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).
I found a mixture of things this week, including vintage plastic picnic items (Mr Men!), Teeny Tiny Tumbles Surprise, Polly Pocket, Monster High, a furry bunny bag, Black Books and two fruity t-shirts!
Last weeks finds included Lalaloopsy, Monster High (doll and purse), My Little Pony (two ponies and a tin), Lego & Fabuland figures, Twistheads, TokiDoki and Rabbids. I also found a rather nice Kimmidoll bookend.
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.
Last week I found a variety of dolls (Equestria Girls, Shopkins Shoppies, La Dee Da, Bratzillas, Ever After High, Shibajuku Girls, Moxie Teenz), My Little Ponies, Palace Pets, and a couple of MH & EAH playsets. I even got some free stuff!
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.
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!
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.
Ever since I started collecting Monster High by accident back in October I have been on the look out for them in charity shops, and was most pleased to find a couple of dolls plus a bag of mixed Monster High & Ever After High items last week.
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!
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!
