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!
The Mr and I took a waddle around Rayleigh earlier this week after a spot of luncheon (I do love a ploughman’s). I found a Moshi Monsters duvet set, Zelfs, My Little Pony, Powerpuff Girls and four DVD’s to add to the ever growing pile of “to watch”.
A trip to Chelmsford last Friday turned up a few little trinkets (as well as a whole lot of rain)! I found a medium sized Frizzys, “The Ninth Gate”, an eighties edition Terry Pratchett book (The Colour of Magic) and a Hieronymus Bosch book from the fifties!
Saturday’s finds include Gimme Gimme Gimme, Teen Wolf, Star Trek, Extras, Men Behaving Badly (through the post) and Paddington! I wasn’t in the mood to go through LP’s and didn’t find any toys worth getting.
I wasn’t going to let the sweltering heat put me off my charity shop mooching on my way home from work this week and found Zelfs, Quadrophenia, Highlander, Hogfather and Revelation. I also found a cat scratching post for the kitties!
I found a nice little selection of goodies last week, including lots of books (Cockleshell Bay, Dr Suess, Grey Rabbit, Flippy Frog and several more), three toys (Moshi Monsters and Glo Kids), movies (Trainspotting and Lost Highway) and some shiny beads.
This weeks after-work charity shop finds included four DVD’s (The Hitchhicker’s Guide To The Galaxy, The Big Lebowski, From Hell and Judge Dredd) one CD (The 80s Movie Album: The Brat Pack Years), and one book (Tales of Mrs Hedgehog).
A step out through Leigh on Saturday afternoon brought forth Hoobs aplenty, plush My Little Ponies, a kittenless Kitty Surprise, a friend of YooHoo, and more Clangers. Plus Austin Powers, Indiana Jones, George Formby, Frankie Howerd and ilk, and Pinky & Perky. I also bought an adapter and two loose plugs. Yeah, baby!
An impromptu visit to the dentists last week lead to various charity shop finds. I found a Barbie “Rainbow Lights Mermaid”, three LP’s, a bottomless money bank doll, “Where The Wild Things Are”, “Pan’s Labyrinth”, and a holographic millennium party CD.
I couldn’t do a trip back to the homeland (Bath) without perusing the charity shops along Mooreland Road last Monday. I came back with two modern reprints of Fighting Fantasy books, a Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles book, and two “Well-Loved Tales” Ladybird books. I also bought Leon, Amelie, and Twilight.
A few little finds this week. Tuesday took me over to Rayleigh for my annual teeth scraping, where afterwards I rummaged through various charity shops little toy baskets and came away with a few cute items. Then Wednesday after work I purchased four books and three movies.
A bit of a mixture from the charity shops this week. I found a little Ridgeway Steelite milk jug with a 1950’s design for £2.00, The Tommy Cooper Joke Book for £1.00, and lastly the Desperate Romantics DVD for £1.50.
An unexpected trip down the road to buy brushes for broom handles at the weekend resulted in this random selection of items from the Lions Club charity shop. I found a Palace Pets cat, a My Little Pony, a dress-up doll, a panda purse, Ghostbusters, and the craziest duvet set I have ever seen!
