Secondhand

Stuff I search out to buy on eBay etc.

Hairy Tales

My secondhand buys from June included four Punzels, a very tangled Fairy Tails bird, a Novi Stars doll and an Equestria Girls Doll.

It’s A Girl’s World!

I was more excited than I should have been whilst awaiting the arrival of this 1979 Girl’s World! This is the hair colouring version. The box is a bit beaten up but the head is in great condition and growing hair still works. Also included were several accessories.

More Care Bears By Post!

I bought myself some more original Care Bears a couple of weeks ago from eBay after buying six others in June. Arriving in the post were four poseable Care Bears, four miniatures Care Bears and one poseable Wuzzle. Happy days!

Take Your Care Bear To Work Day

I rarely buy second-hand toys, preferring the pot luck of charity shops, but a couple of weeks ago I went a bit mad a bought a My Pet Monster and a group of Care Bears from eBay. Monster turned up first, then last Monday these guys turned up at work!

The Great Pantyhose Crafts Books [1982 & 1985]

A few weeks back I received these eagerly awaited beauties; two craft books by Ed & Stevie Baldwin featuring some of the most creepy 1980’s pantyhose craft creations you’ll ever see. It was possibly more a “thing” in the US, where pantyhose sculptures were to be found adorning tables at church fates and old peoples homes the country over. The English translation of “Tight Crafts” conjurers up images of playing sardines whilst crocheting.
