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!
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.
I had an excellent dolly score this week, with three Monster High dolls, a Fashionista Barbie, a One Direction doll, Chelsea and Stacie dolls, three Steffi Love dolls, a couple of Disney dolls and several Barbie and similar clothing. I also found a Teksta robot puppy, a Five Nights at Freddy’s figure, a Chub City figure, a Fartist Club figure, and lots of other little bits and pieces. I also found Iron Maiden patch!
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.
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.
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.
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 and had also been reduced. 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?”. Never one to pass up a deal on a job lot of toys (or music), she whipped out a calculator, made her offer and I snapped them up. I then toddled off home to take a good look at what I had just purchased.
