines & a Lego Movie 2 Happy Meal toy) and a Madonna CD. I can’t remember exactly when I bought the Lexicon game as it was hidden in my desk drawer to stop the little cat from eating the elastic band keeping it all together (it was recent though)!

He-Man’s Tickle Sorcery

The mister and I popped out on Saturday for a mooch around town (there may also have been cider) and I came back with all sorts of goodies! I found a Mr Tickle money pot, two Lalaloopsy dolls, a pink Frizzys, The Graffalo, a Puppy Surprise talking baby, two more Furbys, a Moshi Monster, Masters Of The Universe and Fighting Fantasy books, and a Rubik’s Octagon.

Sweet Mr Monster Hedge

Half term week meant lots of pottering around and lots of charity shop finds. It’s a good job I am about to put up some more shelves as I’ve run out of room! I found Sweet Valley High, Lalaloopsy, Sweet Secrets, Furbys, Moshi Monsters, Glimmies, Ladybird and Brambly Hedge books, Puppy Surprise, Equestria Girls, Monster High, Ever After High & Mr Men.

Star Wars High

A couple of weeks ago I found a Lego Star Wars: Rogue One “K-2SO” figure in the Salvation Army charity shop, followed a week later by a Monster High “Geni Grant” doll. I thought it would be fun to photograph them together!
