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).

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.

Count Danger Popples

I started volunteering in my favourite charity shop on Monday morning (The Lions), and on my way into the children’s section my eyes were magnetically drawn to a small plush toy sitting on the shelf. It was a POPPLES! Through out the morning I also picked up a few G4 My Little Ponies, a Danger Mouse pin, another kitty purse, a Shopkins “Strawberry Kiss” Illumi-mate, a Miffy book and a Count Duckula book.

Monster High, Monster Find!

Way back last year, well only October actually, I came across a large selection of Monster High dolls in my local charity shop (they had just been put out for display for Halloween). Not a doll I had come across before, I was intrigued and started to take a look at them. Instantly spotted by the sales assistant, she said jokingly “how would you like the lot, we can make you an deal?”. I am now obsessed!

Pony Bath Time

My trip back to Bath in December to visit the folks proved very fruitful. I found several G3 My Little Ponies and a large selection of books and a few games (some from charity shops and others from a general auction). The books and games were to heavy to take home with me on the train, but the ponies snuck in easily!
