Seven Troll Mambo Through The Nightgarden

Last weeks finds included lots of little figures, which I love! I found Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs, Trolls & Zelfs, various mid-90s fast food toys, Pingu, Scooby Doo, My Little Pony (G3), various In My Pocket figures, a Pound Puppies Newborn, In The Night Garden, a large Minions vampire plush (who I forgot to add to photo, so have snuck him into the side!) a few books, comics and Mambos and Cha Cha Cha on LP. Ooh yes, and an ALF figure thing from the week before!

Some Kind of Boring Cabbage

Last weeks finds were most plentiful, covering the carboot on the Sunday, followed by various charity shops during the week, and seem to have found lots of things in twos! I’m most pleased with the vintage He-Man and Stormtrooper figures, an Ever After High doll for 20p and the fabulous “Boring Postcards” book!

Guardians of the Naughty Star Lord

A bit of shopping (and a pint) in Rayleigh found me a Moxie Girlz doll and various figures (Monsters Inc., Guardians of the Galaxy, Duplo, The Corps, Pint Size Heroes, and Jurassic Park), as well as Felicity Kendal reads All About My Naughty Little Sister on LP, Star Lord Annual 1982 and a Ladybird book called More Things To Make.

Surfing with Noel Coward

A jaunt around some different charity shops uncovered a surfing Snoopy, Monster High, and various little figures (Zag Heroez, Lalaloopsy, Moshi Monsters, Squinkies, Polly Pocket, Twozies, Genie Girls, Freddo Treasures and Scooby Doo). I also found three books (Hellraiser,  The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshoppers Feast and Our Friend the Policeman) and six LP’s of dubious quality.

TrollBots: Hedgehogs In Disguise

On Thursday I took a wander into Leigh to see what I could see, and came back with three My Little Pony: The Movie figures, RoadBots, Power Rangers: Time Force, Care Bears, Zelfs and Trolls, plus and a wonderfully illustrated biology book from the 1960’s. And on Monday, I found another My Little Pony, Sonic The Hedgehog, Felix The Cat, Shnooks, a few mini items (Littlest Pet Shop, Star Wars, Disney and Moshi Monsters), a lovely illustrated children’s book, and three volumes of Golden Hands sewing magazines from the 1970’s.

Hunting For The Littlest Trump

On Saturday I came back with two books (My Little Pony and Richard Scarry), and Monday’s volunteering found me a Zelf and two Littlest Pet Shop kitten baskets. Tuesday was much more fruitful, with two Monster High dolls, three Ever After High dolls, a Supergirl doll, a baby Lalaloopsy, more Littlest Pet Shop, another Zelf, a Funko Mystery Mini, a Twisthead, a MLP blind bag mini, a Barbie stool and several more packs of Top Trumps. Oh, and a pack of Old Maid.

Elsa’s Monster Trumps

I found several things over the course of this week in various charity shops including Inside Out, Lego Movie Happy Meal, Top Trumps Angel, TT Doctor Who and TT Cars, My Little Pony, Miles From Tomorrowland, Moshi Monsters, Crazy Bones, Zelf, Elsa, Monster High, Ever After High, Wacky Races, Meg & Mog, and Little Miss Tiny.

Tickle Me Trooper

The Mr and I popped into Raleigh on Tuesday, and I found a Tickle Me Elmo, Lego Star Wars clock and Mort by Terry Pratchett. We needed milk on the way home, and the bus stop is right outside a charity shop. So we popped in and I found five little toys in the 10p box (including Piypon and Momiji). And after buying milk we happened to walk past another charity shop, where I found an original Furby and a Pinky Cooper doll!

Pygmy Puff Girl

Monday’s charity shop haul, collected up whilst volunteering, , included Monsters Inc., Cat In The Hat, Muppets, Powerpuff Girls, Harry Potter, My Little Pony (fakies?), Lego Movie 2 McDonalds Happy Meal, Littlest Pet Shop, Fizz ‘n’ Surprise and three vintage kitchen items. Plus an odd Lalaloopsy boot and a Pinypon wig. My bag was full by the time I had finished my shift!

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.
