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).

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!

Garfield In Fluppyland

It was half term last week, so the Mr and I went out and about a few places. Said places, also having charity shops, provided me with a few extra much needed items to fill my shelves with! Amongst my finds were My Little Pony, Moshi Monsters, Furbys and a Fluppy Puppy! I also found a few books (Garfield and Beano), an Alice In Wonderland LP and a Marvel duvet cover.

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.
