Just a couple of book finds on the way home from work on Wednesday; Monster Fun Annual (1982), and “The Cat”, from the satirical Ladybird series “How It Works”.
I quick browse through the charity shops on my way home Wednesday found me a sci-fi double of Galaxy Quest and D.A.R.Y.L., both in excellent nick. I love Galaxy Quest and we watched it straight away but I haven’t seen D.A.R.Y.L. in years, so by Grabthar’s Hammer, I will watch it this weekend!
We popped over to Rayleigh last Saturday for a snoop around the charity shops (and a few pints in The Half Moon), and found a selection of books and TV series DVD’s, including series one of Frasier, BBC’s Bleak House, and the first three Maze Runner books.
I couldn’t do a trip back to the homeland (Bath) without perusing the charity shops along Mooreland Road last Monday. I came back with two modern reprints of Fighting Fantasy books, a Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles book, and two “Well-Loved Tales” Ladybird books. I also bought Leon, Amelie, and Twilight.
Whilst out charity shopping in Westcliff last weekend we also popped into Argosy Toys where I found two Powerpuff Girls figures at half price (£2.50 each). As soon as we returned home I ordered the third one from eBay (£5.99) which swiftly turned up on Thursday.
I found an excellent mixture of items in Westcliff’s various charity shops on Saturday, including three LP’s, two annuals (Jackie & Magpie), a little Bagpus, a Lalaloopsy doll, a plush Moshi Monster, and my best find of the day, a Dolly Surprise doll from 1987!
